"Going to Desert Rain was an incredibly transformative experience. I heard God speak to my heart in many ways and saw how deeply burdened his heart is for people of all nations and religious backgrounds.”

Rachelle, 2023

Why go on the Desert Rain mission trip?

God is moving in this part of the world, where many have never heard the gospel.

While the landscape can be dry, the culture is rich with history, flavour, tradition, and hospitality. Many people have been disillusioned by religion, yet they remain unsatisfied when they turn to secularism.

Most have never developed a friendship with a follower of Jesus Christ. Many belong to unreached people groups.

Come learn who these people are, how God is revealing himself, and how you can respond to the Holy Spirit at work. We call this place “Desert Rain” because of what we see God doing here: 

Behold, I am doing a new thing;
    now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?
I will make a way in the wilderness
    and rivers in the desert.

Isaiah 43:19

What happens in Desert Rain?

You’ll be living with a team and interacting with a different culture.

Hospitality will be significant. You’ll accept and receive hospitality, and you’ll learn about its significance in this part of the world.

Following Jesus in this highly relational context will bring both challenges and great joys. We want to help you grow through it all. 

Before the trip, participants will be trained and coached on topics like:

  • fundraising
  • cultural expectations 
  • safety and security
  • ministry methods

During the trip, a typical weekly schedule will include: 

  • intentional time spent with local friends
  • team-building
  • Bible study and prayer
  • cultural learning 
  • mentorship from P2C-Students staff
  • rest and adventure

The trip will conclude with a time of debrief, encouragement, and training on next steps.

How will this trip deepen roots and widen horizons?

Deepen your roots as you:

  • Come alongside what God is already doing in Desert Rain 
  • Rely on the Holy Spirit daily as you learn, make friends, and minister in a new culture
  • Live full time in a community focused on knowing and sharing Jesus

Widen your horizons as you:

  • Grow in developing genuine friendships with people of a different worldview
  • Experience how each culture reflects God in unique ways
  • Learn to share the gospel in a relational way
