Sierra Leone Service Trip

Grace Church will be taking a group to Moribatown, Sierra Leone to work in the orphanage and church plants in the area. Most of our time on this trip will be spent working on various projects in the orphanage, getting to know the kids, visiting neighboring villages, and helping out local church plants. We also try to customize our trips based on the various skills and gifts of those going on the trip so projects could vary.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN ON THIS TRIP?

The first and last day(s) will be spent travelling. Once we arrive in Africa, we will be spending the night in Freetown and then driving to Moribatown the next day (6 hour drive) to visit the children’s home. The following few days will be spent visiting neighboring villages, helping out the church plants, and working on various projects in the orphanages. Please keep in mind it will be hot and humid, and there will be a lot of travel involved, but, with the potential to change your life.
