This January 28 through February 4 join Karen and myself, plus Gary and Lisa Black, on a life-changing vision trip to Nsoko, Swaziland.

be exposed to the devastation and beauty of Africa. Swaziland, a
nation of a million people, now has highest percentage of orphans in
the world. It is desperate for help and the children of Nsoko are among
the most needy. By going to them, you can make a difference and your
life will be impacted forever.

How Nsoko got started
Lisa relates the story: “One day my husband Gary was showing some
of the World Racers an area an hour and half from our home, when they
stumbled upon a group of starving children. They had not eaten in
weeks, and the grandmother that was trying to care for them was beside
herself with grief. She told us she never stopped praying that God
would hear her prayer, and send someone to help the children.
The children in this area all have a story. Some are double
orphans, meaning both parents have died, some as young as 5 are the
oldest living member in the household, and struggle to care for their
siblings. The poverty is overwhelming, the number of very small
children fending for themselves is heart-wrenching, and the rate of
HIV/AIDS affecting every age group of this country is mind-blowing. Yet
the vision and hope are inspiring.”
What we’ll do
When the church of America links hands with the church of
Africa, miracles begin to happen, for everyone. You will experience the
beauty of the land and it’s people, and be changed forever. We will
start our days with prayer, and then go to minister by feeding the
children, playing with them, holding them, praying for them, teaching
them, and singing with them.
We will minister healing to the GoGos and encourage them in their
daily lives. We will see the community center and the site of the
children’s village you will help build. If you are a doctor or a nurse,
you can provide medical care out of our new clinic. We will enjoy
genuine African worship and meet the people of Nsoko. You will hear
their stories and realize that they are no different than you – they
have dreams; they love their children, and life has cost them more than
they could pay.
We’ll also spend a few days meeting and ministering alongside a team of World Racers (the team that Karen and I coach) and will see what a lifestyle of radical abandonment looks like.
Where we’ll stay

Nisela Farms,
in the LaMatata Guest house, is where we’ll be staying. We are
fortunate to partner with the owners of this beautiful game preserve
just a few miles from Nsoko.
Lions, impala, ostriches, and warthogs
wander just a few yards outside our restaurant. One or two afternoons
we’ll go on a safari. Breakfast and Dinner will be served there. Gary
and I will teach in the mornings and John Kale will lead worship.
Please join us! For more details, go to this web site.

Some of you need to scout this out as an opportunity for your church to engage with orphans and AIDS in a meaningful way.

others of you, it’s just time for you. If you think you might be
interested, please put your name down here in the comment section below
so we can contact you.

Or, if you have friends you feel need to go, let me know that as well.

  • Our friend Lanny Richardson just emailed us about this trip. We are very interested in Swaziland. Please send us some info!

  • Seth I would love to get some more info on the trip. I am a mom of two beautiful boys and a wife of a great husband. My family has been vigorously getting involved with a few ministries that are doing incredible things in Africa. I am anxious to go to see things first hand and i believe that God is telling me that now is the time to take that next step. Please write back when you can so that I can see what we can do.
    Thank You

  • Seth,
    Gary and I are seriously entertaining the idea of going to Swaziland along side of you. Stephanie is encouraging and hoping this will work out for us, not only to see what the world racers see, but to open our eyes and hearts to the people she deeply cares about in Swazi. Send us some info on the trip. We’ve not traveled overseas before, so having someone leading us sounds VERY appealing! Thanks!

  • Seth, I am really intrigued by this and will be praying that God will open the doors for myself and (hopefully) my wife to go. I’ve been looking for something to jar me into the reality that God’s called me to; this may just be it. We’d have some obstacles to work aroundfinances, what to do with our soon-to-be-one year old, work/vacation timebut I’m confident that the Lord will provide for all of that in His time if He’s wanting us there.

    In the meantime, I’d love some more information on this. Thanks!

  • Seth, I just happened upon this and realized you will be seeing theworldracers. My daughter Jess will be among that group. Oh how I would love to go, not only to see what these young people are doing but to learn more about what I might be able to bring back home to help these people. God is tugging at my heart… I would love more information, when we would be leaving and coming home, and of course the biggy… COST. Plese tell me more… I also want to thank you for all the ministering and all the comments you and your wife so generously give to this squad. How wonderful to meet you two and get to know more about you and AIMS. Thanks so much, and God Bless, Brooksie Edquist

  • Seth, I forgot to mention I am an Occupational Therapist working in pediatrics. Not sure what I could help with but most likely there would be needs… thanks

  • Hi Seth,

    I applied to go on the World Race last year and in the end I felt God wasn’t calling me to go. I am not sure if God is calling me on this trip either but I would like more information. If He calls me I will go. I am a videographer by trade so if my skills can be of any use I would be happy to help out, but I don’t have a camera.

  • Kelsey said that the Lord has called her to Swaziland. Please send her information about this trip.

    Thanks so much and God bless!

  • Hey Seth!

    This sounds amazing! My fiance and I are really excited about the possibility to go and are praying about it. May I get some more info on the details & such??

    Hey Seth!

    I think this is an amazing opportunity to take the good news to a real and needed place… I’m hoping that God allow me to go, just because I’m not from the States or live there, but I’ve participate with some of the trips and I would really love to go… May I get some more info about it? I’m leaving in Colombia, South America, but I think that everyone can get involved to help people to get closer to God…

    Thank you and God bless you on this amazing serving place!

I'm motivated to join God in his global reclamation project. He's on the move, setting his sons and daughters free from their places of captivity. And he's partnering with those of us who have been freed to go and free others.
