Location: Manzini / Nsoko, eSwatini
Ministry: AIM eSwatini Base
Focus: Children’s Ministry, Sports Ministry, Community Development

The Kingdom of eSwatini (formerly known as Swaziland) is a small country neighboring South Africa & Mozambique. Ravaged by the HIV/AIDS pandemic, Swaziland has the highest HIV/AIDS rate in the world, leaving thousands of children — 12% of the population — without parents. In addition, 40% of all Swazis live on less than $1.25 per day, which is below the international poverty line. But we believe God has a redemptive plan for Swaziland. The key to a nation’s future is its children — in the care for their physical well being, the fulfillment of basic needs like food, clean water, and shelter, and in their education.

Adventures in Missions has made a long term commitment in eSwatini. With our base celebrating 20+ years of ministry, we are thankful for what the Lord has done here and excited for what the future holds. The base in eSwatini has a vision to see a generation of children raised up to take leadership of their country, spread the Gospel to the world, and create an abundant and healthy future for their nation. Come alongside our Swazi staff as they reach their communities through initiatives to strengthen families and develop communities, like feeding programs, agriculture projects, and leadership programs to raise the next generation of Swazi leaders.

A typical day in eSwatini could look like:

In the morning, you might eat breakfast with your team. Then walk or take a short ride to one of our 40 carepoints serving families throughout eSwatini. Your team will assist with children's ministry and education programs. You will also help with the food distribution projects. In the afternoon, you might help with one of our agricultural projects. As the sun sets, your team will prepare supper together and have time to worship and have fun as a team.

Location: Siem Reap
Ministry: Adventures in Missions Cambodia Base
Focus: Church Planting, Local Church Ministry, Evangelism

Cambodia boasts the famous Angkor Wat, a Hindu temple that later became a Buddhist monastery. Hidden for centuries under dense jungle, today Angkor Wat is one of most photographed places in the world. Cambodia itself is struggling to heal from one of the worst genocides in modern history. In the 1970s, the Khmer Rouge killed over 1.5 million men, women, and children. Faced with inconceivable poverty and desperation, Cambodia became a source, transit point, and destination for human trafficking. The people of Cambodia are hungry for hope and healing. Will you share it with them?
With the aftermath of the genocide of a generation and 98 percent of the population unreached by the Gospel, you’ll serve alongside and support the Adventures in Missions base staff through church planting efforts, ministries of local churches, and evangelism in order to reach people with the Gospel and empower locals through the process. The staff works hard to build long-term relationships, and you’ll be able to connect locals you meet with them to help those connections continue to grow, even after you’ve returned home.

Based out of Siem Reap, you’ll be strategically placed in an area brimming with both locals and tourists, as the local economy is driven by tourism. With sights like Angkor Wat paired with villages surrounded by rice paddies, you’ll experience a myriad of landscapes while investing in a sustainable Kingdom movement.

Ministry: Adventures in Missions Guatemala Base
Focus: Community Outreach & Development, Children's Ministry, Sports Ministry

Land of Eternal Spring,” a country where we have an established base and some of our longest-standing partnerships. Guatemala, which is often called the “New Jerusalem,” is one of the most evangelical countries in the world. You’ll have the opportunity to work alongside local believers who are working to bring the Word of Christ to a new generation. You might spend your days building relationships with youth who are at risk for falling into gang violence, but you could also teach English or kick a soccer ball around in the lush rainforest terrain with volcanoes dotting the skyline. Life in Guatemala is slow and focused around hospitality, and it’s a truly stunning place where God is raising up a generation to serve His Kingdom.
As a long-standing Adventures in Missions base, the staff in Guatemala places a focus on these three principles: serve, disciple, send. They seek to empower locals through community development by meeting physical needs with water filters and stove installation, creating discipleship opportunities, and ultimately, having the goal of sending Guatemalans to the nations.
In a country with a high rate of malnutrition, meeting physical needs remains an important part of the ministry. Join the base staff in their efforts to see locals empowered.
