Eagles Wings Zambia

January 17 – 30, 2019
Team size: 10

Cost: $3,300


As you may already know, disc golf is a rapidly growing sport, not just in the US but also around the world. A team from Eagles Wings recently installed a 9 hole course in Macha, Zambia. Macha is home to a world-renowned malaria research center as well as a local hospital, which people travel to from many miles around for medical care. Macha is also the home to Push The Rock Zambia.

You may have missed out on that first trip, but do not miss out on this one.  As a team we will design and install an additional 9 holes on the disc golf course, and run the first PDGA event in Zambia.  This will provide an additional tool for the missionaries there to use long-term and bring additional exposure to what they are doing in the country with disc golf. You can read more about ministry in Zambia here: PTR Zambia
Push The Rock Zambia has year round ministry local schools, prisons and orphanages, with most of their ministry taking place on their grounds. The community center built a few years ago is a magnet for people of all ages. Kids come to the grounds every afternoon for all different kinds of activities, including athletic training, homework assistance, board and card games, and English. On Saturdays it is a hot spot for men to gather to watch soccer matches via satellite. The existing 9 hole disc golf course sits on the property adjacent to the community center, giving easy access to people of all ages to hone their skills on a daily basis.

Each member of the team will be involved in the design and construction of the course which will include tee pads, baskets, and signage. Our time in Macha will conclude with a one day C Tier, which will be the first PDGA event in Zambia, and only the second on the continent. Each team member will have the opportunity to participate in the event. While there the team will also spend significant time teaching the sport at the grounds and in the surrounding villages.

We want to enable you to use the gifts, abilities and passions God has given you in disc golf to have an eternal impact on those in Zambia. You will be able to model how a personal relationship with Jesus Christ can positively impact and change every aspect of your life! We believe this experience will deepen your faith and open your eyes to what God is doing in this particular part of the world.

Team training will happen on Thursday, January 17, beginning at 10 am in Emmaus, PA. The team will fly out late that evening and will return from Zambia on January 30 (Specific travels plans for you before and after the trip can be worked out once you are a part of the team).

Team members will be responsible for their travel to and from Emmaus, Pennsylvania where training will take place.  All other trip costs will be covered in the price of the trip including your Eagles Wings gear, a trip to Victoria Falls, and a safari!

We encourage you to pray about being a part of this team. You do NOT want to miss out on this opportunity! If you have any additional questions, please contact Dustin Leatherman at dustin@eagleswingsdiscgolf.org. Otherwise, the next step is to fill out an application by following the links below.
