21301 Team of 10
Field cost: $810 + food & local transportation costs
From a “Command Center” in America, your team will share the gospel online with hundreds this summer! Partnering with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, different strategies will be developed to find those “searching for Jesus” among unreached peoples and places in the Philippines. You will also have opportunity to reach out to refugees in a nearby city and work with local Baptist associations doing children & youth mission events. Your team will be spending several hours daily connecting online with Filipinos, answering their questions and pointing them to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The purpose of your team is to target, through BGEA’s online strategies, unreached people groups and pocket places of lostness in the Philippines with an estimated target population of 2.5 million people. As people respond and make a decision for Christ, you will continue a discipling relationship with them for the summer. At the end of the summer, these “persons of peace” will be introduced to the on-field workers for in person follow up. The goal is to make disciples and plant churches in places where there are none. Your team will also do hands on ministry with refugees and internationals in a nearby city. You will also partner with 3 local Baptist associations to help plan and carry out several children and youth mission events.

Field cost: $1380 plus round trip travel
His light, His love, and His joy are breaking into the darkness through friendships. The team task is to become community with refugee families who have lived in the Midwest for up to twenty years while maintaining traditional dress, cooking, and folk Islam practices. The children in this neighborhood are second generation to live in the USA. Few have ever visited Africa. Their English skills are significantly higher quality than their parents. They are obedient to traditions out of respect, but their hearts and minds are becoming western. Their souls are confused, conflicted, and could be ripe for harvest. Part of the training will be to learn and understand shame-honor based cultures and to use biblical stories in context of an honor-shame mentality. Be HIS light, love & joy this summer!
