Rio Sidra Carti, an island located one hour off the Panama mainland in the Gulf of San Blas, is your destination for the summer!
Teen Missions Trip (ages 13-19)
Travel: After completing training at the Lord’s Boot Camp, you bus to the Orlando International Airport and board a flight that takes you across the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea to Panama City. From Panama City you will travel by four-wheel drive vehicle to the coast and board boats for a one-hour trip out to the island.
Ministry: You will build a pastor’s house for the Kuna people who live on the beaches of the Caribbean Sea and maintain plots of land in the jungle for their crops. The Kuna people are a very unique people group and you will be fascinated to live among them and experience their culture. Along with building a pastor’s house, you will share the love of Jesus with the Kuna people by using music and puppets. Many of these people are trapped in ancient traditions of spirit worship and superstitions.
Adventure: A day spent in Panama City on your return will allow you to see the Panama Canal, visit the museum that shares the history of the Canal and shop for souvenirs. You will also have opportunity to swim in the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean.
