One of the words that God shared with us the first time we ever prayed as a budding team was “restoring families.” Nearly every time we pray, restoration and families are a common theme. As we’ve planned strategically to follow through on all that God is doing, one of the ways that we can reach whole families is by offering fun-filled family camps to whole communities. Most of these are unreached people groups. However, what if the message that’s on God’s heart could also reach the church? What if the believers were a model of families being restored and a role model for their relatives and villages? Our team goes regularly into one of the areas most saturated by human trafficking in a bordering nation, and we share with local pastors and their wives about human trafficking – what it is, how it happens, and who to contact when they suspect it. For them, they are already directly affected in one way or another. We offer marriage seminars, parenting seminars, talking about their value as an individual and who they are in Christ. They then take these messages back to their villages who are also directly affected. The areas we go to are known for drugs, trafficking, and staggering HIV+ population. But here comes Jesus, loving unconditionally.
For each camp, we need approximately $400 to cover food for the local pastors for 3 days, transportation, and housing for a team of locals that will accompany our team. If you’d like to help us cover this cost, please contact us!
