We are happy to report that this trip is full. Please check out our other trips going to China!
Storyteller mission teams serve in orphanages that partner with America World Adoption Agency. Our purpose is simply to be the hands and feet of Jesus, as we love, care for, and help meet the needs of an orphanage full of babies and children.
This trip will be slightly different than our other Storyteller Mission trips.....This year, our Storyteller Missions Department has been given a very unique opportunity to go into a province that holds some of our partnership orphanages, but one in which we have never been granted permission to step foot into! The CCCWA (that oversees the adoption process in China) is inviting us into the province of Guizhou, to meet some very special children already registered for adoption as we participate in their Hope Journey Program.
During this trip, we will focus on children whose information appears on China’s “shared list”, but who reside in several of AWAA’s partnership orphanages. These children with medical needs often fall to the wayside and their stories are never told. These children’s files need to be updated, their personalities need to be given a chance to shine, and WE get to tell their stories!
America World is opening this trip up to several very specific groups of people. We would love to see team members comprised of families who are praying about adoption from China or may already be in the process. We also desire for this team to have a very large medical presence to assist with assessments and updating files. Lastly, we need people who are passionate about advocating for these special children. We need you to come home and be committed to write, share, and pray relentlessly to let God work through you and help bring these children home to their forever families!
