Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
If this simple quote resonates with you, it’s probably because you have a heart of compassion and a desire for justice. We all want to live a life of significance, but so much of what fills our time on a daily basis just seems somewhat trivial. And while we are called to be faithful in the little things, sometimes God asks us to take a big step of faith.
Perhaps for you, that big step is taking a short term trip to Africa with Compassion Corps. If that’s the case. we have good news!…
For just a few more days, we are accepting applications for this summer’s Uganda trip (July 23rd to August 8th).
Uganda is a beautiful country, full of joyful, generous people. It’s known as the “Pearl of Africa.” Yet, it is considered one of the world’s sickest places and every day in this country, children die from preventable causes – simple dehydration, diarrhea, and uncontrolled fever.
People of all ages are susceptible to malaria and basic food and water borne illnesses.
This year, Compassion Corps is taking a two week, multi-faceted short-term team to Uganda in order to:
The first week the team will run a mobile clinic in the Kampala area and then will travel northward to the vicinity of Lira for several days of clinics, women’s health classes, and work with orphans and village children.
The second week will be spent in the western region of Kasese, where there will be teacher training workshops & children’s activities, as well as clinics for school children and orphans.
En route to Kasese, the trip will include a memorable boat ride on the Nile and a delightful safari through Murchison Falls National Park.
A chance to serve.
The adventure of a lifetime.
A life-changing experience.
