Ministry details

Each day begins with personal and group devotions. In the morning you will lead childrens programs for those in the village (songs, Bible stories, memory verses, crafts, games etc). After a lunch break your team will be back on the road visiting 2-3 houses of those who are recognised as vulnerable by the local authorities (for example, elderly / single mum / disabled). Sit, chat and encourage them with scripture, testimonies and songs that the Lord puts on your heart and provide practical help through giving of a food packet and Bible. If there are additional needs in the area, you may be able to help re-establish a fence, clear rubbish, paint a door. The day could also consist of attending a youth group meeting or church prayer meeting. Resources are provided for but you are welcome to bring any extras/specifics that you also wish to use.
