Mission Trip Dates: June 23 – August 14 — Work/Evangelism
Head “Down Under” to the rugged bush of southern Queensland and Australia‘s Outback for a summer of serving the Lord. Spend your time completing a number of work projects that will help in the expansion of a mission training center and youth camp.
There will not be a shortage of work from renovations and roofing, to painting and block work. Many days you will wake up with a view of kangaroos, koalas, wallabies and goannas. Any Aussie animals you don’t see on the property you may have an opportunity to see at the world-famous Australian Zoo, founded by the late Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin.
You may also have an opportunity to evangelize at an aboriginal community and attend their ceremonies with traditional singing and dancing, as well as evangelize at the local parks along the crystal clear Sunshine Coast which is at the tip of the Great Barrier Reef. Housing will be in dorms, with hot showers available; laundry will be done using buckets. Opportunities to interact with Aussie young people will be provided as you minister in local churches with youth groups and at public schools using drama, music, puppets and testimonies.
You will have the opportunity of a lifetime as you visit the historic Town of 1770, where there is snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef—the largest in the world. You will see tropical fish, sea turtles and beautiful coral. A visit to Noosa Heads Beach, a surfer’s paradise, will provide an afternoon of relaxation and shopping for all things Aussie: boomerangs, sheepskins, Akubra hats, opals and “Snowy River” coats.
Project Expense: $4390 U.S. plus Registration Fee
