WHERE:  Los Angeles, Ca. 

TRIP DATES:  July 13 - 21, 2019 (with optional add-on days July 22 & 23)

OUR MISSION is to work alongside our GCI Los Angeles church to run a day camp for children 6 – 12 years old. Participants in this mission can help by leading a group of children from one activity to the next or by leading an activity such as games, crafts, Bible lesson or songs. If you have a special skill that children might like to learn, we’d love to hear about it. 

 

We will also visit “Poverty Encounter” where we will Journey into the lives of children living in poverty around the globe in a multi-sensory, interactive environment. Hear their stories, explore their world, and share their dreams.  Learn to respond biblically, taking action to make a difference, offering help and hope to those who are suffering. This Encounter experience includes a service opportunity.  

 

On Tuesday 23rd as an optional extra free day we will cook for and feed lunch to 50 - 100 homeless people living on the San Gabriel Riverbed.

 

MEALS

To make the trip more interesting and to add an international flavor, each day we have a meal from another country and learn about the culture of that country.  Each participant gets to choose a country and share about that culture.

 

ACCOMMODATION

We will be sleeping on inflatable mattresses, on the floor.  Separate rooms for girls and guys. Sorry, but we do not have separate accommodation for married couples.
