February 4 —21, 2010
Following your orientation you will travel to Cameroon and arrive at the capital city of Douala. Following a night at a guesthouse, you bus 225 miles north to Bamenda, home of the Teen Missions in Cameroon base. You will be so blessed by the opportunity to serve orphans by washing their feet and giving them a pair of shoes. After a day to rest and repack your bags you will travel into the bush to minister at three Rescue Units. You will see all the beauty and diversity Cameroon has to offer as you travel to each Unit location. You will make a difference in the lives of these children as you wash their feet and put a clean pair of socks and shoes on them. The gift of these shoes will prove invaluable in preventing sores and infections and protecting their feet during long walks to school. You will also enjoy sharing Bible stories, playing games and singing songs with these needy children. Your team will have the opportunity to shop for national arts and crafts, baskets and colorful materials before you fly back to North America. NOTE: You will only be permitted to pack personal belongings that fit in a carryon. The rest of the weight limit is needed to take over the socks and shoes.
