Africa Gospel Church Baby Center

Kenya struggles with an overwhelming epidemic of babies and children being orphaned or abandoned due to poverty, AIDS and other diseases. The AGC Baby Center provides a safe haven for these little ones. It is not an orphanage or a children’s home. Children ranging in age from birth to 4 years of age stay at the center only until they can be matched with adoptive partners.  Covenant teams on mission at the baby center go to love and nurture the children but our teams are working teams that lend a hand with whatever maintenance or improvements that are needed at the facility.  A safari experience is included at the end of the work week.  Please prayerfully consider joining our 2018 team.  The cost is $2,200 and includes airfare, lodging and meals (meals on travel days are not included).  Watch for the 2019 dates to be posted soon.

Belize Mission Trip (January 2019)

Our mission trip to Belize is an amazing opportunity to participate in the distribution of Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes.  Belize is divided into six districts.  Shoe boxes are distributed in different districts each year.  Distribution in 2019 will be in Belize City.  This is a physical mission trip that involves lots of lifting and bending.  The team will spend several days unpacking and sorting shoeboxes for distribution to churches in the district.  Then, the fun part, we get to help give shoe boxes to the children usually in several locations!!  After a hard week’s work, this team will enjoy some free time on one of the islands!  Applications are now being accepted.

Panama Medical Mission Trip

The Ngobe are the poorest of the poor in Panama. Our teams bring medical and dental care that is otherwise unavailable in the region.  CovMissions funds the medications that the team brings to the clinic.  Medical professionals and non-medical volunteers are needed.  Visiting the Panama Canal is an option at the end of the week.  The cost is $1,500 per person and includes airfare, lodging and meals (meals on travel days are not included).  Watch for the 2019 dates to be posted soon.
