Our vision is to build 12 Children’s Villages throughout the country of Zambia to rescue orphans from abuse and poverty and bring wholistic change to a nation in need.

This summer I made my third trip to Lusaka, Zambia with Family Legacy. I was blessed to have my wife, two kids, their spouses, and three grandchildren with me. Family Legacy provides an incredible opportunity to minister to 10 orphaned children. After a week of ministering to them it is then our goal to find sponsors for these kids we have grown to care for so much. Family Legacy then provides excellent school for these kids, school uniforms, a nutritious lunch each day, and the love and caring that every child deserves.

What an opportunity to touch the lives of orphaned children. Going on their mission trips to Lusaka does such wonderful things for the orphan and for the Americans that commit to sharing God's love.

I have been involved with Family Legacy for over 6 years. My wife has traveled to Zambia with them 5 times and I have gone once. They are a truly great organization that is doing wonderful things for children in Zambia. I would have no reservations recommending the organization to anyone.

If you volunteer to go to camp with them, you will leave thinking you are making a difference in the life of a child in Africa, but in reality you will be find the biggest change is in your own life.

My wife and daughter attended Camp Life 2011. They could not stop talking about it. After a month of dragging my feet, I agreed to go with them and our 12 year old son to camp Life 2012. I have never regretted that decision for a second. I had a life experience never to forget, only to repeat (going again 2013). Family Legacy is doing Gods work with the orphans of Zambia. I feel so blessed to be able to participate. To see kids with little hope experience joy and the love of Christ is truly a miracle. I am very thankful for Family Legacy and the impact they are making in my and my families life. We once were blind. Jeff P.

Family Legacy Missions International is the absolute greatest ministry I have ever been a part of. Camp Life is the most joyful and life-changing week of my year and I love the kids there more than anything ever. Family Legacy is an absolute honor to be a part of and such a blessing to my life. I have traveled to Zambia for the past two years in a row and am already registered to go next summer. I am counting down the days until I leave. I thank God everyday for putting such a wonderful ministry in my life.

It is such a great honor to be a volunteer with an organization that combines their passion for serving the orphans of Zambia with intergrity and professionalism. I have had the opportunity to travel to Zambia twice and will be going for a thrid time this summer. What I see is a ministry that is committed to changing the lives of the orphan children in Zambia. It is humbling to be a small part of transforming the lives of children and in turn impacting the communities where they live. Family Legacy is meeting the needs of children in Zambia every day. Their commitment to the health and education of the children while demonstrating God's love to them on a daily basis is making a difference one child at a time. I will continue to partner with this ogranization because I believe so strongly in their mission.

Family Legacy has an amazing ministry! Camp LIFE was by far the greatest trip I have ever been on. You really have to make a leap of faith to go on it and like any foreign mission trip it can be difficult at times. But it is totally worth it! I encourage everyone to go on this mission trip and if you can’t go try to send someone else. It is truly a life changer. I wasn't able to go the past two years but I'm signed up for 2013 and I can't wait!!

I LOVE CAMP LIFE!! This was my 2nd time in Zambia and I felt like I was so much better prepared to work with my kids. The really big advantage of going your second time is you get to work with some of the same kids again. But definitely the highlight of my trip was seeing one of my kids happy and living in the Tree of Life Village. He had reached the point of committing suicide but his discipleship leader intervened and got him moved immediately into the Tree of Life Village. He’s alive and happy! The other awesome opportunity I had this year was going to the Lifeway Christian Academy in Matero. We threw a party for all of our sponsored kids and gave them backpacks filled with things they could use plus a wool blanket and food. We also got to give the school teachers all of the school supplies that had been donated for the school. It was so fun to hear the shouts of the kids as they saw all the new things for their school. Camp LIFE is such an amazing experience!

Camp LIFE is AWESOME!!! Camp LIFE has been the greatest experience of my life. I am a senior in high school and am so blessed to have been able to go a 2nd time. I hope to keep on going! This year I was given six of the same boys that I had last year which made it truly spectacular because I was able to revisit with them and hear how their lives had started to change. The most powerful moment was when my kids prayed over me…I truly felt the Lord working in their lives as well as mine. It is unbelievable to see the impact that we have on these kids. All they want is for someone to love them and hold them and tell them that they aren’t worthless, but they are wanted and they are loved by their Savior and Father. I realized this year that God is changing the world and even if it is one child at a time, he is moving quickly and I am just overjoyed that I have had the opportunity to be a part of His work. Camp LIFE has been such a blessing to my life because there are no distractions and I can truly feel the presence of my Lord.

I was raised in church my entire life, and have gone on more mission trips than I can count. When I heard about Family Legacy and what they do in Zambia, I thought about how great it would be to be able to go and find out first-hand what it is like over there, and what this ministry is doing in the lives of these orphans. My first year, 6 months after my dad passed away, I was scared as to what would happen while i was there. This experience changed my life forever! Those amazing orphans that I got to personally get to know, find out their stories, love on them, etc. were incredible! Family Legacy gave me an opportunity to see God's hands at work through us (Americans) at Camp LIFE and the amazing work they are doing to change the face of Zambia is amazing! Just in the 2 years I have been apart of Camp Life, God has blessed Family Legacy in so many ways! He is growing this organization and I know he has amazing plans for this organization! I don't know where I would be without Family Legacy and all that they do!

I have been on over 40 mission trips over my lifetime, and Camp LIFE was by FAR the most well run, well organized, impactful trip of my life. Our family has been going since 2006, and personally watching the operational excellence, the comprehensively visioned plan, and the overall scope of what Family Legacy is accomplishing in Zambia is unlike anything I have ever seen. Our family is forever changed in the best way possible, and as a person who runs my own large firm, my hat remains off to the Family Legacy team and their exceptional leadership and submission to the Holy Spirit.
