In partnership with OMF our team will be travelling to Hirosaki. With less than 1% Christians, Japan is one of the most unreached nations in the world. Despite Western influences amidst the younger generation, Japan is still a country deeply rooted in Animism, Shinto, Buddhism, and numerous cults. Working with the Ghent’s in their church planting ministry, we hope to help spread the love of Jesus Christ in a very unreached world. We will be working in evangelistic and discipleship oriented programs, such as English classes, workshops, and testimony nights, as well as working with people to build relationships through meals, skits, and sharing life.
This opportunity would take a team to serve in the midlands of Ireland, in a place called Durrow, in County Laois, with a history of religious settlements dating back to the 6th century. We would work alongside an ongoing ministry to children, both in local outreach and through a summer camp program for several weeks mid-summer – a wonderful privilege of helping reach the next generation for Christ, in a country where over a fifth of the population is under the age of 15.
Known for the beautiful Victoria Falls, and for some of the highest HIV and orphan rates in sub-Saharan Africa, Zambia is a country of great need and opportunity. Working alongside Scripture Union peer educators, the team will minister to youth through a Life Skills program. There will also be opportunity to learn from and share in the lives of wonderful brothers and sisters in Christ as they care for orphans in village and home contexts.
Arequipa, Peru is located in the south of the country. It is the second largest city and a very important commercial center for the country. We will be working in a camp environment teaching young people English. However, the goal will be to build relationships with them and allow the missionaries to further build into their lives. Peru is 81% Catholic and this is largely traditional and in name only. The young people of Peru need to know about Jesus Christ in a way that is personal and loving, they need to know that they can have a personal relationship with him.
