Mission Trip 2017--

"I have come that you might have life more abundantly, life in all its fullness..." (Jesus in the Gospel of John)
Nearly every year since 2008, WorldHope Corps has sent a Mission Team to Malawi and/or Uganda to support our partners in their ministries of compassion, health and wholeness and community development. 

This year, four veteran members of WorldHope Corps-- Rev. Michele Robbins, Dr. Doug Smith, Dr. Caroline Njuki, and myself--will join Pastor Dennis Singini and his team in Malawi and Pastor Moses and his team in Uganda for 11 days of ministry together (Sept 25-Oct 7, 2017). 

The theme of our mission is "Life More Abundant" in Time of AIDS" (John 10:10)

Our Goal:  To empower women to protect themselves and promote human dignity, economic sustainability and “life more abundant” (Shalom) in the community. 

Our work in Uganda is to help Pastor Justine (a local Shalom leader) facilitate a Women's Empowerment Conference focused on preventing domestic abuse, HIV/AIDS and living healthy lives in the community.  Before ad after the conference, we plan to present funds raised from sale of Uganda jewelry to the women’s group in Jinja; meet with Pastor Moses and Shalom Coffee Coop board to encourage progress; meet with Br. Julius and SARS representatives to encourage their progress on the Fresh Water Store project (Sept 26-30).

Our Mission in Malawi is to help Mrs. Marion Phiri (WorldHope Malawi board member) and her team lead a Women's Empowerment Conference focused on domestic violence and HIV issues; and help Pastor Dennis Singini (WorldHope Corps Program Director) conduct Shalom Training and Graduation of first Shalom Team (Oct 1-6).  

We still need sponsors for the Women's Empowerment Consultation in Uganda and Malawi. 

Your donation of just $50 to WorldHope Corps will help one more young woman participate in the women's empowerment conference.  

The easiest way to help is to donate online at or mail a check to the address below.

Thank you, dear friends!
