Greece/Bulgaria Sports | Teen Missions Trip

Painting

Teens make a difference

June 13 — July 31

Prepare for an unforgettable summer of serving the Lord on this missions trip as you train at the Lord’s Boot Camp to share the Gospel with Bulgarian and Roma youth. Using sports as a ministry, your team will participate in soccer and volleyball scrimmages sharing the Gospel during “half-time” presentations and building friendships before and after games. You will also help paint the classrooms on the property.

Location:

Your summer will be spent in the village of Razlogpirin, Bulgaria, located in the Rhodope Mountains.

Sightseeing/Souvenirs:

Souvenirs such as baskets, leather goods, pottery and T-shirts can be purchased in the local market. On your return to Florida for Debrief, you will have an overnight in London where you may take the “Tube” (London’s famous subway system) into the city to see such sights as Westminster Cathedral, Big Ben and Buckingham Palace.

Housing:

Housing while in Bulgaria is in classrooms and showers are available; laundry will be done using a bucket.

Travel:

After completing Boot Camp, your missions trip will begin with a bus ride to Orlando International Airport for a flight across the Atlantic Ocean to London, England. A connecting flight then takes you across the English Channel, Swiss Alps and the Adriatic Sea before arriving in Thessalonica, Greece. Your journey will take you through this biblcally-rich city, located on the beautiful shores of the Aegean Sea and named after Alexander the Great’s sister (Thessaloniki). Here you will board a bus for a three-hour ride through the northern farmlands of Greece dotted with olive trees—crossing through Macedonia, the location of Alexander the Great’s palace—through the Rhodope Mountains and on to the village of Razlogpirin, Bulgaria (Note: Florida Debrief)

Contributions Equal To: $3890 U.S. plus Registration Fee
