Nepal
May / All Church

5/19/2023 - 5/29/2023

OVERVIEW
Nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas, Kathmandu is a bustling city full of colorful streets, local artisans, and mountain peaks in every direction. You’ll meet people with stories and faith that measure taller and wider than Mount Everest. And oh yeah…you’ll get to see Mount Everest too.

IMPACT
Partnered with our friends on the ground, you’ll be part of the solution as we combat human exploitation. Be prepared for God to show up in ways you’ve never experienced through the faces of women and children who have survived the unimaginable.

STORY
Your heart will break, your impact will be deep and meaningful, and you’ll grow immeasurably. Join us at the front lines of fighting human trafficking and exploitation in Nepal. It’s time to GO.

All participants will be required to show proof of being fully vaccinated with the COVID-19 vaccine OR a 72 hour Negative COVID-19 test upon arrival.
