Africa New Life COVID-19 Rwanda Travel Update

All 2020 travel to Rwanda with Africa New Life has been postponed. Careful evaluation of the myriad risks and restrictions shows there is too much uncertainty for a team to achieve the objectives of a trip and return home without delay. Come January 2021, Rwandan and US Leadership will reassess the situation and communicate future travel availability. We appreciate your prayers and patience and look forward to traveling together safely again soon!

 If you have any questions, please email teamtrip@africanewlife.org.

Thank you for your continued support of the ministry.

AFRICA NEW LIFE SENDS THREE TYPES OF TEAMS TO RWANDA:

  • VISION: Vision teams include people from all over the country. These teams are organized and led by Africa New Life Ministries and include men and women who desire to serve, to meet their sponsored student, and to explore a long-term partnership with Africa New Life.
  • CHURCH: Church teams large and small visit Rwanda together for an experience like no other. Church team travel to Rwanda is a wonderful way to further the discipleship and deepen the spiritual life of your church while making a difference in the world. These teams are organized and led by a specific church with the guidance of Africa New Life. Learn more about getting your church involved with Africa New Life by browsing our church partnership site.
  • COMPANY: Company teams are made up of staff from particular businesses or organizations who want to give back and get involved internationally. Their trips are organized with the guidance of Africa New Life.

WHAT TO EXPECT ON YOUR TRIP:

Each trip schedule depends on team composition and the needs of the ministry in Rwanda. We want to use each team’s gifts, heart, and passion! The specific focus and activities of the trip will depend on the dynamics of the team.

Below are activities that most teams will participate in:
