Ready for a once-in-a-lifetime trip? Looking to serve alongside Young Life Africa staff in Tanzania? Want the opportunity to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, the world’s highest free-standing mountain? Our Encounters trip to Tanzania is for you!
This is our 11th summer sending teams to serve alongside Young Life Africa in Tanzania. The team will partner in a community outreach with local Tanzanian YL staff and leaders in a remote Maasai village, where Young Life has a growing ministry. At the end of the trip, you have the option to join either a Safari Trip to the Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti or climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, to the top of Africa at 19,430 feet.
Alexis Kwamy, Young Life Regional Director in Tanzania said, “Young Life Expedition teams help us connect well with our local ministry and our local schools and sometimes even the government. The service projects we partner in help our schools and communities. However, the one thing I really appreciate is the spritual connection we get and the long time friendship between Young Life Africa and Young Life in the US. If it wasn’t for Young Life Expeditions our ministry would not be where it is today.”
Tom Mueller, an Encounters participant said, “Taking part in an Encounters trip has opened up a whole new door for us…for involvement…for prayer…for support. The Lord has blessed us but as we get older we need less and we want to do something that is making a difference, something that is having an eternal impact in the lives of kids. Our involvement with these Encounters trips through Expeditions has exposed us to Young Life on an international level.”
