Spend the summer as a camp counselor in Kenya making a lasting impact in the lies of campers. Teach a craft or sport, perform a crazy skit, share devotions & simply be a friend to this group of international campers. Some come from Christian backgrounds and others hear about Jesus for the first time during camp. Meet each child where they are & point them to Jesus.
Spend non-camp weeks partnering with local ministries serving alongside them in local communities. (Slums, building projects, rural evangelism) This is a team in partnershipi with a local GCC and will not be working with IMB personnel.
Your first stop will be a joint orientation with other Nehemiah Teams. Learning the skills needed to carry out your assignment as well as team building will fill these first few days. Your team will then fly to your final destination for the summer. Following your ministry time you will return to the US for a joint debrief... sharing all God has done over the summer.
Local orientation will help with cultural issues
