About Mission:Rush - Africa
Each year, our high school students take a week during summer to go on mission. Next summer, Mission:Rush is heading to South Africa! We will be working with an amazing mission organization called J-Life while we are there.
July 26 - August 3
When: We will fly out from DFW Airport on July 26 at 12:15pm. Students & adults will be required to arrive at DFW Airport by 9:15am. Our flights will be on Emirates Airlines and we will have a 2 hour layover in Dubai before heading on to Johannesburg, South Africa. We will arrive in Johannesburg early Saturday morning.
Our return trip will see us leave Johannesburg Friday, August 2. We will take the same route back home with a short layover in Dubai before arriving back to Dallas around 9:50am on Saturday, August 3.
This trip will be a total of 8 days including 2 travel days.
Where: We will be working with J-Life Ministries in South Africa this summer. J-Life has missionaries all throughout Africa, but we will be focused specifically on South Africa for our trip. We will learn more specifics about the areas we will serve as we get closer to the trip and J-Life sees the needs. During the evenings, will be staying at J-Life's camp site, Camp Eden, located south-east of Johannesburg. You can read more about J-Life and their ministry on their website.
How Much: Mission:Rush 2019 will cost $2300.
NOTE: this cost does not include the cost of mandatory vaccinations for entering Africa. Those costs will be dependent on your insurance. We will provide a specific list of required shots in early 2019.
Who Can Go: Like previous Mission:Rush trips, students who are currently in High School and students who are currently in 8th grade can participate with parental sign-off.
What We Will Be Doing: More specific details will come later, but we are expecting to do a little bit of everything on this trip! Primarily we will be working with children, but we may also have construction projects, specific Gospel opportunities, sports activities and more. As with every mission trip, we will be flexible to the needs that J-Life sees.
We are planning multiple fundraisers for this trip that will be offered to families. This spring we are planning a massive garage sale! This has the potential to raise a lot of money for students and adults who participate by working the event. So start saving those quality items you don't want for us this next spring.
Students will also need to write letters to family and friends to ask for support. We know that $2300 is a lot of money to raise, but God is capable of this and so much more! It will take some work, but we promise that it can be done!
