An International Life-Changing Adventure Can Offer Meaningful Service in the Name of Christ
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to travel to a foreign country and reach out to people in need? Now you, your family or your church group can travel together to minister in a struggling country such as Peru or Haiti.
A not-for-profit 501(c) 3 organization and a well-recognized leader in the area of short-term missions, Lifetree organizes trips for groups all over the world. Lifetree trips are family-friendly so older children can join in. And no specialized medical or construction experience is necessary, so almost anybody from your family or church can flourish in this program.
Lifetree can even plan a custom trip to a country of your choice, if you already have a particular location in mind. And the impact on both the helpers and the hurting is powerful and lasting.
Kimberly, who went to Haiti in 2011, said, “This was amazing, life-changing and something everyone should do at least once. I realize now how fortunate I really am. God used this trip to open my eyes to the needs of the rest of the world.”
Jim, who traveled to Peru in 2011, reported, “This trip was amazing. It went far beyond my expectations. We saw God move in some awesome ways. Serving and interacting with the locals was great. I loved playing with the kids and building the church. I loved the opportunity to be a blessing to those less fortunate. Our group was great too—so much laughter.”
Dave Thornton, spokesperson for Lifetree Adventures, addressed pastors, youth leaders and mission directors in churches by saying, “We know you’re a leader, and you’re already busy serving God every day, so it’s our goal to lift some of the weight from your shoulders when it comes to planning an international trip. We’re experts in the locale to which you’re traveling. We’ll book you and your group into safe, high quality accommodations. We have translators to help you communicate with the local people. One of our personal tour guides will accompany you and your group every step of the way. We know the transportation system and we understand the local culture and customs. With Lifetree Adventures, you’ll never feel alone.”
Thornton also noted, “Short-term mission trips offer tremendous benefits. From gaining a better understanding of what life is like in other countries to expanding your generosity quotient, people come back transformed. Participants claim a greater appreciation for what they have at home and often return with a contagious desire to do more there. So it’s a short-term mission with a long-term impact for Christ. Truly a win-now and win-later effect.”
Lifetree Adventures has what you need to make your next mission trip simple and streamlined. Their mission is simple—to simplify yours. By doing that, Lifetree helps groups of Christians, both young and old, to unite and to be Jesus to those who need him desperately. Don’t you want to be part of something as eternally important as that?
