Womens Trip - Colombia: 23B4A0707CO
You’ve got a story to tell. It’s significant, powerful, and you want it to count for something.
On this mission trip the Beauty for Ashes team will create a space for women to engage with their own story and connect with God.
From the Andes Mountains to the Amazon rainforest, Colombia is one of the most ecologically diverse countries in the world. It is also home to unreached tribes, a large student population rapidly rejecting the Gospel, and thousands of children living on the streets. Colombia sits at the crossroads of Central and South America, making its culture almost as diverse as its natural resources.
You know about women who are suffering and being victimized, and your heart breaks for them.
That's exactly how Ruth and her team felt on the very first Beauty for Ashes trip in 2014. They wanted to see women set free from the lies they had believed for years. On that trip, Ruth met a woman named Nancy. She realized this new friend had a story in need of God’s redemption. After her time with Ruth, Nancy began believing God's truth — her story does matter.
On this mission trip, Beauty for Ashes will serve the women of Medellin, Colombia with our ministry partner Ciudad de Refugio. You'll meet and build relationships with women coming out of homelessness, addiction, and prostitution that are in Ciudad de Refugio’s one-year Christ-centered restoration program.
Heavily influenced by Native American, Latin, European, African, Middle Eastern, and American cultures, 71% of its people practice Roman Catholicism. However, it is heavily influenced by tribal religions and focuses on works, instead of a relationship with Jesus. The women of Colombia need to encounter a loving relationship with God.
Your team will:
Host Beauty for Ashes retreats, creating a space for God to bring hope, healing, and redemption to the stories of local women.
Be equipped to share about topics such as worth, identity, healing, and forgiveness with others through storytelling and vulnerability.
Build meaningful relationships with your team and those with whom you minister.
Gain a deeper understanding of who God is and who you are as His daughter.
