Atlanta, GA, April 09, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Georgia Based LifeWalk Mission International will be traveling to Nairobi, Kenya next week for its first of three scheduled Christian short-term mission trips this year. Executive Director Jerry Warren will be leading the team to work in the outlying areas of Nairobi.
Because of the recent massacre that caught world-wide attention in the media, Jerry is not too concerned with safety or security matters. “During our time there,” he says, “we want to encourage and bring hope to a community that will be in mourning for the upcoming months ahead.” Religion in Kenya is predominately Christian representing some 82.5% of the population. Most of the mission work will be in the urban area of Nairobi.
After the Kenya team completes their mission work, they will spend a couple of days visiting a land-safari near the city of Nakuru, which is two hours north of Nairobi.
The next short-term mission trips will take place in the summer of this year. Teams will be mobilized to travel in the country of Jamaica and Haiti - both tropical Caribbean islands located in the western hemisphere. For 2016, the ministry is hopeful to include an additional short-term mission trip to the country of India. As the ministry opens additional mission trips, they are discovering more and more individuals opting to use their vacation time for something more meaningful - a chance to give back to the community.
LifeWalk Mission International is currently working with key U.S.-based partners to provide beneficial services to the citizens in each of the countries they will visit this year.
On June 1st, the ministry will release a new slate of short-term mission travels for 2016. The organization is open to "customize" short-term mission trips for interested church ministries or educational institutions seeking to send their constituents on the field where they currently serve.
