Purpose of short term missions to LR:
Our houseparents and workers are on the front lines every day transforming the lives of the kids at Love Revolution. We believe that through the power of love, the cycle of poverty can be broken in their lives. Do you have a group from your church, school or other organization that wants to partner with us by serving at Love Revolution Children’s Home? Through short term mission trips your group can build relationships, learn from and encourage the children and those serving at LR. The process of nurturing the spiritual, social, emotional, educational and physical health of the kids' lives is a long-term commitment. Your STM team can partner with us in that journey by serving on the ground for 1-2 week trip.
An estimated $1.6 billion is spent every year on short term mission trips. In facilitating our small part of those annual STM trips, we have a responsibility to be good stewards of those resources. It is our prayer that through your trip, you will partner with Love Revolution in long-term prayer support, monetary support, advocacy and encouragement. We hope that what you see and learn on your trip, will give you a new found inspiration for poverty alleviation and help for at-risk children in your home community.
