Do you have a vision for an African adventure?
In 1996 Greg and Deb Snell joined International Christian Ministries and moved to Africa. Greg had been the Minister of Missions at a large Congregational church in Minnesota and Deb was the chair of the Mission Board. They both knew after having taken short term mission teams to developing countries in Africa and Central America, that there is no substitute for actually going. Seeing the desperate poverty on television, reading about it in newspapers is not the same. Nor is seeing the amazing beauty of God's creation in the endless savannahs of the Masai Mara, the rainforests, the endless skies and mountains, and of course the African wildlife and diversity of culture in the 53 tribes.
In the 16 years since then Greg and Deb have recruited teachers and short term mission teams to come and do various projects - installing rain harvesting on roofs, building, renovating, teaching theology students at ICM, in high schools and nursery schools, conducting sports clinics, establishing Moms in Touch, visiting self-help women's groups, and just to be a presence. Whatever your interest, safaris and short term teams are carefully and personally arranged. Special interest safaris in areas like birding, animal life and marine life, cultural visits, environment and conservation projects, even golf can be arranged as well. And of course, shopping in the Masai Markets!
So if you have a desire to see Africa come on a VisionVenture! See what will stir your heart beyond the television set and newspapers. Make it personal. Meet people. Hear their stories and feel their incredible hospitality. Teach! Smell nature. Sleep under the stars. Develop a partnership where you can make a difference. Come as a learner. Go home and show your pictures, write your own stories, get involved and we promise you...your life will never be the same! Maybe you will bring people to capture the essence of what you learned, but for sure, we bet it will not be your last visit to this incredible country.
