Upcoming Journeys

United Kingdom:

FBC has partnered with UK-USA ministries for at least a three- year term.  During that time we will be sponsoring the work Mike Taylor and his family are busy planting in this post-modern area of the world.  Our students in particular will be taking journeys to Northern England to share the gospel with children and youth.

Ages: Youth or College and Adult sponsors
Specific abilities/gifts: love to share your faith, love to work with children/youth.
Cost: $1500 (estimated)
Next dates: TBA

Guatemala:

Guatemala is our longest running partnership that started almost 20 years ago.   This journey is broken into two separate weeks.  The first week is the mobile team that travels around the area seeing patients.  In 2014 we plan to add a group to week one to work in the schools.  The second week focuses on the work/surgeries in the clinic that we built.

Ages: Youth (16+,with a parent)/College/Adults
Specific abilities/gifts: moderately physically strenuous, medical training is a plus but not a requirement; Spanish is helpful.
Cost: $975
Next dates: Week 1, Mobile Team/School Outreach- TBA
Week 2, Hospital Team- TBA
(Week 2 participants must be approved by FBC Mount Pleasant)

Portugal:

Portugal is a place that is not easy to share the gospel.  Like much of Europe, Portugal is very post-modern and most people there are not interested in religion.  We will be taking groups to help with sports camps near Lisbon.  Our missionaries there have had great success with outreach through sports.  This year we will be working with a youth basketball camp.  Coaching/teaching sports give us great opportunities to share our faith.

Ages: College age to Adults
Specific abilities/gifts: Athletic experience is a plus but not required. Coaches and former athletes are ideal for this ministry. Sharing your faith one on one.
Cost: $1500
Next dates: TBA

Cuba:

The gospel is spreading fast in Cuba!  As communism softens a bit in Cuba, God is opening the doors for more opportunities there!  Our team will be assisting missionary John Seale who has been working in Cuba for several years.  We do construction work, children’s ministry, discipleship classes, and anything else to support the local church in Cuba.

Ages: College age to Adults

Dallas, TX- Operation Christmas Child, Samaritan’s Purse

We will be taking a group to work in a regional distribution center.  All those shoeboxes have to be sorted and checked and re-packed to go all over the world!  This is a great way to serve and just about anyone can do this!  We will spend four days and three nights working at a warehouse in Dallas.  Great trip for Senior Adults!
