International Mission Trips

Aldersgate participates in international mission trips on an annual basis. The most recent trip was from December 28, 2018 through January 8, 2019. A team of 12 traveled to the Angel House Orphanage in Tarime, Africa (Tanzania). While there, they built a greenhouse by hand, where Angel House plans to grow strawberries (something not readily available in that area), and sell them to raise money for the orphanage and school in an effort to become more self-sustaining.
 
In addition to working on the greenhouse, the team took 4 suitcases of shoes to give to the children. They spent time with the children every day. One team member worked with a small group of the children on a play that was performed on the last day. Another team member used his culinary skills to show the cooks at Angel House some different ways to use okra, as acres of okra are growing behind the orphanage. Other team members met with some older children for a bible study on character traits. As the team traveled home, they were able to debrief and relax as they drove through the Maasai Mara National Preserve and saw some amazing animals.
 
Previous trips have been to the Bahamas, Russia, Ireland, Costa Rica, the Bahamas, and Haiti. The church has also sponsored Medical Mission trips to the Dominican Republic and Cameroon. Contact Pastor Jordan or a member of the Missions Committee if you are interested in participating.
