Zambia is an impoverished Christian nation located in South Central Africa. The climate is tropical, but due to its elevation, it is dry and arid most of the year and rainy during the remaining months. The population averages around 12,935,000 people and 690,000 of those are orphaned children due to HIV/Aids, malaria, and other preventable diseases. With these kinds of numbers, Zambia is no doubt a country that deserves the attention of Missions Possible and its missionary teams.
Project Samuel is Relationships for Christ’s youth revitalization initiative in Zambia Africa. The mission of Project Samuel is to raise young leaders within their country so that they can one day change their world around them. In addition, Project Samuel operates as a community center, were men and women from the surrounding villages can come and receive skills training in both secular and religious fields of study. Project Samuel works towards bettering the lives of the children and the community around them so that one day, Zambia will be an international port for the message of Christ throughout all of Africa.
While in Zambia, Mission Possible teams will be located primarily at Project Samuel in rural Zambia, but will spend some time in Lusaka, the capital city. Most of the ministry is done within a one hour drive of the project. Accommodations are in the Missions House, a four bedroom home that sleeps up to nine team members. There will also be a couple days set aside for team members to experience an African photo safari and a trip to Victoria Falls, one of the seven natural wonders of the world. We are sure that you will enjoy every moment of your mission’s trip, so don’t hesitate to get your application in as soon as possible. Space for this trip is strictly limited.
Project Samuel is the youth revitalization ministry of Relationships for Christ Ministries, Inc serving “at risk” children around the world with ongoing projects in the nations of Zambia, Africa and Nicaragua, Central America. At Project Samuel we seek to impact the lives of children trapped and oppressed through poverty, abuse, and abandonment by ministering to the “complete” child: Body, Mind and Spirit.
Project Samuel consist of permanent housing facilities for orphan care, educational and training facilities, as well as clinic and hospice facilities for children with terminal illnesses including AIDS. In addition to permanent facilities, Project Samuel takes its programs to the schools and villages in the countries we serve, helping children through educational programs, discipleship and mentor programs, youth and sports programs, and job training programs.
While in Nicaragua, Mission Possible Teams will be staying at a local hotel in the capital city of Managua, about 30 minutes away from Project Samuel Latin America, a youth revitalization program in Guanacastillo. There will be several different ministry opportunities available on this trip such as: children Bible study programs, English classes, leadership classes, evangelistic outreaches, feeding programs for at risk children, and building and development of the site. Some teams choose to participate in a day of fun and sightseeing. Some of the activities available are: an active volcano, shopping in the traditional market, shopping for pottery in the mountain village of San Juan de Oriente, or a side trip to the beach at San Juan Del.
God is doing a great work in Colombia. It has the fastest growing evangelical community in the western hemisphere. But amongst this bustling city is a population that is often overlooked, the orphan, with over 70 orphanages in Bogotá alone. These children are lonely and love starved and their hearts are open to Jesus Christ.
Bogotá, is the capital, and largest city, of Colombia. Bogotá is the most populous city in the country, with an estimated 7,304,384 inhabitants as of 2009. Bogotá and its metropolitan area, which includes municipalities such as Chía, Cota, Soacha, Cajicá and La Calera, had an estimated population of 8,566,926 in 2009.
While in Colombia, Mission Possible Teams will be staying in a local hotel in/or around Bogota, the capital of Colombia. The city is set in a high mountain plateau at 8500 ft. elevation with beautiful mountains surrounding it. In Colombia we have partnered with Pastor Carlos “AC Jordan” Orozco and his ministry, Fundacion Mundial Pide Vida, as well as several other foundations that serve at risk children. Teams will have the opportunity to evangelize and build lasting friendships with orphans and street children of all ages in Soacha and minister in churches and conferences. There will also be time set aside for sight seeing and souvenir shopping in the nearby mountain villages.
Do you enjoy working with kids and young people? Do you desire to help the poor and share the gospel in practical ways? Are you willing to get out of your comfort zone? If that describes you, you’re the kind of person we need on a Mission Possible team to Bogota, Colombia!
Jamaica is an island in the Caribbean, with beautiful beaches, targeted by many tourists throughout the year. However, behind those beaches we find an island greatly darkened by spiritual and physical poverty. The country is experiencing a decline in employment and the minimum wage in Jamaica doesn’t even cover the necessities; so even those that are working are still greatly impacted by the poverty. They are also experiencing a breakdown in the family structure and many children are left in single parent homes. These factors, along with others, have resulted in many locals fighting depression, resorting to violence and sexual promiscuity, and others becoming entangled into the world of narcotics.
While in Jamaica, Mission Possible teams will be staying at a local hotel near the site of Pastor Carolyn Jolley’s church and community center. We have partnered with Pastor Jolley and her ministry, Christ Temple Evangelistic Center in Ocho Rios, Jamaica to reach out to the at-risk children and families caught in poverty. The ministry here focuses on, but not exclusively, bringing up a generation that can walk in purpose and victory and bring Jamaica out of the bondage it is now experiencing. There will be opportunities for street ministry, evangelism, discipleship, and leadership classes to all ages and genders. The team will also get to experience a day of fun in the local culture and sight seeing including opportunities to zip line through the forest canopy ad visit world famous Dunn’s River falls.
