Ornate Buddhist temples, rice fields and busy open markets await you as you travel to Thailand, the “Land of Enchantment!” Thailand is a country where less than one percent of its population claiming to be Christian, therefore opportunities will abound to share the Gospel.

Travel: After Boot Camp, you will fly from Orlando to Los Angeles, where your next flight takes you across the Pacific Ocean and the International Date Line before arriving in Hong Kong, China. Another flight will take you to Bangkok, Thailand’s capital. You will travel eight hours by bus northeast to the city of Ubon Ratchathani in the heart of the Isaan people.
Ministry: Your project is to refurbish bathrooms and put in a kitchen service window at the Ban Pak Ping Vocational Training Center which houses disadvantaged children and children whose parents have died from AIDS. You will enjoy spending time with the orphans while playing and teaching them English. You can make a difference in this Buddhist area by sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ using the skills you learned at Boot Camp, including drama, puppets, and singing.
Adventure: Thailand is one of the best shopping places in the world with unique handmade items made of silver, silk, leather, and wood as well as jewelry, basketry and bronze-ware. Enjoy a trip to Pha Tdem where you will see mushroom-shaped rocks, prehistoric rock paintings, as well as visit the national park with its majestic waterfalls and view Laos just across the Mekong River. After returning to Bangkok for a time of shopping, you will fly to Orlando for Debrief.

“Our time here in Honduras has been the adventure of a lifetime! From riding through the country in the back of a pickup truck to gliding down the cool, dark river on a motorboat, this trip has been like nothing I’ve ever experienced. The opportunities we’ve had to share God’s love and Good News have been numerous, and it’s been so much fun even just to be able to hang out with the children in the villages we are visiting. The culture is startlingly different, and yet the people of Honduras have the same need for Jesus as anywhere else.”

“Training at the Lord’s Boot Camp was a truly amazing experience. I learned so much more than I thought was possible. I was equipped thoroughly for the field, I became adjusted to less comfortable living conditions and I really improved my cleanliness and work ethic. I also learned about teamwork, faith, calling, and persistence. It honestly took everything in me to get through the last couple weeks. Some days I’d just think to myself, “What am I doing here?” I would have to remember the answer, “I am doing this to answer the calling of the Lord of the universe to spread His words to all of creation.” I am a missionary, and I’m loving every moment of it.”

“Coming to Honduras was kind of scary...I mean leaving the country without my parents. But something God showed me one of my first days here is Psalm 27:1 which talks about not being afraid because God is with us. So even though coming here was scary, I know I can do it because God is with me and through Him I can do all things!”
