COME SERVE ANY 10 DAYS! Take a trip like none other. You will be based on an island as a guest of an adventure tour company, working with the local guides and exploring remote areas. At times, you will join a team and backpack around small tropical islands, live in local homes, and share the love of Christ with those you encounter. You'll hike village to village, and as you experience everyday life with these people & share meals with them, you will have opportunities to share about the Bread of Life. You will be some of the only white people on these remote, "Ends of the Earth" islands. If living on a tropical island in a laid-back culture, shopping in the local market, eating fresh seafood (and lot of rice!) every day, and enjoying year-round summer, while sharing the Good News to a people group that has zero believers sounds appealing to you, then this is the trip for you!
It is a Muslim culture so no tank tops or sleeveless shirts for males or females. Females should wear 3/4 length or full length long sleeve shirts and skirts to the ankles or pants, no shorts. If swimming, females may wear knee-length shorts with a rash guard type shirt. They also do not use their left hand when handing someone something as their left hand is considered "unclean."
There is a cluster of islands and the team will be walking around these islands. These are very tropical islands, so the weather is generally always sunny, except during rainy season. The average temperature is between 88-94. The islands are surrounded by coral reefs and much of the islands are made up of coral rock as well.
Will stay in a guest house that most likely will have a shared bathroom and/or kitchen with other college students
Home base will be on a small, remote island with limited medical facilities. When making trips to further islands, there will be a great deal of boat riding, long hikes wearing a heavy backpack with some hills, tropical weather with average temperatures around 88-94 year round and extremely humid, sleeping on mats, and diet with a lot of rice/fish/noodles.
Anyone that may require immediate medical attention for a chronic condition should not apply for this job.
