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.

The Dominican Republic shares an island with Haiti, and after the earthquake in 2010, the country became a refuge for thousands of displaced people. Although known for its vast sugar plantations, the nation’s economy depends on tourism. Political corruption is a lasting issue, along with the expanding gap between wealthy and poor. Will you share the freedom of life in Christ with people who need to know Him?

With coastlines on two oceans, world famous mountain views, and 11 official languages, South Africa is the southernmost country on the continent of Africa. Join our ministry partner, Global Leadership Academy in Jeffrey’s Bay, to reach this 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.

*BONUS COUNTRY*

On this route, you'll have the opportunity to experience Thailand as well! This nation’s friendly people have earned Thailand its suitable nickname as the Land of Smiles. Here you will have the opportunity to reveal the truth of Jesus to a deeply unreached country, whether you are prayer-walking through the red-light district, ministering to tourists, playing with street kids or teaching English to local Thai people.
