Dates June 20 – July 28, 2017
Travel: After Commissioning you bus to the Orlando International Airport for a flight to Montreal, Canada, before boarding a flight across the Atlantic Ocean to London, England, where you may have time to purchase some famous fish & chips at the airport. A connecting flight takes you across the English Channel, the Mediterranean Sea, the Sahara Desert, and the Equator to Nairobi, Kenya. From Nairobi a short flight takes you to Lilongwe, the capital of Malawi. It is a two-hour drive from the airport to the Teen Missions in Malawi Bible, Missionary & Work (BMW) Training Center, located on the shore of Lake Malawi in Chipoka.
Ministry: Your team will be building a community playground for kids who never had a chance to swing on a swing or go down a slide! You will share the love of Christ with Malawian children by playing games, telling Bible stories, and spending time showing them God’s love. You will also have an opportunity to plant fruit trees at some of the AIDS Orphans Rescue Units. These beautiful trees will provide food for children in the community. In fact, many children will be watching your every move as they await their turn to play on the new playground. Using a wordless bracelet or acting out a story from the Bible are ways to share the Gospel message found in Jesus Christ.
Adventure: Sightseeing will include a trip to Liwonde National Park where you will stay at a bush camp. A game drive will take you through the beautiful untouched wilderness; keep your eyes open for elephants and hippos! You will also have time to shop for wood carvings, jewelry, drums and traditional Malawian skirts before you leave.
