May Serve team embarks on trip to Swaziland

This year's May Serve team gathers for a group photo. A team of 17 George Fox students will be in Swaziland in May to conduct nearly four weeks of service as part of the university’s May Serve program.

The students will work with AIM Ministries, an interdenominational missions organization that focuses on discipleship, prayer and developing relationships in helping the world’s poor. The team will reach out to orphans at various care points. The care points, set up by local pastors, provide food and education for needy children. In addition, team members may have a chance to engage with adults who are in the last stages of AIDS.

Currently, Swaziland nationals and missionaries are ministering in the country through a medical clinic, soccer ministry and educational resources. The George Fox team will work in conjunction with AIM to find the best outlet for ministry.

Now in its 21st year, the George Fox May Serve program allows students to spend a month in volunteer service in cross-cultural settings. Previous May Serve trips have gone to Thailand, Ukraine, Brazil, India, Cuba, Jamaica, Romania and the Philippines.

George Fox also sponsors weeklong service trips during Christmas break and spring break.
