Zambia/Kenya

Zambia Mission Trip

Imagine trying to cross a flooded river to get to school on the other side—without a bridge! This is a reality that thousands of children in Africa face every day.

After your training at the Lord’s Boot Camp, you bus to the Orlando International Airport for a flight to London, England via Miami. A connecting flight from London crosses the Mediterranean SeaSahara Desert and the Equator before arriving in Nairobi, Kenya. Your final flight takes you to Lusaka, Zambia.

From the airport, your Zambia mission trip experience continues on a five-hour bus ride to the Teen Missions in Zambia Bible, Missionary & Work Training Center in Ndola. From there, you will take a three-hour ride into the heart of the African bush. Your project is to build a much-needed bridge for a village that is not accessible during the rainy season.

2012 Zambia Water Filter Trip at Victoria Falls

With this bridge, children will be able to get to school and adults will be able to get medical help for their families. You will also minister to the village by playing with the orphans and sharing the Gospel message. Visiting Victoria Falls, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, will be a highlight of your summer. You will have the opportunity to barter for wood carvings, soapstone, drums and national dress.

  35. Hey,
    My name is Matthew McClure. I live in Southern Indiana and go to college at Vincennes University. I am very interested on going to a mission trip to Africa/ South Africa. I am majoring in Culinary arts, and I will finish in Spring 2013. I would love to go on a mission trip over there or even work in the mission field over there. I have a heart for missions and first had a calling to Africa at CIY 2010. The mission was ActiveWater in Zambia. I looked on the CIY Engage and saw that this mission went to Zambia. I checked out the website and here I am. I have no idea on where GOD is calling me, so I do not where I will end up after I graduate. Can you get back to me on information on when the trips are and the average cost of a mission trip over to Africa/ South Africa. Thank you so much for everything you do in the world.
    Thanks,
    Matthew McClure

  36. Kendra – TMI sends you a list of fundraising ideas, and you get support letters to send to your relatives, church family, and friends. My siblings and I have done five trips with TMI and God has provided for us every time. Don’t let fear of trying to raise all that money hold you back! God has the money and he’s waiting on your faith. Go for it – it’ll change your life!
