Open your eyes and meet your neighbor through travel to India, Guatemala, or Tanzania. You’ll leave the tourist books behind and make a real connection with people, sharing ideas and meals, shopping at local markets, and learning about new cultures and traditions.

My LPGM trip to India was life changing. I would love for my friends to see how different and special it is there to experience how kind and welcoming the people are. It was an amazing trip!

LPGM Traveler

On LPGM trips, you will walk hand in hand with local Christians doing God’s work, learning from them, supporting them and exploring what God is calling us to do together.

Travel costs vary from country to country. LPGM provides all the arrangements for in-country travel, overnight accommodations, meals and activities. It will be clear what is included in the package price and what might be an out of pocket expense. LPGM provides an itinerary and accompanying daily devotional so that travelers and those at home can pray and reflect together throughout the journey.
