Missions Trip Dates: June 23 – August 14 — Work/Evangelism
Experience an unforgettable summer as you become part of a team to minister to the Baka (Pygmy) people of the Cameroon rainforest. Following training at the Lord’s Boot Camp, you bus to Miami for a flight across the Atlantic Ocean to Paris, France, and on to Yaounde, Cameroon.
From Yaounde you travel via bus over challenging roads for 10-12 hours before reaching your project site in a primitive village nestled in the rainforest. The Baka Pygmies average 4’5’’ in height and have the lifestyle of hunter-gatherers. They are among the oldest inhabitants of Cameroon and have suffered exploitation at the hands of many. Their semi-nomadic lifestyle has remained largely unchanged for hundreds of years; but now education is encouraged in order to improve their way of life.
Your project, in cooperation with Bread For Life Ministry, will be to construct a four-room school. Not only will you assist in meeting the need for education, you may also help with meeting their spiritual need as you proclaim the Gospel by using drama, puppets and music.
You will have the opportunity to shop for jewelry, drums, spear heads, baskets and wood carvings. The team will have an overnight stay in Paris, where you may see the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triumph and the Louvre.
Project Expense: $4990 U.S. plus Registration Fee
