Catch the bigger picture of what our in-country work looks and feels like by participating in an Immersion or Project Based Trip with AsOne Ministries. Our immersion trips give team members the opportunity to join in our work and generously love, serve, listen and encourage our partner communities in Uganda and Rwanda. Immersion trips challenge team members to embrace new relationships and focus their lives on Christ, the transformer of human culture. It challenges our rhythms of life and creates opportunities to re-orient their role in the mission of God- both home and away. We also challenge members to rethink how western civilization can engage in cross cultural relationships and mission.
All of our work is implemented by our indigenous partners on the ground. Through Project Based Trips, we have the unique opportunity to empower our in-country staff and their work. With our willing hands, we can lighten their load. Through our compassion, we can provide skills and resources necessary to remove obstacles that allow our work and staff to flourish. With our faith, we can give them hope and joy to increase their strength. Through stories and experiences, we can share our lives. By the end, we will feel like we have a new family and a new home, and we will be inspired to reciprocate their radical faith and pursuit of justice and transformation in our own communities.

TRANSFORMATIONAL PRACTICES START WITH US
The key to doing well during an immersion experience is to start with ourselves. If we wish to see humility, honesty, empowerment, and mutual respect become hallmarks of the Church worldwide, we must begin by embodying these values in our own lives. Then and only then can we, with integrity, ask the same of others. Use these training resources to help guide you and your team to experience transformation that will endure beyond the short duration of an immersion experience. For each session, simply begin by watching the video or reading the article. Continue by reading the content provided and use the questions to prompt discussion.
