Orchard: Africa is a non-profit organization restoring hope to the vulnerable by creating sustainable change in rural African villages.

Victory Lutheran has sent eight teams to South Africa under the auspices of Orchard: Africa, a Christian non-profit established twenty-five years ago by South Africans (learn more at  thttps://www.orchardafrica.org/about-us/) .  In 2018 Victory sent 15 people on this trip, ranging in age from 15 to 80+.  We always work through a local congregation that has been established and staffed by Orchard: Africa.  Mission teams stay in a modern, safe, guest house in Cape Town and travel daily by van, always accompanied by Orchard: Africa staff, to Khayelitsha, a township of 3 mission people on the edge of Cape Town.  In 2018 we taught local residents how to create horizontal, hanging, homestead gardens in order to grow their own food in an area that has little arable land.  Approximate cost is $3,500; a $200 non-refundable deposit is required to hold your reservation.  Much more information will be provided upon request and at pre-trip meetings.  Contact Pastor Lien with questions.

Thank you to all who brought joy to a child’s heart through Operation Christmas Child in 2017.
360 boxes were collected!

A small shoebox can have a big impact. What goes into the box is fun, but what comes out of it is eternal. Be a part of changing children’s lives all over the world in Jesus’ Name through the power of a simple gift with Operation Christmas Child.

Over the past 20 years, Samaritan’s Purse has delivered over 100 million shoebox gifts packed by caring people like you to hurting children around the world. Pray that millions more children will experience the love of Jesus Christ through these simple gifts.
