Opportunities To Serve

Caribbean Island Evangelistic Outreach
  Evangelism and Outreach
Physical Work
Teaching and Training
Children/Youth Programs
A team willing to work hard and help a local church on a Caribbean Island. They will join with a Colombian youth group to do maintenance and painting on the buildings and evangelistic outreaches in the evening.

Isla Fuerte is an island that is very poor. The team will need to be prepared to be without running water or electricity. Bottled water will be provided for drinking. There is a generator for lights in the evening. Many of the meals will be fish (prepared deliciously).

The success of the trip will depend on the US team and the Colombian team interacting and working well together.
