Orchard: Africa is a non-profit organization restoring hope to the vulnerable by creating sustainable change in rural African villages.
ITEMS NEEDED FOR MISSION TRIP
Victory’s mission team will be assembling 100 health kits to take to Africa. Currently, we need washcloths, toothbrushes and bars of soap. For the vertical farming program, we need old blue jeans and large suitcases to carry the supplies. (Suitcases will stay in South Africa.)
A FEW SPECIFICS ABOUT OUR MISSION…
DATES OF TRAVEL: August 23-September 3, 2018
Our trip is hosted by Orchard: Africa (orchardafrica.org), an organization started by two white South Africans 25 years ago. We will be working in Khayelitsha, a township of 2.2 million people outside Cape Town.
We will be staying at a guest house owned by Orchard: Africa that has modern amenities. We will board a van each day to drive approximately 20 minutes to the site of the church/mission that Victory supports.
We will be running a 5-day agriculture course that will empower community delegates to grow their own organic gardens in limited spaces. Orchard: Africa is passionate about protecting the vulnerable and are committed to sustainable, holistic solutions. That is why the Church is their platform, programs are their tools, and hope in Christ is their message.
Airfare to and from South Africa is approximately $1,600/person. All on-ground costs (meals, program fees, housing and local transportation) are approximately $1,500. A $200 non-refundable deposit due by April 30, 2018.
Optional safari for those interested. Approximate cost for 3-days, 2-nights, all-inclusive is $650. Some travelers are planning on spending additional time in South Africa or Europe.
Tickets may be purchased before and after church or from the church office. Questions or to register, talk to Pastor Steve or Joanne Lien, our trip hosts.
Operation Christmas Child: “Shoebox Ministry”
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.
