Members of this team will build their own raft out of oil drums and wooden planks. The team will float and row between up to 5 different villages along the Nistru River in the east of Moldova. The team will journey to the more un-reached villages in Moldova to share the Gospel through youth and children’s programs. Depending on the village, the team may also have the opportunity to visit families and elderly in their homes and demonstrate the love of Christ through practical service. The team will camp each night and will be on the river for 3 to 5 hours each day or every other day.
Participants should be swimmers, adventurous, flexible, willing to be stretched and ready to camp each night in tents or under the stars. Do you want to be challenged in your faith and experience God in a new way through cross-cultural ministry? Do you have a passion to reach the lost by sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ?
