SOUTH AFRICA MISSIONS TRIP July 15 -28, 2013
Team Application
For the last 10 years, GAP Community has been investing in the lives of women and youth in South Africa. The relationship has spurred freedom, empowerment, and hope. We are committed to continue to sow into the lives of the people there as a tangible expression God’s love and so that love may continue to be sown into others around them. “Where the spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.” Come join us in the privilege of being in relationship with this precious community. You were made to experience and create freedom through the work of God’s spirit in and around us! On our next trip, we will be creating opportunities for our South African Trainers to train the youth. We will work with both high school and junior high school age students by serving as team members for after school workshops. In addition, we’ll work on physical projects at Legacy Center, serve food to the children on the street, and support families in the community through food donations, hosting community meetings and creating a ‘test and treat’ program for HIV/AIDs infected individuals. __________________________________________________________________________ TEAM MEMBER CRITERIA We are taking a maximum of 10 people to South Africa.
