Mission Trips provide opportunities to serve people outside of the Omaha metro area. Some trips involve physical labor like cutting wood or building homes, while others provide opportunities to work with children or minister more directly to adults. Every trip is different, but the goal of each is the same: to demonstrate God's love in concrete, tangible ways to a world that desperately needs it.

Ecuador Mission Trip 

August 1st - 8th | Santa Elena, Ecuador | Led by Victoria Leuthold 

Join us in Santa Elena, Ecuador as we visit the church we planted through Stadia and children sponsored through Compassion International. Those who have sponsored children will also have the unique opportunity to meet their sponsored-child.Nothing says, “You are special, valued, significant or powerful” quite like a visit from a child’s sponsor. The surprise is that the sponsor often feels the same message coming back to them from their sponsored child – this interaction is nothing short of a truly sacred encounter. Our team will help host VBS at the church and spend additional time developing relationships with the children at the project and church staff. 

"The Compassion trip to Ecuador was an experience of a lifetime. I felt as connected to Jesus as I have ever been. The opportunity I had to invest in church leaders, visit my sponsor child's home, and build relationships with kids was priceless." – Alyse W.

"The people at the church in Ecuador were amazing.  We thought we were going there to serve and minister to them. They, in turn, served and ministered to us.  We were truly blessed by the people of Ecuador and the Compassion interpreters.  It was an incredible experience." – Nancy S.

"Visiting Justin, my sponsor child, allowed him to put a face and a voice and a hug to a name and the same was true for me with him. Before I went to Ecuador he was a kiddo on the other side of the Equator that I cared for financially but when I met him, he became my family and I became his." – Aanna S.
