Mark 16:15 – And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
From June 26th through July 9th, I am going on a short-term mission trip to Swaziland, Africa, to assist the local missionaries there, as well as to assist with the repairs of buildings used to help with the medical needs of the people there. Buildings used to help with the medical needs of the people there, Swaziland, Africa. In January 2019, I will be participating in a short-term mission trip to eSwantini (Swaziland), Africa with Adventure Soccer, serving and sharing the love of Christ.
Short-term mission trips in Africa, like those we run, provide an amazing opportunity for people of all walks of life to get out there and share the Good News of Salvation. Go Volunteer Africa offers a variety of types of short term mission trips for university and high school students, church groups, working adults, and families. Mission trips in Africa range from 2 weeks up to 8 weeks, and opportunities are available all year long, in a variety of destinations throughout Africa.
1 Corinthians 9:22 – To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.
While you are on short-term missions trips in Africa, you will also take guided excursions and immersive tours which allow you to experience the cultures, history, people, wildlife, or landscapes of African countries. Whilst on a Love Africa mission trip, you will get a chance to work with experienced missionaries in Africa.
Love Africa Mission wants the people that travel with them to share the love of Jesus to African people. Love Africa Mission offers several trips during the summer to Uganda, Zambia, Kenya, and Rwanda. Love Africa Mission also offers a 2-month placement, staying in each of these four countries. Experience Mission also wants members of the Mission Team to get the chance to hear the stories of others, as well as having a chance to share your own testimony.
Isaiah 6:8 – Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.
Involvement allows a mission team to be working with locals. This partnership in prayer and finances also includes traveling to the site one time per year, taking a team from your church with you, building relationships with the community and children. Each group will keep serving that family, visiting the family, praying with them, and listening to them and encouraging them.
The missionaries there view our mission discovery teams as ambassadors of the story of Bulembu Ministries. Five of its first-time missionaries went on to serve on mission trips, either with another organization or with us. HIS Missions has sent more than 160+ missionaries on missions, training, rescue, and domestic teams trips. Since establishing this ministry in 1989, Adventures In Missions (AIM) has worked together each year with other churches to develop a worldwide network of Mission Training Centers that equip domestic missionaries to fulfill Gods great commission.
Romans 1:16 – For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
If your hearts set on a foreign land, His Missions would like to work with you to design a customized trip for your church. The primary focus of our ministry would be supporting the work of the Adventure Soccer Ministry, a tremendous Christian-outreach effort serving orphans and vulnerable children in response to the mass AIDS crisis in Africa. Our Covenant Love Church is working with Kudvumisa Foundation in Swaziland, founded in 2005 by Daran and Teresa, who are on a mission of providing compassionate healthcare in villages that have HIV.
We are traveling with amazing friends and working with the Project Canaan organization in Swaziland. Before we left on our journey to serve with Project Canaan in Swaziland Swaziland, I was pretty worried. While we did indeed travel into Swaziland communities during our trip to hand out Meals on Wheels packets for starving children, eggs from the Project Canaan in Swaziland Dairy Farm, clothes, and donated toys and trinkets, most of our time was spent at Project Canaan.
Acts 1:8 – But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
I was able to experience new cultures and have a little taste of what it is like on the mission field. Africa was the place I discovered my love and passion for missions.
At the age of 14, while on a mission trip in West Africa, I saw so many missionaries being sent and uncared for, except with a monthly monetary support. Karen Dedmon and her husband, Scott, were part of early teams in Swaziland, (now called Eswatini), and saw ways that they could get involved in helping to address specific needs in Swaziland. Over time, the First Baptist Church in D.C. began working together with Baptist churches in Swaziland.
Another one of many ways that the Schmelzenbachs were able to reach African nations was through leaders in the Ladies Missionary Society of Foreign Nations, which is now known as the International Nazarene Missions Organization, or NMI. Harmon Schmelzenbachs vision paid off, allowing the denomination to reach places that other mission organizations were not allowed because they had not registered before a cutoff date. Perhaps the strongest proof of Harmons vision was a trip that Harmon Schmelzenbach took to the governments offices of other African countries to officially register the denomination.
Luke 19:10 – For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.
The teams annual short-term missions eventually expanded to include building projects, particularly in southern Swaziland. Mission trips to Ghana frequently included construction and labor in the local orphanages, many of which had been orphaned, abandoned, or had been previously trafficked as children. You will find a lot of mission trips in Tanzania, which help to feed the orphans, as well as train the locals in skills like making quilts and planting rice. If you are not able to participate in a mission trip, but still want to help support the mission of Arise Africa, you might consider becoming a Child Sponsor.
In the meantime, please feel free to look into other organizations offering trips to Africa, and you will see the cost of travel is around $6,500. Love Africa Missions desires are for each individual who serves a short-term trip with us to return home with a clear vision and pure passion for serving where they live.
2 Timothy 2:15 – Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
