About Africa

Zimbabwe Africa is home not only to one of the 7 Natural wonders of the World (Victoria Falls), the big 5 animals (Elephant, Lion, Cape Buffalo, Leopard, Rhinoceros), but also home to 16.5 million people that need the Savior! 70% of the people are below the poverty line, making Zimbabwe one of the poorest countries in the world. On this project we will be aiding the local pastors perform outreach opportunities throughout the local community and supplying basic needs like food and water, while sharing the Hope of the Gospel. *Participants need to be 16+ with mission trip experience, and be physically and spiritually prepared for a more challenging environment.
