You’ll be well aware that our Government has decided to raise the COVID-19 Alert to Level 4 as of midnight Wednesday 25th March, to safeguard the health and best interests of our nation. As a church, let’s all continue to honour our leaders and pray for them as they face such a challenging season.
Part of the Government’s response is that New Zealanders are advised not to travel overseas at this time. The New Zealand Government has raised its travel advice to “do not travel” – the highest level – regardless of destination.
It is also urging any New Zealanders currently travelling overseas to return home while commercial options remain available.
There are extensive border restrictions in place around the world and increasingly limited transport options.
As a result, LIFE Global Impact has put all trips on hold for the foreseeable future. Please still register your interest for a team and we’ll stay in touch around developments as the situation improves.

WHERE WE GO
After starting our partnership with One Heart last year and through Legacy, funding the building of a new children’s home, we loved taking our first trip to Kenya in 2019. The focus of this trip was to bring God’s love, leadership and hands on ministry to the children, One Heart Staff & surrounding communities in both Kenya and Uganda.
Ministry & Leadership: Dates TBC for 2020
We are believing for another team in 2020 who desire to be used by God to speak life, bring hands on help, and believe for a move of God as we engage with local churches and with the amazing Turbo community.
One Heart Building Challenge: Dates TBC for 2020
Focusing on building and renovating facilities which provide accommodation and schools to orphaned and abandoned children in Turbo, Kenya. Based in the new Soy homestead, you will live and work in a typical Kenyan village.
A long term partner is New Life Fellowship in Phnom Penh, which is a church passionate about reaching the local community. Each trip has various focuses which include kid’s ministry, building, teaching and discipleship. We have worked alongside New Life Fellowship for many years now and it is always an honour to travel to Cambodia and to partner with a Kingdom-spirited church.
In 2019 we had two trips to Cambodia in partnership with New Life Fellowship. Both trips contained an amazing opportunity to run age group specific church and outreach events, along with the training and investment into New Life’s ministry teams. This was an incredible chance to make a significant difference in these generations, along with equipping and inspiring the local church teams.
Dates TBC for 2020
We had our first team travel to The Philippines last year, working in partnership with a church planted by missionaries in Lumambong Village the team helped build and restore the church – repairing walls and also extending it to coincide with the recent growth of the church congregation. The team then met with Inspire Church which is making a huge impact in the city of Manila. The trip was a great success and we hope to return this year.
Dates TBC for 2020
We also partner with JF Ministries who take multiple teams to Nepal each year, and as a ministry have been impacting Nepal for many years. These teams have a big focus on training and ministry and always see amazing miracles. In just one trip in 2019, the team trained an unprecedented 1,600 people over four packed ‘Schools of Healing’, where more than 500 people received healing.
JF Ministries: October 2020
