Conejo Valley Community Church’s 2018 Africa team is going to be visiting, serving and building relationships at 3 different orphanages this summer. We are honored to be representatives of Christ, CVCC and the LoVE Organization.
Dates: July 6-23, 2018
Orphanages: iKhethelo and Lily of the Valley in Kwazulu Natal, South Africa and Lirhanzo in Chikombedzi, Zimbabwe.
"Hi all :) My name is Mara Mann and I am in my second year of college at California Baptist University, studying Sociology with a minor in Early childhood development. I am studying these because Africa has captured my heart and so have children, so my goal in life is to serve there. I have been given an incredible opportunity to go back to South Africa, and back to the orphanages I fell in love with two summers ago. Because of many peoples generosity towards the organization that I will be going through, called Lily of the Valley Endeavors, they have been able to sponsor a new orphanage in Zimbabwe. I will be gone for a little over two weeks at the beginning of July, spending a week in South Africa and a week in Zimbabwe. While I am at each orphanage, the team and I will be putting on a Vacation Bible School in order to teach the children about their loving Father. On the off time, I can promise you that there will not be a moment where I am not out of breath from running and playing with the children, showing them love and working hard to get their physical, emotional and spiritual needs met. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, please feel free to message me any further questions. I really can not thank you enough for allowing me to help these children because my heart is shattered every time I hear a story of what they have had to go through at such a young age. Anything and everything helps, thoughts, prayers, money, ect. Thank you all again."
