God is not looking for capable hands, He’s looking for available ones.

Mission Trip 2007 - By Kathy Stoller

No special talent is required to make a significant impact on children... just a loving compassion for kids! Even so, many service opportunities exist for people that are not directly involved with children, such as construction, painting, sewing, farming, teaching, church ministry, community outreach, medical services, etc.

If you would like to join an existing team for a mission trip, serve as a short-term missionary or lead your own team to our project in Ethiopia, then we can help. Please call or write for more information.

Visiting Ethiopia is like stepping back in time to a culture that is nearly as primitive as it was when Jesus walked the earth some 2,000 years ago. It is a rare opportunity to see first-hand what life was like so long ago, while ministering and touching the lives of people in need.

Our mission at Blessing the Children is to ensure that you and your team have a successful mission trip. Your team will work closely with our staff of social workers in Ethiopia, where you will form lasting one-on-one relationships, both socially and spiritually. As your team returns for future trips, you will be able to continue developing these relationships and see God work through you in their lives.

Bring Your Own Team

We invite you to bring your team to Ethiopia, Africa. If your team is planning a mission trip and you’re expecting ten or more, please contact us to set up your group’s trip dates - or simply fill out the Group Application and we will contact to confirm dates and help you begin planning.
