We are excited to announce that Arun Church and Links International are planning two Mission Trips this year! Read below for more details.
La Guajira, Colombia. Jun-Jul 2020 TBC
This trip will be working with In Ministry to Children (IMC) who work to rescue and support children at high risk. Many of the children they support are rescued from the streets, exploitation or are living in communities with great needs. Links has partnered with IMC for close to 25 years in La Guajira (the Desert region of Colombia) and we have helped with clean water projects, leadership development and some initial MED training. The main focus of this trip will be to run a playscheme for children from the Wayuu tribe. This will involve games, teaching and music at a retreat centre in Riohacha on the northern coast of Colombia.
We need team members with experience or willingness to get involved with church ministry, teaching, music, youth and children’s work or community development. Spanish speaking skills would also be very handy but not essential as there will always be translators on hand. The cost for the trip will be around £1,400.
Texas, USA. Oct-Nov 2020
This trip is to connect with two churches where we have strong relationships, and to serve their ongoing community programmes:
- The Abbey Church in Dallas Fort Worth – this church have been close friends for many years, led by Paul and Perrianne Brownback. The team will be connecting with a specific halloween season outreach.
- Church On The Rock in Lubbock – this church have supported us with a team at our kids summer playscheme for a number of years. Pastor Jacki White is a good friend of Norman and Grace Barnes. They have many inspiring community outreach programmes from The Dream Centre and we will be getting involved in a number of these, and their church services.
We need team members with experience or willingness to get involved with church and outreach activities, children’s ministry and/or community development. But the most important requirement is a teachable attitude, humble heart and willingness to show God’s love to the people you come in contact with. Participants must be flexible and adaptable. The cost for the trip will be around £1,800.
