Want To Take A Short-Term Mission Trip To Africa In 2017?

It is official. We are hosting our first short-term mission teams in Africa. Before we open the trips up to the masses we wanted to extend an exclusive invitation to our prayer partners and supporters. If your church is interested in reserving one of the three slots for summer of 2017 send Mike a private message.

The three trip dates will be:

June 10-20, 2017
August 5-15, 2017
August 19-29, 2017

WP_20160512_005Each team will be limited to 10 people. The bottom age is incoming high school freshman. The trips will go through MTW.

We are looking for three very specific types of workers – 1) skilled/unskilled construction, 2) trained medical and 3) Spanish speaking theology instructors. A team may consist of one type of worker or mix of the three.

Airline tickets can cost $1500 – $2300 and it can take 20-30 hours of travel. To check your flight options you will want to fly into Malabo, Equatorial Guinea (on the island of Bioko). We will book your final flight from Malabo to Bata (30 minute flight) 10 days before you arrive. This next part is important…the last flight of the day from Malabo to Bata is at 9pm. If you arrive into Malabo after 7:30pm you will need to spend the night in Malabo and pay additional costs for taxis and hotels.

WP_20160512_006We are still working on your budget while in country, but we will keep that low. You can expect about $800-$900 for 10-days of food, lodging and ministry expenses.

Living is primitive. You can expect to purify your own drinking water, take bucket showers, experience power outages and sleep under a mosquito net. The three pictures in this blog are of your living accommodations. You will sleep 100 feet from our home and have Erin (an R.N.) and Mike as resources 24 hours a day.

MTW does not mandate we take short-term teams. We host short-term mission teams because we believe it advances our ministry and glorifies God. Let us know if you have any questions.
