The Bible shows that God desires men and women who seek justice and speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves (Isaiah 1:17; Proverbs 31:9) and so one of the purposes of the mission is to provide an environment in which participants can gain not just an intellectual understanding of this, but a deep, heart felt realisation of God's anger at injustice and an apprehension of the great blessing of the justice system we enjoy in our own land.

A second major aim of the summer mission is to encourage participants to mature in their faith and develop a new closeness in their relationship with the Lord, resulting from a different level of reliance and trust brought about by the cross-cultural experience (i.e. embracing East African culture as opposed to maintaining our Western lifestyles and habits whilst in East Africa) and stepping out of comfort zones.
