Dates: June 17 – August 4, 2017
Teen Missions Trip (ages 13-19)
Travel: After completing your 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, Cuba, 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: 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 youth center, you will share the love of Jesus with the Kuna people using music, puppets and drama. 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 an opportunity to swim in the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean Sea.
Project Expense: $3390 U.S. plus $30 Registration Fee
