Global Mission: China

  • July 11 - August 1, 2019
  • $3,700 ( All Inclusive)

Cause 4 Life Interns in China

Interns participating in the China Mission trip will receive training on the biblical view of disability and a theology of suffering through our Beyond Suffering Curriculum (BYS), and participate in practical application in serving people affected by disability.

Interns will serve at Shepherds Field Children’s Village (SFCV) which is a home/orphanage for people with disabilities (teens and young adults) not eligible for adoption due to their age. As an intern you will be offering them love and support, as well as observing the different educational and medical services offered at Shepherd’s Field. Interns will visit Hope Ranch and learn about hippotherapy and observe the staff as they work with people affected by disability. There is also a possibility for shadowing opportunities in various therapy fields.

All interns are granted opportunity to use their gifts and skillsets to serve their team and people affected by disability with whom they come into contact. Whether you are a special education, ministry, or therapy major, or you are a person with great organizational skills, come ready to unite as one team, bringing the hope only God can provide to the marginalized of society.

"God taught me the act of service and how to be able to take what I learned in China and use it in my community back home." —Sarah Susman, C4L Intern
