Very occasionally Open Doors has unique opportunities for specific travellers. The most regular special trips that we run are Women to Women trips. Recognising that sometimes sisters can offer each other the deepest and most healing comfort, we aim to send women to meet with, encourage and pray for sisters who are mourning or just struggling with the trials of raising a family in the midst of persecution. We also have rare opportunities for people with specific skills to share their experiences and advice with their Christian family abroad.
Often God is equipping us so that he can send us out. He needs us to be willing go and use the gifts he has particularly given us. Don't let your gifts go to waste!
"I came back a different person; a person with a heart for the lost, broken and poor; a person who could make a difference; a person ready to step out of the boat and play my part." - Rhonda
