Sierra Leone Construction

Sierra Leone Construction

Sierra Leone, West Africa, is an extremely poor country, still suffering from the devastation of civil war. Half of its people survive by subsistence farming. GOM is bringing hope to the people of the Mokanji region through education, clean water, a medical clinic, children’s programs, and pastoral training. As our long- and short-term missionary teams grow, our ministry center must be upgraded to make it more functional and a greater blessing to the community.

For this team, we are looking for people with servants’ hearts who can show God’s love through their practical skills, including painters, plumbers, electricians, masons, and general handymen and women. There will be two construction teams departing in March, 2018 from North America: One at the beginning of the month and one in the middle. Each team will serve for two weeks.

Vision Trust College Student Team Dominican Republic

Vision Trust College Student Team Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic occupies the eastern two-thirds of a shared island with Haiti. The island was originally founded as the first Spanish colony of Hispaniola when it was discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1492, but it wasn’t until 1844 that the Dominican Republic became its own nation. Santo Domingo is the capital city, located on the southern coast. It is the largest city and port in the country, and it is said that Christopher Columbus’ remains are located in one of the city’s cathedrals.

Today, the Dominican Republic is a democratic nation, but the people first had to endure a long string of repressive governments. It is a highly agricultural country, with the main crops being sugarcane, coffee, tobacco and cocoa. However, as tourism grows it is challenging agriculture for the #1 spot in the economic sector. Sadly, there is a high rate for unemployment and income inequality – the poorest half of the country’s people hold less than a fifth of the money.

Worldwide, 153 millions orphans. More slaves today than at the height of the African Slave trade. Over 20,000 children dying every single day from a lack of basic resources. This trip is your chance to engage some of these children face to face and learn about the best practices to help (and not hurt) the millions of suffering children around the world. We will come alongside some amazing local Dominican leaders to help them in their ministries to the hurting children around them. We will serve as a team by playing with, loving on and discipling children in the community who are orphaned and/or severely impoverished. We’ll share our lives and testimonies as we encourage them to trust and follow the Lord who loves them so dearly. This is an incredible opportunity to make a valuable, lasting impact in the lives of the children and youth in the Dominican Republic

This team of college students will serve impoverished children and connect with local college students in the Santo Domingo community from May 26 – June 2, 2018

Vision Trust College Spring Break Orphan Care Team Peru

Vision Trust College Spring Break Orphan Care Team Peru

What makes Peru fascinating amongst the South American nations is the ancient civilizations that have inhabited its beautiful countryside, Andean Mountain Ranges, and Amazonian Rainforests. Visitors from around the world come to see the Incan Empire’s lost city on Machu Picchu, the adobe ruins of the Chan Chan people, and the mysterious Nazca Lines. Even though Spanish is the official language, over 100 different dialects are still spoken in the country.

While extremely rich in culture and beauty, Peru carries a long history of death, war, and oppression amongst its people. Woven through Peru’s past are the cannibal Wari People, the Incas who performed human sacrifice, the violent conquests of the Spanish, and most recently, the murder of thousands from 1980 – 1999 when the terrorist group known as “Shining Path” led a violent revolt against the Peruvian government.

Today 28% of Peru’s families live in a state of material poverty, earning only a few dollars a day. Unfortunately, alcoholism is prevalent amongst youth and adults, and drug-trafficking presents a tempting solution to many people’s financial difficulties. Children are regularly exposed to abuse, addiction, and violence and are more often than not left home alone to fend for themselves.

Vision Trust Brazil Summer Camp Team

Vision Trust Brazil Summer Camp Team

The largest and most populous country in South America, Brazil has placed a heavy emphasis on industrial and agricultural development. While the country has seen an increase in economic power, there is still a huge financial disparity between classes.

Finding sufficient work for its 201 million people has been a large challenge. Over a third of the country’s population lives in the slums of Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo. Forest preservation movements have specifically caused timber harvesters to lose their jobs and move their families to slums and squatter villages. In these overcrowded villages, malnourished children run free in the streets, often getting involved in drugs and prostitution. Over 500,000 babies go unregistered each year, hindering their access to many basic rights.

Although Brazil is South America’s leading economic power, drugs, prostitution, unemployment, and violence pollute the communities where we work in Goiânia, Brazil. These issues, combined with absent parents and divorce, negatively affect the local youth. VisionTrust partners with Projeto Amar 1 and Projeto Amar 2 Learning Centers in an effort to better these children’s lives by promoting spiritual, intellectual and physical growth.

Both Centers go above and beyond to take care of the children. Each child is given a shower when they arrive because they don’t receive proper hygienic care at home. Children who attend a half-day at the Center receive two meals and a snack, while nursery and pre-school students who attend all day are given three meals and two snacks. Teens learn valuable trades through an apprentice program that works with 14 different corporations. The children and teens both receive support, discipleship, encouragement and a safe haven from the streets.

Jesus Film Mission Trips – Spice Journey – Southeast Asia

Jesus Film Mission Trips – Spice Journey – Southeast Asia

Are you ready to journey to a land seemingly untouched for decades? Set in the archipelago of the Pacific Ocean, there lies a picturesque area bursting with diversity, from modern cities of millions to uninhabited pristine islands. Since the beginning of world trade, this lucrative location has been a resting point for ships and wanderers passing through. Ships from Asia, Europe and the Americas brought with them their culture and religion. Thus, this land has been touched by nearly every major people group and religion in the world. This has caused a morphing of cultures and spiritual confusion.

On this trip, we will be teaming up with a partner organization to engage with the local villages through conversational English, as well as using the Jesus Film® app and short films to bridge into spiritual conversations. Bearing witness to the personal relationship Jesus offers to us freely is our aim.

Join us as we travel to this kaleidoscopic land to bring the clarity of the gospel truth!
