Thailand – Get Into Missions July 2017

Ready to start your missions journey? This trip is especially for young adults who want to learn about missions in action. You’ll need energy, enthusiasm, curiosity, a passion to serve.

From our base in Bangkok, we will work with some extraordinary young missionaries to explore missions in both city and rural communities.
There’s lots to do:
• Working with children and families – kids clubs, teaching English in schools and community centers, music lessons, craft activities, Sunday school
• Youth and young adults – visit to a Youth Remand Center, teaching English in universities, coffee shop English classes
• Churches – share testimonies, pray for people, get involved in local outreach

Your attitude of ‘yes!’ is the one that is most needed for this team. We go to serve, not to be served. You need to be flexible, open to change, ready to divert from the program… ready for anything.
This trip is open to young adults 18+and is especially suited to anyone who wants to learn more about missions in action.
Efforts will be made to arrange for the most fruitful exposure possible. These efforts usually involve the local missionaries going out of their way to arrange for activities, events and ministry opportunities for the team. So be prepared:
1. For last minute changes in programs.
2. To minister to anyone whenever opportunity arises. This could include making simple conversation, praying for a general blessing, praying for specific needs (e.g. healing), sharing a testimony, playing a simple game, etc.
3. To function as a team to help out one another.
