Have you ever wanted to go to Africa?
Have you ever wanted to fully experience a different culture?
Have you ever wanted to drink a cup of coffee in the country where it was first discovered?
Do you have a desire to learn more about yourself, God, and the world? 


Then this #117trip is for you.

December 27, 2017 January 6, 2018

This isn’t just a serving trip, but we will serve.

This isn’t just a 10 day trip, but a 10 month, multinational experience.

This isn’t your typical “mission trip,” but we are certainly on a mission.

What’s the mission?

    LEARN to do good.

    SEEK justice.

    HELP the oppressed.

    DEFEND the cause of the orphan.

    FIGHT for the rights of the widow.

              Isaiah 1:17


So, how do you do this in your context, with your skill set, and with your resources?


What makes this trip different than other mission trips?
  1. Each trip is custom built. Each team will spend time in the village of Korah at the Carry 117 compound, along with other ministry partners. We will create the team schedule based on the age, interest, and skill set of the team. We believe the best way to serve is in your sweet spot.
  1. A large component of this experience will be education. We believe the first step in helping is understanding. In addition to seeing and serving, we want to help our team members understand another culture and understand healthy helping strategies.


Quick Facts:
  • We will take 15 people.
  • The trip will be led by some of our Carry 117 USA Staff.
  • We will encourage you, teach you, challenge you, and pray with you.
  • And…we will have fun!

We’d love for you to be part of this experience!
