Come to the heart of Cherokee Nation in Oklahoma to serve with the Native Americans at a local orphanage, soup kitchens and shelters, heavy and light construction projects, and even Vacation Bible School opportunities! You may be familiar with a journey now familiarly called "The Trail of Tears "; where the Native Americans were relocated from the SE part of the US in the 1800’s, undergoing perilous travel, many losing their lives along the way.

We are located on the NE corner of OK; ten miles away from the AR line, in Siloam Springs.

Our mission trip to Oklahoma was only 5 short days but we gained a lifetime of valuable experience from our time there. Not only were we able to reach out to the people of the community and help meet the needs through Chris's love, but they also taught us important lessons to grow from spiritually. Planning our trip with We Go Global was very beneficial. Their team helped us every step of the way and they were an incredible blessing to each of us.
