What would your 2023 mission trip look like?

This city is a blend of unreached peoples, languages and beliefs impacting all parts of life. In a single Southeast Asian neighborhood, you will often hear bells from the Hindu temple, smell incense from Buddhist and Taoist worshipers, and hear the Muslim call to prayer.

This location is a beautiful, equatorial tropical island. You will be in the suburbs, with both a large outdoor market and a large superstore less than ten minutes away. You will be a 45-minute flight from the capital. The island has an international airport along with several malls and other modern conveniences.

Yet, below the surface are many complexities. Followers of the world’s three largest non-Christian religions live on top of each other and coexist in everyday life. There is a wide array of social classes as well, ranging from:

  • Migrant workers from nearby countries
  • Local Muslims who speak little to no English
  • Hindus who speak mostly the local language and also English
  • Very wealthy East Asian Buddhist business people and property owners

There is a lot of seafood here. The climate is hot and humid year-round (91 degrees Fahrenheit every day) and rain is often on the forecast.

And here’s a bonus: This island is considered one of the top-ten foodie destinations in the world!
