COVID-19 UPDATE

Due to the COVID-19 crises, all Bridges of Hope International trips for 2020 will be postponed until it is safe to travel again.
Are you looking for an opportunity to share your life with someone who needs your personal touch? If you’re willing to invest your talents, treasures, and time to reach out to a family, child, or teen who is longing to be significant to someone, then our short-term mission trips may be a perfect opportunity for you. Your passion, your smile, or your life experiences can have a life-changing impact; with a great return. You not only have the privilege of serving others and making new friends, your life is changed in the process! Our cross-cultural mission trips will give you an up close and personal view of those who are living in the cycle of generational poverty. We explore, serve, laugh, cry, connect, learn, and grow. However at the close of our time together, it’s not the end; it’s really the beginning! We are challenged with the reality of seeing the needs, but the question remains: What will we do about it? Bridges of Hope International is committed and compelled to make a difference in Latin America! Building a bridge takes teamwork. You are invited to be a part of the team!
