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 by encouraging and serving with our partner communities in Uganda and Rwanda. Our trips are geared towards mutual change by placing relationships at the center of what we do. Relationships change who we are and the way we see the world. Our goal is for participants to go home changed. We also challenge members to think about how the relationships they have made will change the way they live in all areas of their life. Those who travel will be confronted with a radically different lifestyle.
All of our work is implemented by our local staff on the ground. Through Project Based Trips, we have the unique opportunity to empower our in-country staff in Uganda and Rwanda. We can provide encouragement, support, and a new perspective. By your step of faith you can inspire our in country staff to continue on with the difficult and meaningful work at hand. Through stories and experiences, we can share our lives. By the end, we all be more inspired to act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God.

TRANSFORMATION IS A TWO-WAY STREET
The key to doing well during an Immersion Trip is to start with ourselves. There are major values and principles that have helped shape who AsOne Ministries is, these values have to do with mutuality, understanding poverty, theology, and cultural sensitivity. When we begin with ourselves and examining our own poverty and do our best to understand the cultures we are going to be exposed to this begins a transformative work in us. This process leads to sustainable change in ourselves that can radically alter the way we see and participate in the mission of God.
