ABOUT TRIPS

Connect. Serve. Grow.

Joining us on a trip will give you the opportunity to experience all the work Sozo Children is a part of in Uganda. This trip is designed for you to experience not only the amazing work God is doing in Uganda but also to grow in your relationship with Him throughout the week! Our unique design allows you to partner alongside and empower our long-term outreach efforts while also reflecting on the challenging aspects that often accompanies this work. Our hope is that you leave Uganda with a deeper relationship with Christ and others as well as a greater understanding and appreciation for working in a developing country. We are confident once you experience this incredible country and the people in it you’ll feel so connected you’ll have to go back!

WHAT OUR TEAMS ARE SAYING...

Barrett
Traveling to Uganda with Sozo Children not only changed my life, but it taught me so much about Jesus. One word to describe my time in Uganda? Joy. I was captivated by the Joy I witnessed. The Sozo Children staff and children taught me what it’s like to have Joy in your past, present, and future. Because our ultimate joy is in Jesus - no matter where we are in life. These kids give the sweetest, most unconditional love. I didn’t get on a plane headed across oceans expecting to leave a piece of my heart there, but I did. And I left always dreaming of my favorite country half-way around the world. I’m thankful that I know Uganda through Sozo Children and I’m humbled by my opportunity to be a part of this organization!

If you ever want to go on a missions trip, go with Sozo Children. It was a life changing experience and I will never forget all the friendships and memories that were made. I love you all and can’t wait to go back!”

“I went on my first mission with Sozo for the 3-week trip and it was hands down the best three weeks of my life. God’s presence was so strong all around us; the airports, the Sozo homes, the village, in the city, church, and during our morning devotions and nightly debriefs. The friendships I made were extra special to me because they were formed through the common bond of serving our great God. Even though our trip ended, I still talk to my team members daily. Every night we would tell each other where we saw God that day, and although we would only say one or two places, we all knew He was working everywhere in our lives and in those we met. Our time in Uganda taught us to love each other more and serve with a full heart, but most importantly our trip influenced us to minister those back at home that we often overlook. I absolutely cannot wait to return to Uganda with Sozo again!”

Going to Uganda with Sozo has really opened my eyes to see how God works throughout the world. The children’s faith in the Lord is inspirational. My past few trips have impacted my life by showing me, through the children, that you can still have hope and love in the Lord even after going through tough seasons in life.”
