This is not a team for the faint of heart! Share the power of God’s love with thousands who live on mighty Mt. Kilimanjaro—Africa’s tallest mountain known by the natives as the Roof of Africa, towering 19,340 feet above sea level.
After completing Boot Camp, you bus to Orlando International Airport and fly to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia via Washington D.C. and Rome, Italy. You then fly to the Kilimanjaro International Airport in Tanzania. A 30-minute bus ride takes you through Hai to Embokoyi in Siha District located at the foot of this snow-capped mountain. This will be home base for this rugged team.
For half your project time, you will continue pioneering construction work on the Teen Missions in Tanzania property. You will experience daily glimpses of the sunset at Mt. Meru, Tanzania’s second highest mountain. Wearing full-frame backpacks, you will spend the remainder of your time hiking to remote villages. The team will share the love of Jesus through daily open-air presentations using music, puppets drama, and through evening showings of the JESUS Film and the Teen Missions film, Zawadi/Amawale, all in the native Kiswahili language.
Housing will be in tents; laundry and bathing will be done using a bucket. Brush up on your bartering skills! You will need them during a visit to Arusha where you may purchase wooden and soapstone carvings, Masai beaded jewelry, traditional African clothing, and blue tanzanite jewelry found only in Tanzania.
Note: Members of this team should be in good physical health and free of respiratory difficulties.
