Come on a Trip

You’re invited to be a part of what God is doing through Mully Children’s Family!


Muly lab trip page

Several times a year, teams from around the world make their way to Kenya. Many say their experiences changed their lives forever.

At MCF, you’ll see God bringing hope to the hopeless firsthand…and it’s our prayer that you will discover that you—yes, you!—have a beautiful and important role in bringing hope to dark places.

Mission trips with Mully Children’s Family are intentional. When you come on a trip, you bring something to MCF no one else can. Because of this, we’ll make sure you get opportunities to serve in your God-given giftings.

What does a trip look like?

If you’ve done a mission trip in the past, your experience on an MCF mission team might be a little bit different. We don’t have a construction project generally, as we don’t want to take away from Kenyan locals who depend on MCF construction projects for their livelihood. So, instead of building structures, we’re building relationships.

You won’t just leave being changed. We believe that the lives of MCF beneficiaries will be changed, too, because you loved them well in the name of Jesus.

Information about our Trips

Team Size

6-20. We typically need six participants to take an organized group trip.

Locations We Will Visit

We usually spend the majority of our time in Ndalani, Kenya, where the main MCF location is, but we often visit other MCF sites throughout Kenya. We usually (but not always) end the trip with a safari, where we can debrief together as a group.

How can I join?

First, we invite you to participate in a 1-hour Zoom session that will cover general information about the opportunities listed below and specifics about upcoming trips. You can sign up below!

Who May Come on a Trip?

Churches, organizations, families, and individuals frequently attend trips. Churches and organizations frequently have groups that go on trips together. However, you do not have to be a part of a group from a church or organization to join us. Whether you are an individual or a family interested in coming on a trip, there is a place for you!

Regardless of whether you are a church, organization, family, or individual, no prior contact or involvement with MCF is required or expected. “Cold outreach” is welcome, and we look forward to getting to know you!

Trip Length

10-14 days.

Preparation

We will have several months of preparation before departing to develop friendships amongst the team, learn about what we will experience in Kenya, and discover how we can best serve together. This time of soul-nourishment prepares our hearts for our time with MCF.

Who Will be on my Team?

You may be paired with other travelers if your group size is 10 or less. Ample opportunities to build friendships with everyone on your team will be provided before departing!
