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.
