Foothold organizes 10-14 day trips to visit and serve at our ministry sites. If you are interested in coming to Kenya, we encourage you to read the attached documents to get an idea of what you may be getting yourself into. We take seriously the task of bringing visitors to Kenya, preparing you to go and keeping you safe throughout the trip.
Foothold requires that all going on trips with us to attend 4-6 pre-trip trainings and debrief sessions. We also plan for at least one post-trip gathering to help support you as you transition back home after such an extraordinary experience.
In addition, we have 2 books that are required reading: When Helping Hurts: The Small Group Experience by Brian Fikkert and Steve Corbett and Mac & Leann’s Guide to Short-Term Missions by J. Mack Stiles & Leanne Stiles.
Below you will find documents to help you prepare and pack for your trip.
