Get Informed


Posted by Ashley Eure

This is an exciting time as Saddleback PEACE Teams are helping children get of orphanages and into families. You or your family can make a difference in ways you’ve always dreamed of by participating in an Orphan Care trip to Rwanda! 

Children in Rwanda are learning about the love of Jesus through the love of a family of their own. You can help local churches as they partner with the Rwandan government, which has decided to empty all its orphanages by 2014. Of the 35 orphanages, 5 have already been emptied as children are placed into permanent families within Rwanda.

Orphan Care PEACE trips will do a variety of activities to help the local church.  We’ll provide the training you need before you go so that you can train local churches in things like the benefits of families, why orphans need to leave orphanages, assisting newly adoptive families, and very basic training of lay social workers using the community PEACE model. The average trip is about two weeks long.

Trips are scheduled throughout summer and fall, and more will be opening up soon.

Come to the Rwanda Trip Information Meeting on April 24th from 6:30 to 9pm in the MO2 Gathering Room at the Lake Forest campus to hear more about trips, ask questions, and learn how you can make a lasting impact in the life of a child!
