What to Expect on a Mission Trip to Gulu

  • Highlights include lively worship, beautiful smiles, and compelling stories of overcoming incredible adversity.
  • Teams vary in size, and trips are usually 12-14 days in length.
  • The team flies into Entebbe and spends the night in a local guesthouse. The following day, after exchanging money and gathering supplies, the team travels by van to Gulu. Depending on traffic, the trip is anywhere from 6-9 hours.
  • For the past few years, teams have been staying at the Iron Donkey. Accommodations are rustic but clean. Food is delicious and very suited to American tastes.
  • Teams typically participate in worship on Sundays, and usually people from the team preach, sing and share testimonies.
  • Monday through Friday is reserved for work. Assignments depend on the team’s objectives, but could include construction, leadership training, children’s activities, women’s activities, or business training.
  • There will be time during the week to grab a milkshake, visit the local market, possibly take a site seeing trip out to Fort Patiko for some history and hiking, visit a few homes, and enjoy local cuisine, which usually includes plantains, fresh fruit, potatoes, chicken, and cabbage.
  • Toward the end of the trip, the team usually travels to Murchinson Fall’s National Park for a one day safari (added expense) and then returns to Entebbe for the flight home.
