This team will leave out of Orlando and head to Quito, Ecuador as well as to the Amazon River Basin. Volunteers will join a team currently training up and discipling young men and women to become ministers within their indigenous community. We'll give you all the tools you need to raise your funds. Come help reach the unreached and be a part of what God is doing! Deadline to apply is Mar 5. In addition to this set team in June, teams can also be organized specifically for your church or for individual families. Pre-trip raining will take 12 weeks. We will 3 mandatory training dates prior to departure. Once in-country, each day will begin with devotional and end with a team debrief. You will sleep safely and comfortably, eating standard meals, and meeting amazing people as you witness God's handiwork already being done. The goal of this trip is to remain flexible to what God would like to do in you and through you as a team. The approximate cost of this trip is $1800pp for the 7 day trip and can vary slightly depending on flight costs. This cost also includes training materials, training space, team building, funds tracking, meals, in-country transportation, lodging, ministry opportunities, and a local ministry donation. We require a $200 deposit at the time of application and it will go towards your trip. Set team dates will have a certified Faith Journeys leader and for customized trips, we will equip the team leader that you choose or if you prefer we can also lead the team for you for a nominal fee divided amongst the team. Training & Preparation A great deal goes into preparing for a short-term mission trip and we are here to help. Through team building exercises, we'll make sure the team knows each other well before leaving home. We will also conduct an in-depth training that includes sessions on cross-culture, evangelism, spiritual warfare, and how to serve others with dignity. You'll have a checklist of items to take care of on your own (like passports, immunizations, and raising support). We will help you stay on track with it all. Volunteers must participate in all training events (which take place in Orlando, Fl)
