World Impact:  World Impact ministry, whether it occurs locally, regionally, nationally or internationally, is a tremendously rewarding way to extend God’s grace as we place others ahead of ourselves, and serve the Kingdom with a more global perspective.

Team Goals: This team is comprised of college aged students and their leaders with the love and desire to work with Spanish teens and children. We will be working with long term international workers in Spain. The team will assist with an annual English camp conducted primarily in English to reach out to neighborhood children through song, arts, story time and activities. The team will also assist small projects as needed by the International Workers.

Mission Organization:   Christian and Missionary Alliance

Location:  Granada, Spain

Housing:   Housing and some meals will be with Spanish families, one team member per home. Great opportunities for fellowship and blessings.

Transportation:  Airline, followed by local transportation.

Cost:   $2400.00 plus travel meals and gift for host family
Includes:  airline ticketing, travel health insurance, Visa (trip specific), food, housing, ground transportation, and project costs (supplies and materials).

Fundraising:  All members participating in a World Impact Trip are required to send a prayer letter/email.  This may also help raise support for their trip expenses. If a team member receives contributions beyond their need, the extra monies will be used for other trip related expenses.
