East AsiaJuly 15-26, 2020
Trip Cost: $2300-$2600 + airfare + visa if needed
We are so glad you have an interest in East Asia! This particular team has been going to the very same place since 2014 and we protect it, therefore this description is a little vague. What we want you to know about this trip is that it is a gift, it is a little piece of beauty in a place you might not think to look. Your Father is doing amazing work here. It is a small orphanage, maybe about 20-25 children mostly boys and very rarely are there infants. So if you are specifically seeking a trip where you can hold babies this is not that trip. However, you will find some amazing children and staff who are very much worth getting to know!
This trip is also not just about what we do during the day with the kids but our time with the locals at night in the streets where MANY people come out every night to dance, sing, jump rope, and ride scooters. A lot of times we will join them and even play the Chicken Dance, Macarena, or Cupid Shuffle!
A third thread to this is your team members. We like to function as a “body” which means we will all learn to love each other and work with each other all for Him. We take pre trip preparation very seriously and do a lot on the front end before we go to try to be as close as possible. It becomes a bit of a part time job! But, it can only be as good as what you put in to it. Are you ready to put in the work? To allow Him to mold you and make you into something different? You will never be the same once you say yes!
