Summer Missions

Interested in traveling to Kenya and working alongside us at the Limuru Children’s Centre, Pat’s Feeding Program, and other ministries?

Each year, Global Connections organizes a Kenyan mission trip during the summer (usually late June through late July). The trip leaders spend approximately four weeks in Kenya supporting the Global Connections ministries.

We also highly recommend enjoying the beauty of God’s creation in Kenya through a one or two night photo safari while you are in the country, and the Global Connections team can help arrange that.

This trip will have a life-changing impact on you and on our partners in Kenya. We frequently have single adults as well as entire families on our trips.

Global Connections Trip Team Mission Statement:

Our mission is to offer encouragement, support, and love
to those in need by sharing our gifts and getting involved
as we put our own lives back into perspective.

Trip Reflections

“I love spending my days at LCC – we have read books upon books, colored, sung songs about Jesus, played basketball, played numerous games in the play yard, cooked dinners, and the list really could keep going. I love to watch the way these kids talk about their faith and what God has done for them. Thank you, Lord, for showing me your love through the eyes of these precious children.”
– Jenny Moorer
“Our first full day in Limuru I was lucky enough to be chosen to work at the LCC Baby Home. I didn’t know what to expect but I knew beautiful babies awaited me! That day I saw love in a new way. Love that was not words, but touch and through eye contact. Love that day was not a new toy, love was being held for 3 hours when Ben probably hadn’t really been held in 3 days. That day I felt love from a child I’d never met before and can only sit up at night and think about.”
– Betsy Reed Guerry
“I have NEVER seen such poverty. No words to describe it! Yet I have never seen such grateful, loving and thoughtful children at the orphanage. I feel like my role was just to show the love of Jesus to the children.”
– Sheila Creekmore

More Details

Trip participants may choose their own trip dates depending on their schedules. Each year, we have team members spend anywhere between 7 and 28 days working with us in Kenya.

The cost of the trip is quite reasonable as it only includes actual expenses and no overhead, administrative costs, or profit for the organization.
