Malawi Service Trip
(This trip is on hold for 2018.)
TKA juniors and seniors are invited to apply to be part of the Malawi Servant Trip. We will be partnering with Malawi Children’s Mission in Blantyre, Malawi. We will spend time with approximately 150 orphans from three local villages helping in the feeding center, playing with the children, teaching God’s Word and tutoring in academic subjects. We will also be visiting a local village having the opportunity to interact with the local people and find out about their lives. Additionally, we will visit the Queen Elizabeth State Hospital to bring gifts to those who are extremely ill and pray with them.
Scripture speaks about God’s heart for those who are oppressed. We have a wonderful opportunity to see God’s heart for the poor and BE the hands and feet of Jesus in a very practical way. This trip enables our students to truly see the vast difference between the first and third world and to develop a global awareness which becomes integral to who they are, and which God uses to motivate and call them to serve Him.
All past trips have been transformational in the lives of the students and adults that participated. We were stretched out of our comfort zones, served in a community where smiles and play were the main means of communication, we have interacted in discussions with other high school students about world issues, prayed alongside the ill and dying in hospital, learned to pray for a hurting world, laughed endlessly on our long bus rides, squealed at bugs and became a unified team.
