We have an ongoing partnership with Open Arms International, a ministry that rescues orphaned and abandoned children in Eldoret, Kenya. Throughout the years we have taken work teams to complete projects in the village, ministry teams to teach topics and minister to adults and children, and medical teams.
This team will be a combination of a work and ministry team and will be participating in completing needed projects in the village, a feeding program in the slums, visiting children in a children’s prison and more.
You will be staying in very comfortable western style guest lodges with bathrooms and showers in the Open Arms Village. Meals are carefully prepared especially for our team and are safe to eat.

We will provide all fundraising supplies and an online fundraising platform for you as part of your trip cost.
Please note that deadlines are not flexible. All payment amounts must be made by posted date to retain your place on the team. The trip cost is tax-deductible, but funds are non-transferable and non-refundable.
What is Covered?
Roundtrip airfare from DFW to Nairobi and from Nairobi to Eldoret, all lodging and transportation costs, all meals in Kenya, medical and evacuation insurance, and a missions t-shirt. Please bring spending money to cover souvenirs, personal items, and additional snacks/meals/drinks you might like to purchase in the airport or during the trip.
Once you fill out your application it will be reviewed within 24 hours. You will receive an email with detailed next steps, which will include completing all needed consent forms. You will then need to schedule a meeting with the missions department to go over forms, notarize anything that requires a notary, and receive your fundraising supplies. Once that is complete, you can start fundraising and prepare for your trip!
Team training is a vital part of your mission trip experience and is required to be a part of the team. You will be given meeting dates at your initial appointment and will be required to attend at least 80% of the meetings. We have found that team members who prioritize meeting attendance are far more prepared and have a much more fulfilling mission trip.
A valid passport that does expire prior to January 1, 2023 is required for this team. Please apply for your passport as soon as your trip application is approved.
