Asia & Middle East

JAPAN • APRIL - Team is Complete!

     PURPOSE: Imagine if you lived in a foreign land with few peers & friends that you rarely got to visit. Loneliness would be hard to keep at bay. The times that you actually were able to gather with peers would be priceless! This is the life & mission of TLC's mission partners in Japan, Ken & the late Bola Taylor and their three children. Once per year the Taylor family is able to gather with their missionary peers at a retreat. To ensure that this precious time is as need-meeting & fulfilling as possible, Ken asks us to come and run the youth component of the retreat—this allows the the weary missionary adults to be free to attend to their own needs and be refreshed. And they can't say enough about "what an incredible blessing" this is for them! That is why we go! So if you have a heart to serve missionaries and minister to their (a super group of) "M.K.s" (Missionary Kids) & teens, then this is the mission for you!

COST: Approximately $2000 (Includes air and ground transportation, food and lodging, etc.)

ADDITIONAL COSTS: Passport and souvenirs & extras on “fun” day

SKILLS DESIRED: People with a heart for teens and children, feel comfortable helping with youth bible studies, and recreation.
