Team members experience a battery of emotions when they return home after a successful mission trip.

They are happy to be home and grateful for the modern conveniences and comfortable lifestyle we typically take for granted.

They are proud and sometimes even a little surprised that they had the mechanical and tactile ability to install a solar array.

They are humbled by the hardships their new friends from a distant land experience and happy for the new friends they’ve made.

And, of course, they experience an emotion one can’t readily define – one that only comes when you’ve changed the lives of a whole village.

SonLight Power’s unique model pairs physical light with spiritual light, applying solar power and fellowship in sustainable ways. Our goal is to provide a physical reminder of God’s love and to reach out with a message of hope and faith.

At the end of each installation, we typically host a community gathering that includes games for children and brings our team members into contact with all those who will enjoy the fruits of their labor. We meet people where they are, demonstrating friendship and fellowship in a relaxed setting.

Many of our team members tell us it is the highlight of their week.
