We will come alongside our CHAP Uganda partners, as they continue to undertake a number of activities and programs, addressing the physical and spiritual well-being of individuals, families and small communities that deal with HIV/AIDS, malaria, malnutrition and a variety of other challenges. Opportunities to serve include assisting with health clinics, home visitations, church services, classroom visits – both elementary and senior high as well as interacting with various community leaders. Please note that this is NOT a medical team, so medical expertise is not a requirement, but of course those with a medical background are welcome to be part of the team and your experience will be a benefit during the medical clinics. Your presence on this team will strengthen the long-term relationship our church has with IN Uganda and the community of Buikwe and you will be a gift to those you meet.

This trip offers the opportunity to work alongside CrossRoads missionaries Andrew and Melissa Fletcher as they run a Family Refugee Camp in Porto Astro, Greece.

Refugees that are made up of many family units are invited to the Porto Astro camp facilities for 5 days where they are shown the Love of Christ. They will go through a curriculum called "Genesis to Jesus" where they are confronted with the question “Who is Jesus?”. The whole camp for them is sponsored so they are able to leave the chaos of Athens and come to a place of peace, take time to be refreshed, as well as have the opportunity to ask questions about God, Jesus, and Faith.

As this camp is high energy, high intensity, it requires people of great stamina and heart to serve. The daily needs of facilitating this operation are cleaning bathrooms, salad prep/kitchen help, and meal cleanup, there will be opportunities to connect with campers sharing meals, assisting with sports activities, and swimming (Time permitting).

*Life Guards, Doctors, Nurses, Farsi Speakers would be welcome in addition to the service team (but still prepared to assist with service team when needed)*
