Mission Trips

THERE’S NOTHING LIKE BEING THERE
A missions trip will not only give you a chance to see what your support of Children’s Cup is accomplishing, but it will change your life forever. Guaranteed. Our founder Dave Ohlerking used to tell people, “Once you go to Africa, you’ll go back in your mind every day.” He said that because it’s true. It gets in you. There’s something special about holding an orphan, and knowing that you’re actually doing the things that are needed to not just keep him alive, but to give him hope of a bright future.

We strongly encourage you to consider going on a trip with us. If you’re a sponsor of a child in one of the countries where your team is going, we’ll do all we can during your missions trip to make sure you get to meet your sponsored child while you’re there. And trust us… that’s a powerful experience you’ll never want to forget. Keep checking back as we continue to update the available trips!

HONDURAS - OCTOBER 7-12, 2019
Cost: $2,000 US Dollars (Includes flight and ground costs -  does NOT include passport costs, luggage fees, physician and immunization costs, or souvenirs)

Much of our work is done through our network of CarePoints. A CarePoint is what its name implies: a point of care. When a missions team shows up at a CarePoint, the children there know that it means they’re not forgotten – they’re loved – they’re special. And the things you do while you’re there, whether building something or teaching kids or training leaders or painting walls – whatever your mission, it is always all about giving the hope of Jesus Christ to children who know all too well what it means to have no hope.
eSWATINI - OCTOBER 20-29, 2019

Cost: $3,600 US Dollars (Includes flight and ground costs)


Join us in October as we love, encourage, and spend time pouring into the precious people in eSwatini, Africa. Many of the kids’ names mean “unwanted” and “mistake”, but we want to tell them that they are loved, wanted, and give them hope! In addition to spending time at the CarePoints, you will get to meet your sponsored child; participate in our feeding program; visit a family in their home and hear their story; tour the community; visit the I Am Not Forgotten Home; encourage and love the ladies who volunteer at our CarePoints; and go on an African safari!


This will be one of the best trips of your life! These sweet faces will forever be in your mind and heart!

CUSTOM MISSIONS TRIP
If you’re interested in a customized missions team trip for your church or group, we’d love to know! Every year, several churches and groups come to Africa and Latin America to serve at our Children’s Cup CarePoints. Let us know you’re what you’re wanting to do. We’ll get back to you promptly to begin the journey with you!
FUNDRAISING IDEAS

Send Letters

Communicating the vision behind why you are taking a trip to your friends and family through letter writing is one of the most important steps in your fundraising process. Many people may not travel to other countries to serve in the way that you are choosing to, but by giving financially to your trip, they get to be part of your trip. Your letter can be an invitation to your friends and family to make an impact together. 

Garage Sale

Providing gently used items for a garage sale can be another incredible way to involve more of your friends and family as you raise funds. Not everyone you send a letter to will be able to give financially, but allowing them the opportunity to donate items to you for a garage sale is another great way for people to contribute. As you ask for donations, you can let them know that 100% of the proceeds from the sale will go toward trip funds. 

Business Partner 

Many of your local business owners have a heart for missions and want to make an impact beyond their community. You can communicate the vision behind your trip to the owner and offer the opportunity for them to partner with you by donating a percentage of their sales for a certain day. You can then be a blessing to that business by encouraging friends and family to shop at that establishment. 

Community Service Opportunities:

Baby Sitting

Offer to babysit for a family in your community. Or, you can work with other people going on your trip and organize a ”Date Night” for several families to drop off their kids.  Make it fun for the kids and easy for the parents, and you may get the opportunity to make it a monthly event!

Pet Care

Offering to take care of pets while families are out of town is another good way to raise support. 

Car Wash

Organize a car wash with your team! Advertise ahead of time and have information about your trip available at the car wash. You can let people choose the amount they want to donate when you wash their car. 

Bake Sale

This is a popular, low-cost option especially around the holidays.   Create a flier with information on how to place an order and post it on social media.  Pies and other baked goods are a “sweet” way to raise money for mission trips!
