BC sloughMadagascar Motorcycle team: This all girls team (one guy leader did join them last minute) was a multi task team. They dismantled and re-roofed one of the buildings, made trusses and bricks. Then they headed out on motorcycles to the remote part of the country visiting Aids Orphan Rescue Units and villages. Teaching and sharing and just loving on the kids, until the monsoon rains came and closed off the roads. The missionary and the students of the school were impressed at the amount of work and ministry the Aussie girls got done and the fellowship they had with them.

Germany Youth Camp: This team completed work on a three-story renovation project. They had to gut it out and rebuild the attic for a youth camp giving them much needed rooms. The team also stepped out of their comfort zone and did a new style of witnessing to University students at Heidelberg. They did ice skating outreach, one to one surveys with students who could speak English at different levels, traveling on a train singing and sharing. All of which is not what Aussies do. The missionary was so impressed that they asked us to start a Teen Missions program there at their church.
