Join us this summer as we serve alongside long-term workers in South Asia! This mid-term trip will be strategically focused on prayer, demonstrating the gospel through service, and personal evangelism. On this trip, you can expect to engage with locals, learn about their culture, serve them, offer to pray with them, and seek to share the gospel with them! Long-term teams in this area work in the slums, high rises, and city streets to proclaim His good news, strengthen disciples, and multiply churches.
As team members are learning from and engaging with others, they should have a heart posture of humility and remember that culture does not make people, people make the culture. Trip participants will be part of the long-term team and are expected to participate in all activities, events, fasts, meals, prayer meetings, work meetings, etc. Be ready to be flexible, as activities are often subject to change due to various factors (e.g. last-minute invite to a village event).
Other expectations include:
Safety protocols will be developed based on the guidelines provided by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the US State Department posted on The Austin Stone trips website for regular access.
Everything you need for your trip is included in the trip cost, which can be viewed here. These amounts are based on preparation costs and costs given to us by the field partner.
