Take A Trip With Purpose

Building on a 7 year partnership, we are leading a team to show Jesus to Latin America through the local church. Though predominantly Catholic, most people in Latin America do not go to church anywhere. More importantly, most of the population have a tainted representation of Christianity and what it means to have a personal relationship with Christ. We want to repaint the face of Christianity by showing the true love of Jesus Christ.



TRIP SUMMARY

Our Purpose

The local church is the hope of the world. That is why we are partnering with Vida Abundante to support the work they are already doing in their community. We plan to leverage our relationships in the community to be most effective in our outreach in bringing the message of the gospel.
