July 21-26th 2019.
We embarked on a “long” trip to Jersey Shore, Penna. for a week of rustic sleeping, delicious meals, and solid Bible teaching. Along the way we discovered the many people groups who do not have the Bible in their own language, the difficult task of learning the language of unreached people groups, translating and teaching them the Bible and much more.
We engaged in the activities that ranged from visiting a tribal village, hiking near various waterfalls, competing in team games, and what it would look like to go through customs in a foreign nation. We also took a swim in the local creek and played lots of volleyball.
Our teens learned a lot about missions, what missionaries do, what it takes to reach people around the world, specifically unreached people groups with the message of hope. They were challenged to consider the trajectory of their lives and how God desires to use them in His plan to build His kingdom.
It was a great week, truly impacting our lives with God’s heart for His creation.
