Join Zoe Empowers on virtual mission trip this week, June 22-24
A free, virtual, three-day visit to Rwanda, Kenya, and India awaits you on three mornings this week, on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, June 22-24, from 9:30 to 11:00 AM each day. Start the next three days off with Morning Mission Adventures, where you can learn and fall in love with the children and the lifesaving work of Zoe Empowers.
International mission trips are the heartbeat of some of our strongest, most transformational local churches – but in this past year of severe COVID-related restrictions, travel – and even making plans to travel – just hasn’t happened.
Good news: You DON’T have to miss out on this ministry joy, completely! The Eastern PA Conference is partnering with ZOE Empowers, an organization which in 2021 introduced VIRTUAL Mission trips in order to introduce folks to its incredible, international program of serving children in poverty.
ZOE’s entire approach is based on “Empowerment, not Hand-outs” – and it has demonstrated success among more than 100,000 children of the world, so far.
A free, three-day visit to Rwanda, Kenya, and India awaits you on the mornings of June 22-24 (9:30-11:00 am each day).
Pack your bags for a virtual trip to Rwanda, Kenya, and India! Glimpse the kingdom of God with orphaned and vulnerable children around the world lifting themselves permanently out of poverty. What does this unique travel experience include?
- Day 1 on June 22nd at 9:30am to 11:00am: Visit Rwanda with Epiphanie Mujawimana, founder of Zoe’s empowerment program and manager of Zoe Rwanda. Listen in wonder as Epiphanie describes Zoe’s genesis out of tragedy and how this movement of God began. You will be amazed by what orphaned children in Rwanda are capable of with just a little support.
- Day 2 on June 23rd at 9:30am to 11:00am: Explore a Kenyan village with Reegan Kaberia, Zoe’s chief program officer and manager of Zoe Kenya. Hear directly from the incredible boys and girls in Zoe’s program. Be inspired by the triumph of the human spirit in God’s hands.
- Day 3 on June 24th at 9:30am to 11:00am: Travel to the exotic location of India and speak with Nani Chintala, manager for Zoe Vizag, India. See God at work in urban slums on a new continent. Also learn how your gifts and skills can be used by God to change the world for these young people.
