Dates: June 16 – August 10, 2018
Teen Missions Trip (ages 13-19)
Work & Evangelism Team
Sharing the Gospel among the Chagga people of Tanzania will be the experience of a lifetime!
Travel: After Commissioning you will bus to the Orlando International Airport for a flight to Washington D.C. From there you travel across the Atlantic Ocean, the Mediterranean Sea and the Sahara Desert to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. A connecting flight takes you across the Equator to the Kilimanjaro International Airport. From the airport you will travel by bus one-hour to the Teen Missions in Tanzania property located at the base of Mt. Kilimanjaro.
Ministry: Your project will be the construction of a girls’ dormitory for a local school. In order to attend school, these girls have to walk a very long distance and the new dormitory will give a safe environment from those who exploit them. Plus it will allow the girls the opportunity to finish school. After your construction time is completed, you will then take day hikes on the foothills of Mt. Kilimanjaro. As you hike, you will share your love with the local children, giving them the opportunity to know the Creator of the great mountain on which they live.
Adventure: More adventure awaits when you enjoy a day on a Safari where you may get to see the “Big Five” animals (cape buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion and rhino) for which Tanzania is known. You will also have the opportunity to purchase souvenirs such as Tanzanite jewelry, wood carvings and drums. Warning: This team is not for the faint of heart. Members should be in good physical health and free of respiratory difficulties.
Project Expense: $4590 U.S. plus $30 Registration Fee
Please note that the projects have been chosen up to a year before they are published. Therefore, projects can change, even at the last minute. Please come with a servant’s heart and be eager to do whatever the mission has a need for, regardless of what was specified. We have been invited back to many places because of our willingness to do whatever is needed. ALL teams are work teams in addition to the project listed. Teams are filled on a first come, first served basis.
“Every morning I’m filled with the same surreal feeling as I’m able to look out at the snow-capped slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Similar to the indescribable feeling that I get when attending the various churches and their SUPER lively worship. These are just a few of the unforgettable memories I’ll take away from this mission trip.”
