Make a difference.

Go, experience and serve.

“I flew to Africa praying that God would use me to touch a few lives there, but soon realized that He used the people of Africa to transform mine.  Through their warm welcomes, bright smiles, cheerful singing, joy in all situations, and complete trust in God, they brought light into our lives.  God doesn’t call the qualified, but He qualifies the called.  Once you make yourself available to Him, He will use you to light the world with His love.”

– Tanya Chandran, WOW Mission Trip Participant

Each trip and team is somewhat different depending on the needs in Africa and the skills, abilities and interests of team members.
