Is there any value of going on a Golden Oldies short term mission?
Let the proof be in the fruit of what is unfolding.
Since the first Golden Oldies Mission, those team members, and others such as the Archer residents, the NZCMS Families-Youth members, and friends, have all contributed to make a difference to the people and projects we have visited.

Together we have helped to raise over $15,000 towards development projects, donated 450 children’s storybooks that have been distributed to schools and villages, established an education scholarship fund, supported a new kindergarten in a small town to open in 2014, started connecting key people to get laptops and e-learning for rural schools, and after 55-years a rural village is going to officially open a new toilet block for its 300-children school and local church.
The fruit of short term missions in one year!
Not to mention the warmth of friendships that have been established and nurtured.
In such a short time it has been an absolute privilege to be involved in these missions, something that has enriched everyone who has become involved.
