Zambia (MNN) — In Matthew 9:37, Jesus tells his disciples “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.”
Every Orphan’s Hope knows this is true, and to help encourage more workers, they started AfricaTrek Missions Outfitters. Their mission “is to mobilize, equip and assist the local church in their calling to send you, your family, youth group or small group to the front-lines of God’s orphan rescue mission in Africa.”
They answer three questions for people interested in helping in Africa. First, “Why go?” They answer this with Matthew 9:37 and challenge as many people as possible to help out the millions of orphaned children who need to hear of Jesus’ love.
The next question is “Who can go?” They say if someone agrees with their statement of faith and “can give a cup of water to a thirsty child,” then they can go.
The final question is “How to go?” For this they list an easy five steps: pray for God’s direction, select the AfricaTrek trip, apply by submitting an application, respond to the AfricaTrek leader who contacts the individual for more information and prepare for the trip with training and review guidelines.
If you would like to become involved with EOH’s AfricaTrek, they have two Camp Hope trips this summer to Zambia. The first camp is from July 9 to July 21, and the second is July 30 to August 11.
Camp Hope, according to EOH, “is a Bible camp outreach ministry designed to share the life transforming Gospel of Jesus Christ with orphans in HIV/AIDS affected communities.”
Children will be at camp for four days and nights. While there, they will learn about the truth of God’s Word, a faith in Jesus Christ, hope in God’s promises and love for God and one another.
