SOUTH AFRICA //
52 PackYourBags students have experienced this beautiful country. Year after year God is faithful to change hearts and lives while we are here. There is such a hunger and thirst for the Gospel in this country. The campus of Africa School of Missions is our home base for a majority of the trip. From there, we partner with local groups and ministries to reach the surrounding communities. There is a great need for youth and children's ministry. We have the unique opportunity to share the Gospel in schools, churches, youth groups, communities, and homes. We are eager to respond to the need in practical ways and to show God's love to this generation.
After experiencing the beauty of Africa, take the trip of a lifetime to the Holy Land of Israel! Walk in the footsteps of Christ and experience the sites of the Bible - the Galilee region, the Negev Desert, Nazareth, and Jerusalem. Raft the Jordan River, sleep in the desert, ride camels, walk the Via Dolorosa, enjoy a sunrise on the Sea of Galilee, collect seashells from the Mediterranean Sea, enjoy local food, and so so much more! Watch the Bible come alive!
NATIVE AMERICAN RESERVATION, USA //
Immerse yourself into a different world within your own country! Travel to a Native American Reservation in the Midwest region. We partner with organizations that have established ministries in these communities. Be exposed to the Spirit of God moving on these reservations and see how compassion ministry can impact people for the Kingdom. Focusing on unity and servanthood to break down the cross-cultural barriers, we rely on the power of God to restore relationships.
INNER CITY, USA //
Some of the greatest need can be found in the inner cities. There is vast secularism, diverse religions, poverty, and rampant drug and sex trafficking. In contrast, you will also find stunning skyscrapers, the hustle of city life, and urban culture. Among all this, there are ministries standing strong and obedient to God's Word and mission. We work alongside these ministries, serving in practical ways - street evangelism, door-to-door ministry, children's ministry, feeding programs, ministry to Muslims, and more.
