What to expect Volunteering oversees can be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life, opening up your horizons and expanding your world view. Poverty = Brokenness We believe that poverty is a breakdown of wholeness in any area of life and whilst we often work to alleviate the ‘material poverty’ in the lives of our partners, we so often find that we come away having received more than we can give as they alleviate our ‘social poverty’. The experience is so wonderfully, mutually beneficial as we learn from each other and all become the richer. - You can expect to have your heart broken, in the best of ways- You can expect to be challenged and pushed out of your comfort zone- You can expect to see miracles and quite possibly to meet with God in a new and powerful way- You can expect to find talent, skills and gifting you didn't realise you had- You can expect to return having made deep and meaningful relationships and finally...- You can expect to have stories that will stay with you for the rest of you life. In Links our aim is to ensure that everyone gets the most out of this exchange, that as our volunteers invest through their time and knowledge that they also receive and are challenged by the heroes we are partnering with. Though it may sound cliche, we know these experiences are life changing and enrich people’s futures in so many ways. Whether the next step for you is joining a short term trip, taking a gap year to serve or perhaps moving out longer term we would encourage you to take that next step. Your life will never be the same!
