FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
- What Does A Typical Day On A Journey Look Like?
After a fairly early breakfast, we meet for about 45 minutes of worship, prayer and time in care groups. These groups of 6-7 people are a great way to be encouraged and strengthened throughout the Journey. Then we head out to that day’s community. For about six of the days we will conduct mobile medical clinics.* If you’re not a medical person––no worries, most of us aren’t either. But there are important roles for every member, whether praying for the hundreds of sick who will come, distributing anti-parasite medicine, weighing babies, being a runner or helping in the pharmacy. During the day, small groups go out into the community to pray for people on the streets, organize activities for children, and often just listen and love people. In the evening we go back to the community and hold a celebration where there are songs, testimonies, the Gospel is preached and the sick are healed. You are the one who leads people to Jesus and who prays for the sick. These outdoor gatherings always have a major impact on the community and often lead to new churches and ministries being established.
On days when we don’t conduct clinics, we engage in things like visiting an orphanage or school, preaching and baptizing in prisons, doing a feeding program for children, or simple practical projects. On Sundays, the team breaks into small groups and goes to a number of churches where we will preach, teach the congregation how to heal the sick, and give testimonies. This is always a very special day.
*Please note, not all Journeys include medical clinics. Those that do not will have a greater emphasis on projects and outreach.

- What's Included In The Journey Donation Target?
The Journey Donation Target covers everything the team needs from the moment they arrive at the moment they depart as they serve and bless the people in the developing world we are committed to ministering to practically and supernaturally. This includes medical clinic expenses, water filters, food distribution and other tangible meetings of physical needs as determined by the journey location and the pressing needs presented. Also included in the donation are the team's needs while on the ground.
- What's Involved With Orientation, Equipping & Team Building?
Since we come from different countries and backgrounds, and many of us have never met before, each Journey begins with an orientation and training time, usually for two days, where several things happen:
- Together, we learn about the Kingdom of God, principles of healing, God’s heart for justice and the poor.
- We learn specific ministry skills like how to effectively heal the sick, how to hear God’s voice and receive words of knowledge.
- We learn the various roles and components of conducting a successful mobile medical clinic.
- We learn about the history and culture of the people to whom we will be ministering.
- Every person has the opportunity to receive impartation prayer from our Journey leaders and fellow team members.
- This is a key time of team building.
