The Luke 24 Journey is a personal journey within a team setup. We focus on hearing God’s voice and live by faith and obedience. As we travel through the mountains or the desert there may be an opportunity to minister to or serve people. The Luke 24 journey is unique in the sense that it doesn’t have a fixed or planned program beforehand. As we journey together we ask and trust God to guide us in our daily walk with him. Our desire through the Luke 24 Journey is that people would receive or confirm a clear calling and be commissioned to be Disciple Makers wherever they may find themselves in the future.
The Luke 24 Journey will start with teaching and input through a biblical and chronological teaching that focuses on Jesus through the Old and New Testament. (Luke 24:27). Then we will also discover together our Identity and Destiny in Christ. (Luke 24:31-35) It is also part of the journey that we will equip participants in order to hear the voice of God and minister to others. Thereafter there will be an outreach to apply what has been learned. (Luke 24:47-49)
It is our desire to create an opportunity where participants can have an Emmaus experience, as in Luke 24. This will be done through various teachings, experiences, and connecting with locals.
Participants need to be at a point in their lives where they are prepared for significant changes in their walk with Christ. We expect participants to be team players who submit to the authority of the team leaders. It is also important for participants to know that there could be times of extensive traveling to potentially rural areas where we will work with cultures that could be significantly different than our own.
Participants should be generally healthy, able to cope with much traveling, should be able to do a day hike (carry a day pack), and should not have any major dietary or medicinal needs (please inform us of any such needs during the application process as it may determine acceptance or not).
Accommodation could be a combination of dormitory style or tent camping. You will be sharing a room or tent most nights during the Luke 24 Journey.
Food will be basic but healthy meals. Everything you will need (unless you have special dietary needs – please inform us during the application process) will be provided, but the preparation of meals will be the responsibility of team members.
Please plan to arrive on 17 September 2024 in Windhoek. On the 17th of September, an airport pickup will be provided by OM. If they arrive any earlier it is the participants' responsibility to organise transport to Windhoek from the airport and also organise their own accommodation until the 5th of September. The outreach will start from Windhoek.
It is the SOLE responsibility of each participant to research the visa requirements for their nationality to visit Namibia. MOST nationalities however are able to arrive at the Namibian port of entry and receive up to a 90-day tourist Visa free of charge.
