CHURCH MOBILIZATION & EVANGELISM
27358 Team of 2 guys
Field cost: $1370 plus round trip airfare, immunizations, required travel insurance, passport & visa costs
Our team is committed to helping local Baptist churches in the local province engage lostness around them. With a population of 8.3 million, our province has a lot of both: about 40 Baptist churches and about 7 unreached people groups (UPGs). Some of the UPGs and churches are 4-5 hours from the city where our team lives which limits our contact with them. This Nehemiah Team will help us extend our reach out into the province to encourage, equip, and mobilize churches to engage the UPGs around them. You will be paired up with two undergraduate students from the local Baptist seminary. They will be your language & cultural guides, helping you by translating and explaining cultural differences that will not be obvious to you. You will help them by modeling an intimate walk with the Lord coupled with boldness in sharing your faith to those you meet, especially those from a Muslim background. We expect they will have a tendency to want to minister to those within the church (and we support that!), but we want you to help them look outside the church to vast fields of lostness. Over the course of the summer, you will spend the majority of each week (4-5 days) in the province where you will encourage local churches and share the gospel with people you meet in your travels. The remainder of the week (2-3 days) you’ll be in the city, where you will debrief what you experienced, plan the coming week, and rest. This rhythm will help us keep in touch and adjust your schedule so that morale stays high as we work to push back darkness.

We are looking for a team of students willing and able to travel to the remote Limi Valley to teach English. They must be capable to traveling light and living in primitive village conditions. Travel will include: air, jeep, and trekking multiple days.
The village has limited amounts of electricity with virtually no contact to the outside world. Wifi is available for a few hours in the evenings at the Health Post in the village. There is no running water, but the people are hospitable and the stay will be relatively comfortable.
The Limi Valley is a beautiful part of the country that is far from the normal tourist routes of Annapurna and Everest. We are looking for people willing to experience a life changing adventure as they seek to share the gospel and change the lives of the Limi people.
Currently, there is not much outreach in this region, so this team will largely be the tip of the spear in beginning a strategy to first engage and then reach this people group.

We are not looking for “experts” but rather people who are humbly willing to serve, willing to be learn, willing to faithfully proclaim the gospel and willing to intercede on behalf of those who are desperately lost in our province. Outside of evangelism and prayer walking, the team will have other opportunities to partner with other local ministries, explore the province, learn about local history and culture, and see many historical sites. Your team will primarily look for opportunities to evangelize English-speaking nationals in local coffee shops and cafes, roadside food stalls, parks, and other public places where people tend to gather throughout the province. You may also have opportunities to share testimonies and/or short devotional teachings in local churches and/or at campus ministry gatherings located throughout the province.
