What would your summer mission trip look like?

This trip will give you a wide variety of experiences. You’ll live in a creative-access country in Southeast Asia and see how teams use both a non-profit organization and a business to gain access to four unreached people groups.

During the first part of your journey, you’ll do some language learning. You’ll also work with a non-profit organization focused on water projects and helping people with disabilities.

The second part, the bulk of your journey, will take you to a beautiful, remote Southeast Asian island where farming and mining are the largest industries. This is an island of contrasts:

  • Many people here drive cars. But also use horse-drawn carriages.
  • Most homes have televisions. But roads are often congested by water buffalo, horses, goats or cows.
  • Just about everyone has a mobile phone and a Facebook account. But the electricity routinely goes off throughout the day.
  • The religious ceremonies here usually include both an Islamic leader and a witch doctor.

Here you’ll have the opportunity to live with the locals, experience what their lives are like, and enjoy a variety of adventure activities. Think surfing, spearfishing, rock climbing, and caving. You’ll also learn the long-term approach we use to share the good news, with opportunities to practice what you learn every day.
