Mission trips

GAiN Holland - mission trips - is closely related to partners and churches around the globe. We like to 'join forces' with partners to get the max result. Our aim is to help and serve people in need and to bring them 'in person' the love and care of Jesus Christ our saviour. We would like you to share our passion - join us on a life changing mission trip!.

- Serving means: giving a part of yourself: Time, effort, money, pain and strain, emotion, love, hope and attention.
- Helpingis let them know: We haven't forgotten about you, you are priceless. And in return you will experience that you are valuable to others!
- Recieving: Love, satisfaction, a different perspective on the problems of other people, getting connected with people, get to know remarcable people in person.

To be continued: meet yourself, pushing boundaries, meet God in the adventure, to be a part of miracles that occur, let your view and perspective of the world be changed.

    

Upcoming trips:

Januari 20 - 30 2020
Greece - shoebox trip - camp Moria 2020-01
Lesvos, stay in Panagiouda - or area

Greece - shoebox trip - camp Moria 2020-01

Join us to Camp Moria, where the situation for thousands of families has become inhuman and unbearable. The camp is overcrowded, there is a shortage of sleeping places, blankets, clothing and sanitary facilities.

The refugees are close to despair and have no sight of how long it will take before they are given asylum or are transported to the mainland of Greece. Their lives lies in the hands of the authorities. There is no room for their own plans and future dreams.

And still new people are travelling to Lesvos, coming from a boat trip from Turkey, not knowing what is waiting for them in the bizarre camp Moria...

Ready to get your hands dirty?

During this trip, you will offer practical assistance to our partner organization, who tries to keep the camp liveable with man and power: hand and span services, the division of goods, help/answering of (questions of) refugees, cleaning/jobs, clothing distribution etc. So you really are standing with your feet in the mud.

During this week you will be part of the roster prepared by our partner organization. You can be classified for a day shift or an evening service, and the men can be arranged for a night shift. Of course they will try to keep the whole team together as much as possible and you are never alone on shift.

Your help is really desperately needed! So many people, so much distress, so much injustice, but by being there and serving, you make the world a bit more beautiful by means of this journey.

PS: We are trying try to organize a mission trip to Lesvos about once a month, but due to the continuous and rapidly changing circumstances, we cannot report any specific trip in advance. If you are interested in another month, please let us know through mail.

All our trips to Lesvos are also offered at the other GAiN establishments within Europe. Language will therefore be mainly in English, when foreign participants also sign up for this trip.

 

NOTE: The situation on Lesvos is changing daily/weekly. Please notice that the trips can be cancelled at any given moment! See the terms in our General Travel Conditions document.
