Cameroon Foot Washing — Teen Trip

Mission Trip to CameroonCameroon Mission Trip  Foot Washing

Ashya! Welcome to Cameroon where you will make a difference in the lives of orphans by providing them with shoes for school and everyday wear. After Boot Camp, you bus to the Orlando International Airport for a flight to Douala, Cameroon via Washington, D.C. and Brussels, Belgium. From Douala, your team will bus north to the Teen Missions in Cameroon Bible, Missionary & Work Training Center in Nsongwa. From here you will head out to the first of two AIDS Orphans Rescue Unit locations to wash the children’s feet and put a new pair of socks and shoes on some who have never owned a pair of shoes in their life! You will also assist the facilitators with their daily medical treatments. The necessity of having shoes for protection will soon become apparent as you help treat wounds and infections. There will be opportunities for you to teach the children Bible lessons or to play soccer and other games. After sharing at the units you will return to the base and help teach the drama, evangelism and construction classes at the Cameroon Boot Camp. Housing is in tents; bathing and laundry are done using a bucket. While in Cameroon, you will have the opportunity to shop for jewelry, drums, spearheads, baskets, soccer jerseys and other souvenirs. On your return to Florida for Debrief, you will overnight in a hotel in Brussels. Note: This team will pack their personal belongings in a Teen Missions issued carry-on bag, as the team’s duffel bags are packed with shoes and socks for the orphans.

  27. Hi, I am looking at going on the Cameroon team in 2014 and I am wondering, how remote is this team? I am looking for the most remote team you have. Do you still bring the same amount of stuff with you on this team as you do on others, I am wondering because I saw that you only pack in the Teen Missions issued carry on.

    • Rebekah, Cameroon is remote. Burma and Zambia will also be very remote (along with others). Since Cameroon is a foot washing team, everything but your bedding will have to fit in your carry-on as shoes and socks will go in your duffel.
