Where feasible, you might visit sites like the Himalayan Mountains, Pyramids of Giza, Hippos in Lake Tengrela, or the Caribbean Sea.

Nepal

Burkina Faso

Uganda

A research trip to explore opportunities to engage a tribe in the northeastern part of the country. The trip will assess the opportunity and needs of the Ik to determine how we might be able to effectively engage them with the gospel.

Egypt

Our vocational training center in Cairo equips people with job related skills like computer skills, cell phone repair and cosmetology.
