Come trek the paths of the Andes Mountains as you share the Gospel with those residing there.God’s creation will leave you breathless as you view sites such as Mt. Cotopaxi, the world’s highest active volcano. Following Boot Camp, you travel to the Orlando International Airport for a flight across the Caribbean Sea and Panama City, Panama. A connecting flight takes you across the Pacific Ocean to Lima, Peru, before arriving in Quito, the capital city of Ecuador.
You will then bus to the Teen Missions in Ecuador Bible, Missionary & Work (BMW) Training Center, located 8,500’ above sea level, where you will begin your summer adventure. You will share Christ’s love through music, drama and puppets as you backpack through the mountains. During your free time, you can enjoy playing with the children. After your week-long trek, you will help with renovation projects back at the BMW property. Housing will be in tents while hiking and in dorms while at the base. Bathing and laundry varies by location.
Be sure to bring plenty of winter clothing to keep warm. Your sightseeing day will take you to El Mitad del Mundo where you can literally be in two places at once, as you stand across the Equator with one foot in the Northern Hemisphere and the other in the Southern. You may also try your hand at bartering for items such as alpaca wool clothing and blankets, jewelry, dolls, leather goods and paintings.
