Hannah recently returned from a solo Trek in Brazil:
"My mission was to work at a children’s centre in one of the slums of Belo Horizonte. I’d felt God wanted me to go to Brazil one day, ever since a missionary came to my home church to speak about Latin America, when I was just a little girl. In my second year at uni, the same missionary came to my church! I decided now was the time to pursue the calling God had given me.
I spent a month at the centre, helping out in classes and playing with the children. Spending time with the kids was a real highlight, and the Brazilian people are so friendly and welcoming. It was challenging travelling to a new continent on my own, especially since I didn't speak the language, but I believed God would be with me and he definitely was! The whole experience is something I’ll never forget."

Find out more about our Short Term ministry
WEC International’s Short Term Mission programme is geared to fuel your passion for God through hands-on mission. For a Solo Trek, we aim to match your gifts and time-frame for short-term cross-cultural mission. We will place you alongside an experienced missionary in any one of over 80 countries, where you can serve God, share the good news and grow in your faith. Or you might choose to join a Team Trek: a group of up to ten volunteers, sent to a strategic location for two or three weeks.
Alongside the short term missions, Trek has an internship programme, with placements tailored to your gifts and calling. Internships are based in the UK but may include study and time abroad, and can focus on a huge range of ministries. Resonance Arts also offers Short Term internships in music, drama and visual arts.
WEC Trek (UK) is recognised by Global Connections as operating under the code of best practice in Short Term Mission 2016. Read our FAQs here.
