Hannah recently returned from a solo short term trip 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."

WEC’s Short Term programme is geared to fuel your passion for God through a hands-on experience.
For a Solo Trek, we aim to match your gifts and time-frame for a short-term cross-cultural faith-filled adventure with God. 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.
Alongside Solo Trek, we encourage Church Teams to organise and run your own short term cross-cultural trip. Feel free to get in touch if you would welcome some tips to get you started.
