Trip Focus:The Creek has been sending teams to Sierra Leone since 2009 focusing in three primary areas. The Bombali School for the Blind seeks to meet the temporal and spiritual needs of the students and staff while striving to become fully sustainable. In a partnership with New Life with Limbs, The Creek sends a group to fit local amputees in Makeni with custom prosthetics. It is our vision to use these opportunities to create disciples and plant a church in Makeni.
Team Leader: James Goff, Jr.
