Known as the Land of Eternal Spring, the weather in Guatemala is as warm as its hospitable people. You’ll spend your time near Antigua with our Adventures in Missions base team, including several local missionaries and World Race alumni!

Along the way, our base staff will teach and equip you with God’s word. You will also work alongside them to build relationships with the surrounding communities and show God’s love in tangible ways. As you jump into this established ministry and work alongside other missionaries you’ll find yourself playing soccer with local kids or teaching English in a local school. You’ll worship alongside other missionaries and use your gifts to glorify God with each day in Guatemala.

Location: Craiova
Ministry: Hope Church
Focus: Relationship Evangelism, College Ministry, Community Outreach, Local Church

Embark on a wild journey down the path less traveled through the cobblestone streets and sunflower fields of Romania. At the heart of Eastern Europe, many in this nation still live with the fear that came from its communist past. Alongside Hope Church, one of our ministry partners, you can reach this country with the hope that Jesus brings!

There are over 30,000 college students in Craiova, and you’ll spend your days building meaningful relationships with them. As you share your life with them, they will see Jesus in you. You’ll be able to connect people interested in knowing about who Jesus is with Hope Church for mentorship and community. Through partnering with local churches, you’ll minister to youth groups, join in worship, and share testimonies of what God is doing. You’ll get the opportunity to empower college students to reach the rest of the Balkans for years to come, and you may even travel to other countries in the region to help with short-term projects!

Ministry: Adventures in Missions Eswatini Base
Focus: Children's Ministry, Community Development, Leadership, Family Strengthening

Step away from modern life in the rural village of Nsoko, Eswatini, where you will fall in love with the incredible sunsets and the simple pace of life. The devastating HIV/AIDS epidemic stands in contrast to the beauty of this country and its people. You will partner with the incredible team, made up of mostly national missionaries, at our Adventures in Missions Eswatini base to strengthen families and bring hope to over 7,000 orphaned children.

At one of our 40 CarePoints around the country, you will work alongside local staff who are providing these children with food, clean water, education, healthcare, and mentorship. Our base staff will help equip you to holistically care for these children and teach them about Jesus. You’ll jump into a strong, sustainable ministry and provide hands and support for these local missionaries. Watch God transform your life as He continues to transform this country!

*BONUS COUNTRY*

With coastlines on two oceans, world famous mountain views, and 11 official languages, South Africa is the southernmost country on the continent of Africa. You'll even get a chance to travel to a fourth country! Join our ministry partner, Global Leadership Academy in Jeffrey’s Bay, for a week or two in a country still healing from its dark and painful history of racism and segregation.

From feeding programs to sports ministry, you’ll have many opportunities for youth and children’s ministry. You’ll work in the school system, teaching academic lessons and life skills, tutoring, or sharing the love of Jesus with students. You may even get a chance to share your gifts through music lessons! You can make the most of this beachside town by connecting with tourists and backpackers searching for more.
