3-Month South Africa IMMERSION
- Aug 26 2019 - Nov 8 2019
- Pretoria, ZA
- Experience Mission
Experience three unique parts of South Africa during your mission trip: the impoverished townships surrounding Pretoria and Johannesburg, the outskirts of the city where life feels Westernized and familiar, and small farming communities where resources are precious. Your picture of Africa will be challenged as you participate in Worldview Training alongside EM’s African Director and learn more about how deep-rooted, animistic beliefs still influence so much of daily life.
You’ll serve alongside local partners who have a vision to reach people in their community. Whether you’re volunteering in classrooms, visiting with residents in old age homes, sorting donations, delivering meals to neighbors, or leading VBS style programs after school, you’ll have the chance to give but also receive. Put the needs of others above your daily plans and expectations, seeing both blessing and brokenness as you serve.
