About This Activity

As many classes prep and fundraise for a senior trip and decide their senior year, the Junior class this year has been called to Kenya, Africa. After much prayer and time spent discussing their senior trip, the juniors will take a mission trip to Africa. The class will be the first in more than 10 years to take a mission trip outside of the country. Partner with Global Village Ministries, they will be a part of a medical and dental trip. All the money they have worked to fundraise will go towards this mission trip and sending our 6 Juniors to have a real experience with God. They will be able to aid those, who would not have a chance to seek medical and dental on their own. Through this experience they will be able to see God first hand work in the people’s lives. As they take the things they’ve learned here at BCA, they will now have a chance to apply to the people in Kenya. On top of the medical and dental, they will be a part of a VBS program for the local children there. It is those basic bible lessons they will teach, that will give the children there a chance to know who God is.

Taking the steps to prepare for a mission trip, the junior class will love your support and prayers during this time. As you know, the 5K Fun Run, Miles for Africa is a fundraiser that will allow them to reach their goal. This is such an amazing opportunity for our students, which we at BCA cannot give. If you would like to be a part of this trip, we strongly encourage you to send donations to the junior class.

We know that God has open the doors for this class to be missionaries in Africa. We ask that you keep them in your prayers as they beginning the planning. They will keep you updated on their fundraising and they thank you for all your support to BCA.
