What is Safari Ministry?
CWCI Safaris reach out and connect with women living in rural and remote places. Safari mission teams encourage believers and also share the gospel message with other people who don’t yet know Jesus.
Each Safari has a team of two women (a Speaker and a Leader) who travel out to the locations. One of the team members may also be a musical soloist, who performs at the different events and locations of the mission trip. Safari Ministry is an exciting work, where CWCI sees many women encouraged in their Christian walk, and others challenged to live closer to God.
National Safaris usually involve the team flying to remote towns, properties and islands around Australia. CWCI Australia networks with other Christian organisations and individuals to provide a Pilot and light aircraft to transport the team. Road transport can also be used.
Regional Safaris are run by the individual Regions. The team travels by road, and often provide access to Christian books and resources for sale.
