Mission Trip Dates: June 12 – July 30 — Work/Evangelism
Welcome to Switzerland! You will feel as though you have stepped into a storybook setting when your team views the beautiful snowcapped mountains surrounding the picturesque town near Lake Thun. It will be a welcome contrast from your tent site at the Lord’s Boot Camp!
After commissioning you bus to the Orlando International Airport for a flight to New York‘s JFK In- ternational Airport. A connecting flight across the Atlantic Ocean takes you to Geneva, Switzerland and then a two-hour bus ride takes you to your project in the village of Einigen.
You will partner with Youth With A Mission to help make improvements at their Swiss base as you build a stone wall on the 180 year-old farm. As time permits, you may have the opportunity to do landscaping. Getting to know the staff and ministering at churches in the surrounding towns will be the highlight of your summer.
Housing will be in tents, but hot showers are available. Laundry will be done using a bucket. Sightseeing trips may take you to see many attractions, such as Bern, the capital city and Thun, a medieval town. You may also take a sky lift to see a panoramic view of the valley and Lake Thun. Souvenirs such as Swiss Army knives, chocolate, watches and cuckoo clocks are available for purchase.
Project Expense: $3890 U.S. plus Registration Fee
