Remote and rugged best describes this summer missions trip to Madagascar, “The Island Lost in Time”, located off the southeastern coast of Africa. Your project is to continue construction on the 90’x150’ BMW building. At this time, the classes are being taught under a thatched-roof, open-sided building. This is the only Bible School in the area and there is no other program like Teen Missions for youth in the community.
June 24 – August 15
Vangaindrano, Madagascar is located on the southeast coast, approximately 500 mikes from the capital, Antananarivo.
The team will drive through the Ranomafana National Park, established to protect rare species of flora and fauna and the lemur, all native to Madagascar. Jewelry, woodcarvings and hand-embroidered cloth are a few of the unique souvenirs you may barter for when you stop in Ambositra, a town known for its wood carvings. Following your project, you spend a day in Paris for sightseeing, including the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame.
Housing will be in tents while in Madagascar. Bathing and laundry will be done using your buckets.
Following training at the Lord’s Boot Camp, you bus to the Miami International Airport for a flight across the Atlantic Ocean to Paris, France. Your flight then continues across the Mediterranean Sea, Sahara Desert, the Equator and the Mozambique Channel, before arriving in Antananarivo. By truck, you will travel two days and 500 miles south over hills, through valleys and mountainous countryside. During your journey, you overnight near the Ranomafana National Park, established to protect rare species of flora and fauna and the lemur, all native to Madagascar. You continue south along the Indian Ocean coast to Vangaindrano. From Vangaindrano, it is a short 10-mile ride to the Teen Missions in Madagascar BIBLE, MISSIONARY & WORK (BMW) Training Center, located on top of a mountain.
