What a blessing it is to see clearly!
Travel: Following a day of specialized training in Merritt Island Florida, you will fly to Zimbabwe via Washington, D.C. and Addis Abba and landing in Johannesburg, South Africa. After an overnight at the Teen Missions base in Pretoria, you will bus to the border of Zimbabwe, keep your eyes open for giraffe, kudu, antelope and elephants. After crossing the border you will travel two hours to our base in Gwanda.
Ministry: You can help others to see better by fitting them with reading eyeglasses on this adventurous medical team to Zimbabwe. Daily you will ride in the Teen Missions truck and visit the different MSSM locations where you will test and give out eyeglasses to children, teachers and elderly people in the nearby villages as well as take care of basic first aid issues. You will enjoy the enthusiasm that people have when they can see clearly! You will also have time to play with and encourage the children who attend the Sunday schools.

Come and have a part in something new.
Travel: Following a day of training with Teen Missions personnel you bus to the Orlando International Airport and board a flight across the Straits of Florida, Cuba and the Caribbean Sea to Bogota, Columbia. A short connecting flight will take you to Guayaquil. In the past year we have sold our base located in the mountains near Latacunga and purchased a new property in Playas. The remote location of the mountain property made it difficult for others to be involved. A move to the south will open many new doors of ministry opportunity for Ecuadorians. Playas located on the beaches of the Pacific Ocean has a thriving fishing community and is known for its seafood.
Ministry: Your project will be to continue to help with construction on a building that will house staff, Bible school students and be the hub for the MSSM ministry. You will have opportunities to participate in worship services at local churches and minister to the children in the community.
Adventure: You will enjoy time at the beautiful beaches and also have an opportunity to shop for souvenirs before returning to the States.
