HOW TO SERVE WITH PROJECT LUCAS
Make a lasting impact in Kenya by joining Project Lucas on mission. On these trips, you’ll meet and serve some of the most impoverished children and families just outside of Nairobi.
All of our short-term mission trips give participants a chance to discover a deeper level of compassion within themselves. Most trips include distributing backpacks while sharing the gospel to hundreds of families, working at the Project Lucas Community Center assisting our Kenyan staff, loving and caring for our sponsorship children, visiting sponsorship families, light construction work, and many other opportunities to share Christ’s love. It also includes a two-day safari, shopping, and a visit to Kenya’s oldest tea farm.
Our US staff and Kenyan staff at Project Lucas will arrange everything for the entire team’s trip (excluding purchase of airline tickets for you/your team) in country. This trip is a life-changing and our team will make sure that you have an experience that will last a lifetime while making a lasting impact on those in need.
what you need to know
What happens on a Project Lucas Mission Trip?
We will travel to Ruiru, Kenya, just outside the capital city of Nairobi. You will help share the gospel to thousands of children and their families by distributing backpacks. The team will also serve at the Project Lucas Academy and Community Center, ministering and loving on the 100+ children and 90 families that are part of the Project Lucas sponsorship program. You will visit their homes, play with their children, and help them grow in their walk with the Lord by sharing Christ, and opportunities to disciple them. You will also have the opportunity to see the amazing wild animals that live in the Masai Mara on our 2-day safari.
