I’ve always wanted to go to Africa on a mission trip. So far, it hasn’t worked out. And I’m sure that’s true for many people.
But now World Vision has a temporary solution. They’re bringing the mission trip to us (or at least, very close to us.)
Beginning next Sunday, and continuing for a week, The World Vision Experience: AIDS will be Cary, NC, just south of Raleigh.
The Experience is “a 2,500 square foot interactive exhibit that invites visitors to "step into Africa" by hearing, seeing and walking through an African village to personally experience the lives of children affected by AIDS. The stirring audio tour and captivating photography will transport you into the life of an African child and give you a new perspective on the greatest humanitarian crisis of our time... AIDS.”
Tickets are free but I’m betting the experience will be priceless.
More details are here, and I’m going to do my best to take my entire family on a mission trip to Africa next week. Anybody want to tag along?
