|Serving with Heart for Africa (Canada) in 2018
Heart for Africa (Canada) has
service trips planned for Swaziland throughout 2018. Please check all
of the dates for the service opportunity that meets your needs.
Who participates in a Heart
for Africa service trip? Our trips include individuals and groups of
friends looking for that perfect opportunity to give back to those in
need. It is not uncommon to find an entire family serving alongside one
another on a service trip. And of course, Heart for Africa is happy to
have groups from churches across North America serving with us in
Please note that Canada Revenue
Agency does not permit issuance of official tax receipts for payments
made towards service trips.
Special Note for Church Leaders
Every church leader wants to
provide an opportunity for international missions to their
congregation. But sometimes that can be a very time-consuming and
somewhat frightening task. Sunday is coming and there never seems to be
enough time to get all of the work done. Heart for Africa would love
to help you plan for your 2018 international missions. We have a team
of highly qualified professionals in international missions waiting to
join with you to make your dream of service in Africa a reality. Send
us an email at email@example.com.
Summer 2018 Trip Description (*Itineraries subject to change)
Day One - Saturday: Depart from North America.
Day Two – Sunday: Arrive in Johannesburg and overnight at the City Lodge Airport Hotel.
Day Three – Monday: Drive to Swaziland, check in, group orientation, and meet your team and team leader.
Day Four/Five/Six – Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday: All teams serve on Project Canaan throughout these three days. The type of work will depend on the specific needs of the farm at the time of travel. To help you understand Heart for Africa and Project Canaan more fully, we will start with a tour that will include agriculture projects, irrigation, goat and chicken farming, as well as the dairy, ISO Building, Children's Campus, Kufundza Vocational Training Center and the El Rofi Medical Center. In addition, each team will be assigned a Project Canaan family in need. The team will take food and clothing to the family, pray, listen and encourage them. This is a great opportunity to see Swazi culture up close, while developing a relationship with an individual family who is in need and who we want to provide extra support to.
Day Seven – Friday: Individual volunteers will have the opportunity to spend the day on a game drive (safari) or local wildlife preserve and a market shopping expedition.
Day Eight – Saturday: The February and November teams will spend this day serving on Project Canaan. The July team will serve at a rural church and will spend time with the pastor and/or church leaders learning more about the church, the community and their needs. There will be time to play soccer with the kids, prepare food for Sunday, and rehearsal for any musicians who want to be a part of the service on Sunday.
Day Nine – Sunday: The February and November teams will spend this day serving on Project Canaan and attend Children's Church. The July team will spend the day at the rural church and attend their service. People working on food preparation will join the women to help with cooking, while anyone participating in the church service will prepare for worship. Other team members can help with children's church with songs and message. Church usually begins at 10:00 AM and ends some time after noon. Lunch will be served after the service. It is a day of fellowship and encouragement. Teams will arrive back at the hotel for their farewell dinner together.
Day Ten – Monday: Individuals will check out of the hotel, stop at the Glass Factory (if time permits) and take the five hour bus ride back to Johannesburg for the flight back to the US and Canada.
Eleven – Tuesday: Everyone arrives back home and begins to think and
pray about how they can help the people they got to know and love in
