Your objective is to share boldly with as many people as possible and provide detailed feedback to your supervisors. As a tourist, you will have opportunities to hang out at cafes, beaches, markets, etc and to use your interests such as art, music, surfing, etc to connect with locals. You will stay in rented apartments, hostels or hotels so a flexible attitude and a team player is a must. Your supervisors will train you to share the gospel and begin short term discipleship before sending you off to explore the cities with one of us as a guide at times. You will be pushed and challenged but your hard work will provide long term fruit for the ministry here. We will provide you with discreet materials to distribute to any locals who show interest in the gospel, through which they can contact us long after you leave.
Girls should dress modestly (no tank tops or shorts except at beach), however modest beach attire is okay if swimming or surfing. Girls should not travel or be out at night alone nor talk to men apart from interactions with store owners, waiters, etc. Light, flowy skirts or pants are ideal for walking around the city or visiting a home. Jeans will be too hot for guys and girls as there is no air conditioning in most places. Guys can wear shorts.
You will spend the Summer in three coastal cities, with populations of approximately 100,000, 500,000, and 200,000, nearly 100% of whom are Muslim. It will be hot & mildly humid with a coastal breeze.
You will stay in either a vacation apartment or cheap hotel/hostel in each place, depending on availability. You may or may not have a kitchen for cooking, though street food is cheap and easy to find. You will probably share a bedroom so prepare to be flexible.
Must be in good health, able to walk, climb stairs, and swim.
Equipment to Bring:
Comfortable, modest clothes for warm weather, modest swimwear, shoes for walking and flip flops for beach. Anything that might assist in meeting people such as camera, musical instrument, art supplies, etc. Backpack is better than suitcase.
