Maria's Big House of Hope Trip

Come and see what hope looks like.

Travel with us to Maria’s Big House of Hope in Luoyang, China and experience first-hand what it looks like to answer God’s call to care for orphans.

Using our exclusive curriculum we’ll explore your unique response to this call as we take a deeper look at the realities of the orphan crisis and how you can become part of the solution.

Students will spend the majority of this 10 day trip at Maria’s Big House of Hope, a six-story medical care center that provides care to waiting children with acute medical and special needs. You will have the opportunity to come alongside the nannies to play and interact with the children.

We will also explore local markets in Luoyang, visit the Great Wall and Tiananmen Square in China’s capital city of Beijing, and spend time shopping at the Pearl Market.
