January 21 – February 8, 2018
Adult Missions Trip (ages 18+)
You will have the opportunity to bless orphans and widows for years to come!
Travel: After your day of training at Teen Missions Headquarters, you will go to the Orlando International Airport and board a flight to Washington D.C. From there, a flight takes you across the Atlantic Ocean, the Mediterranean Sea and the Sahara Desert before arriving in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, where a connecting flight takes you to Lilongwe, Malawi. Once on the ground in Malawi, you will have a two-hour drive to the Teen Missions in Malawi base in Chipoka, located on the shores of Lake Malawi.
Ministry: We will have several projects for you to do, offering a variety of experiences. You will have the opportunity to assist with the Motorcycle Sunday School Mission program teaching Bible lessons, singing, playing games and assisting with phonics training with the orphans. Practical work projects include putting together mini-chicken houses to be given to widows and orphans and teaching them how to install drip irrigation for their gardens. All that you do will be such a blessing to the children and to our national staff.
Adventure: You will also visit the local market to barter for drums, wood carvings, paintings and many types of beautiful fabric.
Project Expense: $3090 U.S. plus $30 Registration Fee
The dates listed are for the duration of the trip. The first date listed is the day you are to arrive at the Teen Missions International Headquarters in Merritt Island, FL. The last date is the day you will arrive at an international airport in the United States where the team terminates. Your team will have a full day of specialized training with Teen Missions staff before leaving for the field.
ADULT MISSIONS TRIP PURPOSE
If you are ready for the adventure of a lifetime this is what you are looking for. This is not a ministry for the faint of heart as conditions are rugged—sleeping in tents in a rural bush area, bathing using a bucket, outhouses and no electricity, phones or e-mail. Although the conditions are challenging, the rewards are abundant. These orphans with their tattered clothes and cheerful smiles will engrave a lasting image on your heart. Please prayerfully consider one of the following adult mission trips.
Projects vary from country to country and are based on need. Please read each mission trips’ copy carefully in order to understand what would be required of you should you choose that particular team. There will be ample opportunities to share the Gospel and to love and interact with the children. You will also have the opportunity to visit a local church and school.
