Little Samaritan Mission Dental | April 21 – 29
Leader: Sue Leach
A team of dental professionals and ministry workers will provide free dental care in schools in poor, rural Moldovan villages. While the dentists work, the ministry team will present a gospel message to children and teachers in the public schools where we work. What a great opportunity to serve both physical and spiritual needs!
Life Giving Water | June 29 – July 8
Leader: Craig Miller
Life Giving Water International will receive a ministry team in the Andes Mountains of Ecuador to help the 120 families in the rural Kichwa community of Sanancahuan build their water system. The team will be staying in rustic quarters in the community at an altitude of over 11,000 feet, working mornings on building the water system, and afternoons holding a Vacation Bible school event for the children. Bruce & Cherith Rydbeck, long-time Grace Chapel missionaries living in Ecuador will host the team.
Hope for the Children of Haiti | July 27 – August 5
Leader: Carrie Tibbles
This summer we will be traveling to Haiti to partner with Hope for the Children of Haiti, an orphanage and school in Port-a-Prince. While there we will have a wonderful opportunity to connect with the 100 children who live there and the staff that care for them. We will be doing their routine yearly health screens, vaccinations, and medical physicals. We will do a number of facility improvement projects including ensuring the water supply remains clean and healthy. The team will also do a vacation bible school with the kids and community building activities to encourage and support the staff.
Jesus Savior Church Deaf Ministry | July 20 – August 4
Leader: Buddy Shephard
Little Samaritan Mission Face of a Child | October 20 – 29
Leader: Sue Leach
Join the Face of a Child team for our 15th year of sharing the gospel and distributing packages of school supplies, clothing and toiletries to at-risk children in Moldovan villages. A heart for the poor, love of children, and a desire to share God’s amazing love are the only requirements for this trip. It is a heart-warming and life-changing experience.
World Servants | August 6 – 12
Leader: Don Vinh and Loretta Chou
Our team of families will be traveling to Tecate, Mexico, just an hour over the border from San Diego. We will be serving the Rancho San Juan Bosco Orphanage where many of the boys come from abusive homes or who were living on the streets. We will be working together on construction and repair work for the orphanage, and spending quality time and sharing Christ's love with the boys who reside there. This is an introductory CCLE trip for families with children age 8 and up.
Go beyond the current political debate around refugee resettlement and learn from people at the source of the crisis. The Church is alive and well in Jordan, and stepping up in incredible ways. Participants will receive cultural orientation and learn about the history of conflicts in the region. We will visit with families and hear their stories. There will be opportunities to assist with children's programming and other ongoing ministries, depending on the makeup and interests of the group. This trip will be highly relational and participants will be practicing ministry of presence. Come prepared to be stretched and amazed at what God is doing! Then consider applying this knowledge in service to and with refugees who have made their way to greater Boston. Recommended for families with children ages 14 and up.
