MalawiCome to Malawi, Africa where your mission is not only to bring fresh water to a village, but to also bring the living water of Christ to those who are searching! At Boot Camp your team will be trained to operate a drilling rig used to drill the well.

 

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 Toronto, Canada, before boarding a flight across the Atlantic Ocean, to London, England, where you may have time for some famous fish ‘n’ chips. A connecting flight takes you across the English Channel, the Mediterranean Sea, and the Equator before arriving in Nairobi, Kenya. From Nairobi, a connecting flight takes you to Lilongwe, the capital of Malawi. As you step off the airplane, you will immediately notice a country that is still living in the past where food, water and firewood are all carried by the women on their heads. From the airport it is a two-hour drive to the Teen Missions in Malawi Bible, Missionary & Work (BMW) Training Center in Chipoka, located on the shores of Lake Malawi. After packing necessary supplies, your team will head to a remote village that does not have access to clean water.

Ministry:  While drilling the well, hundreds of children and adults will gather to watch what is happening. This gives you the perfect opportunity to teach English, share Bible stories, and play games all of which will give you a chance to share the Gospel message.  At night see the skies come to life with star constellations seen only in the southern hemisphere.

Adventure:  At the end of your summer, an overnight Safari trip is planned to Liwonde National Park. Here you may see many of Africa’s amazing wildlife on a game drive through the untouched wilderness. Keep your eyes open for elephants, hippos, crocodiles, buffalo and many types of antelope! You will also have an opportunity to visit the local market to barter for drums, wood carvings, paintings and many types of beautiful fabric.

Project Expense: $4890 U.S. plus $30 Registration Fee

  1. Can overalls be worn with a T-shirt, is this acceptable for a work outfit if the leg is not tight to the skin and the straps are wide?

  2. Hi we reside in South Africa my daughter is 15 and will be attending her teen mission trip 2016 here in S.A. and would love to register her for an international trip in 2017 but want to know is it possible for her at 15 to board a flight alone or she will need to be accompanied by an adult

    • Debra, She should not have any problems doing an international flight alone. The requirements depend on the airlines. You may have to pay an extra fee for her to fly as an “unaccompanied minor”. We have had several team members come from overseas.

  3. My message did come through but would you read both and answer the questions because I sent different questions in both things

  4. I do not think my message came through. I have a few questions for you. My family and I full time rv and I would have to fly to the boot camp. I was wondering if you could tell me where the boot camp is please. Will my family and I be able to write letters to each other while we are the field? Also, will there be showers and laundry for us and will the boys and girls sleep in different places and where will we sleep? Thank you for reading this, Zachary

    • Zachary, The Boot Camp is at Merritt Island, Florida. Yes, you might write letters. Are you planning on coming as a leader? The Malawi team is in tents, so both team members and leaders will be sleeping in tents. Showers and laundry are usually done using a bucket. We will pick up the team members and leaders at the Orlando International Airport (MCO). If you have further questions, please call our office (321-453-0350).

    • I was not coming as a leader. Thank you for you response and have a nice day!

  5. I’ve signed up for a team already and I know the basic idea of what we will be doing, but I’m wondering when we will get more information?

    • Jocelyn, Your support packet will be mailed soon. We are in the process of proofing the final copy for the brochure and then we can get the support letters printed and the packets mailed. The hurricane put us behind…

  6. Is the estimated Project Expense an estimation of donations needed, or is it an estimation of how much each team member must pay?

  7. Hi! My name is Stevie and I would really like to find out more information about this trip! Who do i contact?

    • Stevie, If you read the reports (under trip reports) from last year, you will get a great idea of what goes on. More information will be coming out in the next few weeks.

  8. When will approximate prices be published?
