Have you ever wanted to take a trip to Africa? Well, we have TWO upcoming trips that we would LOVE for you to join in on!
Alan Van Sloten, the US fund development strategist, will be leading the vision trips to Africa this upcoming year. He is a fantastic guide, and visits often. His most recent travel has been in 2015, 2018, and 2023.
What would a potential trip to Africa involve?
- CarePoint visits – during your time at the CarePoint you will see the children, their classes, have a meal, and play some games with them! This is a special time for sponsors to meet their sponsor child face to face and connect on a deeper level.
- Home visits – during this time, trip members will experience the neighborhoods and homes the children in our program live in. This is an eye-opening and life altering time. You may even meet the family your sponsor child lives with, including their siblings and guardian.
- Vacation Bible School (VBS) or Family camps – We highly encourage our trip members to put on a VBS or group activity for the children. For many of the children, this is a way they experience love and learn about their worth in the Lord.
- Lastly with a Safari! – We encourage this adventure to truly experience the beauty of Africa and see God’s creation through the incredible landscapes, animals, and experience the culture in a unique way.
The difference between a mission trip and a vision trip:
- Mission trip: Going to serve the needs at a given CarePoint. Some of these needs may be pouring into the staff and children spiritually, building, or helping check up on the children medically.
- Vision trip: Going to learn more about our CarePoints and the work that Christ’s Hope is doing in Africa.
The average cost to go on a vision trip is $3,500. We recommend that you raise support for this trip by sending letters to family, friends, and loved ones asking them to help support through prayer and funding. The Lord works in incredible ways, and He has continually blessed the people looking to raise funds for our trips. Praise the Lord!
If you have been contemplating, going on a trip to Africa with Christ’s Hope then this is your chance! Please consider joining us for this life-altering experience.
