Short-term Mission Trip
During the month of September a team of 7 from New Mercy Community Church from Hackensack, New Jersey joined us in La Guajira Colombia for a ten dayshort-term mission trip.
We served 7 local churches in La Guajira through eye clinics, installing water filtration systems, children’s bible school, and construction.
The New Mercy team spent a special time of bonding and sharing with the youth at Zion Church where they shared life experiences, prayed and encouraged the youth to live a life dedicated to love and serve Christ and His kingdom.
New Mercy Community Church has partnered with Bread of Hope to bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to the unreached Wayuu. They will be focusing on empowering local churches through training and investing in the Christian Wayuu youth.
Mission trip Testimony
“I have been on many mission trips before and on all of them
,I always felt like just another foreigner coming to “help” the locals. This trip was such a blessing because it was the first one on which I didn’t feel like an outsider; instead, I felt like I was an actual member of the Wayuu community. It was so amazing to work ALONGSIDE (not just for) the Wayuu to bless and serve each other as one big family!”
