How many times have you heard something promoted as “the trip of a lifetime:” a cruise, ski vacation, maybe even a world tour? But consider something that’s might be much more than even those experiences. A Discovery Trip with David C Cook.
Of course you’ll see most of what tourists see. But you’ll also see with your eyes as a believer, a Christ follower. Along with the road noise and poverty of a developing country you’ll see the Lord’s Spirit among the poorest of the poor. You’ll witness spiritual oppression and, in its midst, feel the profound vibration of God’s mighty power to save.
And the people you’ll meet! Children whose smiles hide the ravages of abandonment, AIDS or the horror of watching their parents murdered in front of them. Pastors passionately ministering in places hostile to the Gospel. Adult orphans dedicated to lifting up the orphans of the next generation. Believers experiencing God’s miracles.
It is challenging to visit another culture. No doubt about it. You’ll find, however, that the experienced David C Cook staff is skilled at managing issues of safety and health. The Cook team knows intimately the areas and people you’ll visit, and are always available to help with questions about culture and language, even about shopping! Be assured there are frequent chances to find gifts for family and friends, and to remember your trip once you’re back home.
“I expected the time would be special, interesting and memorable,” says one traveler about a trip last year. “But I came home with a changed heart, new vision and desire to bond much more with believers I met.”
