You may not know this already, Africa is an amazing place. From the people to the landscape, nothing in Africa disappoints. Join us as we build a playground for the children in the city of Kampala. Playing on a playground is an experience that not many in Uganda have had. In addition to the playground we will be building a Hope Center/Kids Hub. This is a converted shipping container that will serve as a place of outreach and ministry. Everything from sports ministry to art ministry will be hosted in this center. Come with us and see what God is doing in Uganda.

This team will get to do double-duty as they will not only get to build a playground for the precious children in West Santo Domingo, but they will take part in leading a KIDStory training as well. Children’s ministry leaders from all over the DR will be coming to be trained in Bible-storying and take what they learn back to teach others in their areas. Don’t miss out on this great week of ministry!

Quezon City, Philippines: April 4-12, 2015

This is a great opportunity to partner with the International Graduate School of Leadership in the Philippines (IGSL). IGLS is a graduate-level school in Manila, Philippines with a mission to help build up leaders for movements of transformation in Asia and other parts of the world. Serving over 250 students from 18 countries, the impact of IGSL is felt all across Asia. We have an opportunity to install a playground for the children of those studying at IGSL. We will also be reaching out into the community with a VBS program.
