Meet an orphaned generation, recovering from war and hungry for the Gospel, as you serve the Lord this summer in the newly-formed nation of Southern Sudan. Be a part of the first Teen Missions team to bring hope to the people of Yei, who endured unrest for over three decades.
After Commissioning, the team flies from Orlando, to JFK International Airport in New York. Your next flight crosses the Atlantic Ocean to Paris, France, before continuing across the Mediterranean Sea, and the Sahara Desert to Nairobi, Kenya. A connecting flight takes you to Entebbe International Airport, located on Lake Victoria.
From Entebbe, you take a nine-hour bus ride to Koboko and spend a night at the Teen Missions Upper Nile base before crossing the border into Sudan. Your project will be to construct housing for the Teen Missions New Hope base in Yei. Housing will be in tents at the nearby YWAM base and bathing and laundry will be done in buckets. It will be a joy to spend time sharing Christ through music, puppets, drama and testimonies to these former refugees.
Embrace this unique culture as you get to meet one of the world’s tallest tribal groups, the Dinka, who grow up to seven feet and more. Following your project, you will take a safari at the Kabarega National Park along the Nile River near the Murchison Falls.
Here you will experience the African wild and be able to see the “Big Five” (leopard, rhinoceros, elephant, cape buffalo and lion) that dominate the African jungles. Do not miss shopping for souvenirs such as carvings, handcrafted drums, jewelry and African clothing.
Estimated Project Expense: $4690 U.S. plus $30 Registration Fee
