The team is headed to Choma, Zambia in July of 2024 to spend time with the children and staff at Lulangilo.  We invite you to partner with us as we pray for this team of missionaries as they prepare for this trip.

Each team member is required to raise funds to cover the trip expenses, the most expensive of which is airfare.  You can participate in the team’s fundraising through the can/bottle drive, bracelet sales the weekend of April 21, 2024, or by donating directly using one of the missionary’s links below.

We are excited for this team as prepare to carry the love of Christ to the ends of the earth.

Now through the end of May, your returnables can be dropped off at the Redemption Center in Big Lots plaza on Routes 5 & 20 in Canandaigua (behind Taco Bell).  When you bring them in, just let them know you are donating the proceeds to Crosswinds Zambia and they will credit us with the proceeds from your returnables.
