Do you have a vision for an African adventure?
In 1996 Deb Snell moved to Africa. Deb had been on mission trips through her church and had traveled to Central and South America, Africa, China, and Mexico. She was the chair of the Mission Board at her home church in Minnesota. She knew that there is no substitute for actually going - seeing the desperate poverty on television, reading about it in newspapers is not the same. That, along with experiencing the amazing beauty of God's creation in the endless Savannah of the Masai Mara, the rain forests, the endless skies and mountains, the African wildlife and diversity of culture in the 53 tribes is incredibly life changing.
In her years since moving to Kenya, in addition to hosting many local and international visitors who wish to see Africa on safaris, she has also recruited teachers and short term mission teams to come and do various projects - installing rain harvesting on roofs, building, renovating, teaching in high schools and nursery schools, conducting sports clinics, visiting self-help women's groups, and for people to be satisfied with also being a ministry of presence with others.
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.
