You're invited to join Quiet Hour Ministries on a mission trip to Rivera, Uruguay! We are excited to partner with the Uruguay Union of Churches and support the work they are doing to share Jesus in some of the communities in and around Rivera. We can’t wait to serve the people of Rivera with you!
Your mission with Quiet Hour Ministries in Uruguay will be to share how the love and grace of Jesus has the power to change lives. You will be completely immersed in a new culture, serving alongside a team of local church members to bring hope to the precious people in their community.
Each day will bring you into contact with different people, each one a child of God. Yet many of them don't know Jesus in the same way you do. Your team will get the opportunity to serve them by participating in the facilitation of a free basic health screening, which includes eye testing and the provision of reading glasses where needed. You may also be able to participate in a construction project.
In the evenings, the team will split up to hold evangelistic meetings where team members will take on different roles including preaching our My Friend Jesus sermon series, sharing some basic health principles, or helping to facilitate a children's program. All materials are provided in advance for you to become familiar with, so don't worry if you've never done any of this before!
You will return home with the joy of creating new friendships and building partnerships. You will be a witness to the power of the Holy Spirit working in the lives of your team members and in the people of Uruguay.
Your team member donation allows for you to be on the team without any extra expense for airfare, double-room lodging, food, or onsite transportation. In addition, your contribution also increases the impact of the project by helping provide on-site outreach resources, transportation, equipment and more. Because of your donation, the people of Rivera will have the opportunity to meet Jesus.
All donations must be made by the deadlines specified below or volunteers may face an airfare surcharge. Flights departing from areas outside of major international airports in the continental U.S. may also require an airfare surcharge. We consider all funds received for the mission trip as donations to the project, and in order to protect the tax deductibility of your gifts, all donations are non-refundable.
Minimum donation amounts do not cover any overnight layover hotel charges, luggage fees not included with airfare, departure taxes/arrival fees, visas/passports/tourist cards or any costs that may arise while traveling to and from the mission location.
QHM is not responsible for costs associated with volunteers missing their flights or not being able to travel due to outdated passports or other documents or delays due to testing positive for COVID-19.
