The Story

The Value of Presence:

How are you? Like really, how are you? 

As a team, we get to walk alongside people from all over the world and one of the themes we’ve been hearing a lot lately is that life is not easy. Between economic uncertainty, social and political tensions, and global conflicts and instability, there are plenty of challenges to keep us busy.

As we struggle for progress around the world, we’re reminded of the immense value of shared moments and cherished experiences. It can be easy to forget the beautiful simplicity of being present with one another. That’s why we’re inviting you and even challenging you to consider joining us on a trip this year. 

Our trips are an incredible opportunity to have the experience of a lifetime, build meaningful relationships with our partners, meet the people your generosity is directly impacting, and tour the incredible beauty and culture of the countries we work in. Our trips are packed full of adventure, connection, learning, rest and reflection, and memories that will last a lifetime. From breathtaking landscapes to vibrant cultures and transformative ministry, our trips are back in full force, and the only thing missing is you.
