This trip is for Southwest Campus HSM students only.
This team will have the opportunity to continue to build the partnership between the Southeast and the Kisumu community thru our SCC Missions Parter, Life in Abundance. The team will serve alongside the local church in various activities such as working with youth and children, cleaning up in the community, home visits, evangelism, construction projects and more.
Life In Abundance's transformational development approach requires community ownership and long-term solutions. LIA partners with the local church and community leadership to determine communities’ most significant needs and then trains, supports and works alongside the local church to meet those needs well into the future.
