Tread on the heels of adventure as you spend your summer surrounded by the rugged beautiful plains and wild mountain slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro sharing the Gospel among the Chagga people of Tanzania!
Dates: June 17 – August 4, 2017
Teen Missions Trip (ages 13-19)
Travel: After Commissioning, you bus to the Orlando International Airport for a flight to Washington D.C. before boarding a flight across the Atlantic Ocean, Mediterranean Sea, and the Sahara Desert to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. A connecting flight takes you across the Equator to Kilimanjaro International Airport. You will then bus one hour to the Teen Missions in Tanzania Bible, Missionary & Work (BMW) Training Center, located at the base of Mount Kilimanjaro.
Ministry: Experience what rural African life is like as you and your team sleep in tents and spend your days under the Tanzanian skies. Once you have arrived, your team will continue construction on the BMW buildings. You will backpack the lower slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro as you invest your time, energy and love into the local children, giving them the opportunity to know the Creator of the great mountain on which they live. Watch the faces of the children light up as you present the Gospel using puppets, drama, and personal testimonies, bringing the story of Jesus to them for the first time.
Adventure: Before returning home, you will have the opportunity to put your bartering skills into action while you shop for souvenirs such as drums, jewelry and wood carvings.
Warning: This team is not for the faint of heart. Members should be in good physical health and free of respiratory difficulties.
