Ashya! You are welcome to come to the beautiful country of Cameroon where you will be warmly received as you make a difference in the lives of orphans. New to Teen Missions is a team that has a dual purpose. One is to help young people to get unplugged from the many tech gadgets, including gaming, that in some cases consumes too much of their time. Two is to reboot into spending time helping others through various community development projects. You will be blessed by helping others that are in need.
Dates: June 17 – August 11, 2017
Teen Missions Trip (ages 13-19)
Travel: After completing Boot Camp training, you bus to the Miami International Airport to board a flight across the Atlantic Ocean, France, and the Swiss Alps before arriving in Istanbul, Turkey. A connecting flight takes you across the Mediterranean Sea and the Sahara Desert before landing in Douala. From the airport you bus 225 miles through the African countryside to the Teen Missions Cameroon Bible, Missionary & Work Training Center, located outside of Bamenda.
Ministry: Your team will have two projects. First you will travel to one of our AIDS Orphans Rescue Units (AORU) and wash children’s feet then help them put on a new pair of socks and shoes. You will also assist the AORU facilitators with their daily medical treatments. You will then go to the Win Our Nations orphanage and help paint the new dormitories and assist with building a fence. There will be ample opportunity on each project to teach the children Bible lessons, play soccer and other games as well as share hugs and smiles.
Adventure: While in Cameroon you will have the opportunity to shop for souvenirs such as jewelry, drums, baskets and national soccer jerseys to help you remember your amazing summer.
