Ghana

Ghana
For the past six years during the month of May a group of college students from all over the country board a plane and head to Ghana, West Africa. The majority of the time spent in Ghana is at the Village of Hope orphanage. The primary goals of the trip are to build relationships with the orphans who live at the Village of Hope and to organize and teach a VBS week for their entire school from 1st-9th grade. Additionally, the group plans various events such as a Mother’s Day party and one giant birthday party for children whose birthdays may not otherwise be recognized. Students also reach out to the surrounding villages by playing games with the local children as well as bringing toys, clothes, and school supplies. In addition, an important component of this mission is to bring clean water sources to surrounding villages that do not have access to it. During this past trip to Ghana, we were able to financially and physically aid in the drilling of three local wells. Read more

Malawi

Malawi
The Malawi Mission Project will consist of a variety of activities. The orphan village is still under construction and will need as many hands as possible to continue the building. The feeding program and the preschool have begun the trial period on the property, which will also need help in different areas. In addition, the local director would like to see a VBS done for the children of the village. Most importantly, we will need to continue building relationships with the villagers, village chiefs, and the village head man in order to maintain local support. There are several opportunities and ways to serve in Malawi if you have the willingness to go and be used by God. Read more
