Oppressive governments and famine have displaced this unreached people group. Every year, thousands of refugees leave their totalitarian country, where Christians are killed without trial, in search of a better and freer life. After escaping their home country, these young people travel through several Asian countries – many of them hostile – until they reach safety in South Korea. Some of these refugees were even born in other countries as their parents hid and tried to make a living. Some of them have been in danger, human trafficked, or been emotionally scarred and are in desperate need of a Savior. This summer, travel to South Korea and live with these refugee students in apartments or dorms, teaching them English, life skills, and showing them that there really is a God who loves them.
FOR ALL ASSIGNMENTS, your first stop will be a joint orientation with other Nehemiah Teams, learning the skills you need to carry out your assignment. You will then travel to the field to spend your summer carrying out the task you've prepared for. At the end of the summer, travel back to a joint debrief, sharing all that God has done. It is required that all participants attend orientation & debrief.

The strongest power of the gospel is the kinship of Jesus' love beyond every barrier between humans. Students will experience multi-cultural missions in South Korea and their county of final destination. They will teach English to children and teenagers in South Korea for the first month and then move to their final destination with their Korean team mates where they will be involved in one-on-one evangelism and various ministries which may include: teaching English and Korean, worship dances, & playing musical instruments. It would be helpful if the students have training/experience teaching English.
These teams are in partnership with the Baptist Student Union (BSU) of South Korea and the South Korean FMB. Each team of American students will be partnered with Korean students for their second month of ministry... creating a true multinational missions experience.
