Come to Africa
We all have been blessed by the Lord through the time, resources, and talents we enjoy today. Now, it’s time to put the blessings and gifts God has given us and put them to good use.
Blessman International is proud to offer our volunteers a unique service experience in the form of Africa mission trips. These mission trips give team members the opportunity to serve children, families and adults in South Africa through the sharing of time and talents. The impact made on these mission trips often ripple for months and years to come. No act of love and service is too small to make a difference.
Those interested in joining us on a mission trip to Africa do not need to have previous experience or professional training. Our program is open to all those who wholeheartedly wish to serve others and our loving God. The only requirement we look for in our participants is a passion for service and a desire to share their love for Christ with others.
We are proud to offer two different types of Africa mission trips:
Our short-term mission trips last for 13 days. These short-term missions occur frequently throughout the calendar year. Participants of our short-term missions have the opportunity to interact with the local community through various outreach programs spearheaded by Blessman International and the African Church.
During the closing days of the mission trip, participants have the opportunity to visit Shikwaru, our ministry partner’s safari game lodge, and participate in a photo safari. A Big Five Game Safari adventure with Entabeni Safaris is also available to those interested, as is a world-class golf course at Legend Resorts.

Volunteers who feel they are called by the Lord for a greater purpose are free to sign up for our long-term mission trip to Africa. This mission trip requires a commitment of staying in South Africa for nine months as an ambassador of God’s love. During the course of the mission, our Ambassadors immerse themselves in the local community, helping out with outreaches and ministry events, as well as provide support to the South African Church.
