HAITI & ZAMBIA
We believe in building lasting, consistent relationships and sowing into ministries that serve with integrity. It was with that mindset we bagan to partner with Love A Child in Fond Parisien, Haiti in 2015 and Reaching A Generation in the Republic of Zambia in 2016.
Since then, we have had the opportunity to host 7 trips to serve alongside the teams at LAC and RAG. On those trips, we have gotten to sow into the lives of hundreds with the truth of the Gospel, food, and clothing. Through our partners, families, and teams, God has provided the funding for us to build 18 water wells. This is just the beginning.
*Due to the ongoing civil unrest, we are very sad that we will not be taking a team to serve in Haiti in 2019. Our partners at Love A Child have had to cancel all their mission trips this year because they cannot assure the safety of the volunteers coming to the country. Please pray for the people of Haiti and for the staff of Love A Child. They have had to stop taking trips up into the mountains because driving on the roads is not safe. The people of Haiti are desperate, given that gas prices have skyrocketed and electricity has been extremely limited. We hope to be able to serve with them in 2020.

Reaching a Generation || August 20-31 2019
We are excited to return to Sioma, Zambia to help build water wells for the villages in that Western Province. The team is hoping to help build 4 wells. While in country we will also work with the young girls at the Imagine Hope Centers and participate in some of the Children’s Church Outreaches that are held throughout the week.
The team will depart from their home cities and meet in Atlanta and fly together to Johannesburg, South Africa where we overnight. The next day we continue on to Livingstone, Zambia and then drive to Sioma.
Total trip cost is approximately $4200 (depending on your airfare). This cost includes all in-country transportation, accommodations, all food in Zambia, evacuation insurance, team supplies, team T-shirt and Zambia Visa. It does not include Passport fees, vaccinations, food at any airport or personal souvenirs.

Haiti, Love A Child Inc. || May 19-25 2018
This year we had the opportunity to visit 4 different villages, spend time with the children at the LAC orphanage, and love on families in mountain villages who rarely see visitors. We were blessed to get to baptize one of our team members in the lake that borders one of Love A Child’s oldest villages. It was incredible to see the village children gather around to be a part of that moment - something that we will not soon forget. Despite the bleak news that pours out of Haiti on a regular basis, God is moving in a powerful way on this tiny island nation. His Word is bearing fruit in people’s lives, and we are encouraged by what Love A Child is doing in their country.
Zambia, Reaching a Generation || June 13-24 2018
Reaching A Generation works tirelessly to bring clean, accessible drinking water to different villages as they share the good news of the Gospel through children’s churches and feeding programs. This year, support was raised to fund five water wells. One of these wells was funded through one of our partner organizations, Breaking Chains International. Our team faced disappointment when the drill rig experienced mechanical issues, but that gave us the opportunity to connect more with the kids in each village. We also had the opportunity to witness the first graduating class of 14 girls at the Imagine Hope Center - a 6-month leadership program where young women study the Word, learn valuable skills that will help them make money in the future, and focus on their school studies so that they can eventually go on to change their generation and their nation. What a testimony to RAG’s vision to see young lives be changed forever for His Kingdom.
