Amidst the Craziness of Life, Can You Serve in a Meaningful Way?

We are women, beautifully made in the image of God to do good works! In today's world, it can be difficult to find time to do the good we are capable of doing. Work and family commitments consume our day and leave little time to serve in a meaningful way.

Like a lot of women, you have probably participated in minstry for women and have been left wondering if your full potential has been realized.

Can there be a mission trip for women that shows your strength as a woman?

Yes You Can!

Amor Founder, Gayla Cooper Congdon, created the Women of Strength Impact Trip for women from all around the world to come together and build a home alongside a family in South Africa. Not only is a complete home built, but culture is shared through story telling, cooking, crafts and dancing. The history of Apartheid in South Africa is taught by those who experienced it. We minister alongside pastors and their churches in the township of Botleng. 

Ultimately, we show that when women come together and serve together, everyone is stronger.

What Women are Saying

"We did build two houses, but we also built so much more. We built relationships, we learned about their culture and not to be judgmental on issues that we couldn’t possibly understand. Above all, we built good friendships between all of us who came on this amazing trip, sharing the highs and the lows. All in all it was an experience I will treasure and I’m sure there is more to come."
Sandie Potts, United Kingdom
"Mums, be prepared to discover a strength in your daughter that you may never have seen, when you step back, surrender her to God, and let her shine. Throughout the trip, a strength grew within her and she found her voice and stood firm. She was able to see that regardless of gender and age, a person can be a world changer and have an impact on the lives of others."
Danni Brown, Australia
"For me, this trip means a whole lot more than just a mother-daughter time. This trip means my daughter and I not only have the opportunity to serve alongside dozens of women from around the globe, but alongside each other - and this in itself just brings a smile to my face."
Chippo Makwakwa, United States
