What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

CE043DC0-05A3-4B9B-A378-C27E30CED495.jpg

WHO WE ARE

We have provided opportunities for people to serve on trips to Uganda, Africa for over 15 years and we love it! We now have a 40+ acre missions base that hosts hundreds of people every year for short-term missions and internship opportunities. Our Ugandan staff team consistently serves in surrounding villages and they joyfully lead individuals/teams throughout the year!

Our mission in everything we do is to mobilize, inspire and empower people to live on purpose while reaching out in love. We believe that everyone was created by God with a special purpose and plan. Our goal is to see that purpose discovered, nurtured and fulfilled. We’ve seen individual’s passions ignited and dreams awakened after they’ve said “yes” to serve with us.

WHERE

We will pick you up at the Entebbe International Airport in Kampala. You will be brought to our beautiful base just North of Kampala, where you will stay the duration of your trip. Everyday our team visits local surrounding villages to do ministry. You will have an opportunity to serve in multiple capacities, and visit multiple villages depending on your interests. Your meals will be provided on base by our cook, and at the end of your stay we will take you back to the airport. We look forward to hosting you!

WHEN

Our local team operates in consistent ministries every week. Join when it is most convenient for you (and your team if you are serving with one). We host individuals and teams throughout the entire year for customizable trips. Some specific organized trips in 2022-2023 include: General Trip w/Nile River Visit from October 5th-19th, 2022; Christmas Break from December 14th-22nd, 2022; Spring Break from March 10th-17th, 2023; General Trip w/African Safari Trip from July 5th-21st, 2023. To view the most recently updated trip opportunities, you can always visit our website at showmercy.org/upcoming-trips. Most days will consist of breakfast, morning ministry, lunch, afternoon ministry, and dinner. In between ministry and meals there will be time to rest, enjoy the beautiful base and surrounding hills.

SKILLS

Come with a willing heart to learn and to serve. If a specific outreach requires a specific skill, our Ugandan staff will help equip you.
