Mission Trip Details 

After many expectant years, we are so excited to join forces again with our friends and co-laborers in Christ, Love Botswana and Impact Africa in Johannesburg, South Africa for an authentic and unbelievable trip into the bush and river villages of the Okavango Delta and the shanty towns of Johannesburg.

 

We'll begin our trip in Maun with an overview of basic Setswana greetings and terms; Botswana etiquette and dress standards, food, and every day living experiences. We'll spend a couple days doing ministry in Maun at their base of operations, and then hit the dusty roads of Northern Botswana to outreach into the Okavango Delta, ministering among the small villages and communities that Love Botswana impact. During our time in the Okavango Delta we'll be sleeping in tents, sitting around an "African" campfire each night debriefing the days ministry, worshipping as the sun sets over the crystal clear rivers of the Okavando Delta...a mission experience you'll remember for the rest of your life!

 

In South Africa we partner with friends who have established a powerful missions and ministry/outreach base in Johannesburg, called Impact Africa. Their hearts are wrecked for the nations and Impact Africa has seen countless come to the Lord. Many have been served, educated, and discipled in the community through the socially relevant outlets of ministry service, such as, preschools, a baby rescue and home, Community Care Centers and Impact students programs. 

 

They continue to advance the kingdom through the doors and partnerships that God opens. The harvest in South Africa is not only ripe, but is rotting. Our team(s) will have the opportunity to share the hope of Jesus Christ throughout some of the most hopeless parts of South Africa.

Our days are packed with a wide range of ministry; you will have the opportunity to share your personal testimony, share the hope of Jesus, and pray with people through house to house evangelism. You will also have the opportunity to love on all of the kiddos as we help lead the "Jabulani Kids in VBS-style programs in the communities and "squatter camps."

 

Our mission trip will culminate at Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe with an exciting safari adventure, river rafting the Zambezi, seeing the breathtaking "Smoke That Thunders" Victoria Falls, and enjoy an amazing cultural African dinner/show. While at our base in Maun, we'll take a horseback safari at the 4-Star, Royal Tree Lodge (as seen on The Amazing Race, hosted by Love Botswana)!

All our outreaches will consist of many opportunities to share the Love of God through; A variety of different evangelistic opportunities such as a VBS for the children, outdoor movie of the Jesus Film in villages, some building development, children's ministry and outreaches, sharing your testimony, praying for the needs of people as we visit their villages/homes,  discipleship, and more. This mission trip will open your eyes and hearts to unreached people groups, stretch you spiritually as we dive deeper into the awesome presence of God through worship, campfire devotions, and prayer!

We've put together a mission trip that rivals anything you've ever experienced! Indiana Jones type adventures and powerful and very authentic ministry to a people group that doesn't know the Lord...you'll see that Botswana & South Africa will carve a place in your heart! So join our team of  high school, college-aged, and young millennials from all across America and make new life-long friends!!
