Joining a Larger Group

Posted by 3D-Outreach on 9 May 2011

We have met with a number of groups who are organizing short-term mission trips that you are able to join in. To some level, they can be seen as slightly bigger than the average short-term mission trip, and are all of a similar nature ie they are all outside South Africa, may cost a little more than the average missions trip, but can be joined no matter where in the world you are reading about this. Please be in touch with us if you are interested to join or just want to get more details: –

1. Russia – orphanage focus

For the past few years there has been a group that heads off to Russia to partner with churches in Russia in order to organise Christmas parties for various orphanages during December. They raise funds, purchase personalised gifts for the children, individually wrap the gifts and go around to five orphanages that they have built a relationship with to host a party. In this process, they have opportunities to give a child hope in a seemingly hopeless situation, give a child love in a seemingly love-less situation, and introduce the real reason for the season. Costs and exact dates to be announced.

2. Greece – Bible distribution focus

Greece may be the home to the origins of the Gospel, but finds itself in a desperately secular environment in modern times. A mission organisation has stepped up to this mark, desiring to place a contemporary Bible back into the hands of the local Greek inhabitant. This trip will be from July 21st to the morning of July 28th, at a cost of about 415€ per person excluding flights.

3. Mozambique – sports ministry focus

Since the Soccer World Cup 2010, sports has become great tool for ministry. In many major sports events around the world, it is a non-threatening method to reach out to those attending, the sportsmen / women, and local communities through word and deed. The next such major event in Africa is the ‘All Africa Games’, which occurs from the 3rd – 18th September 2011. It is estimated that there will be about 6000 – 8000 athletes and officials participating alone. There is great need in serving the local organising committee as a volunteer, and then partnering with local churches and Christian organisations.
