    East Asia - May (5037)

    East Asia 5/1/2020 to 5/10/2020 $2,550.00

    This team's primary focus is to support our long-term field partners as they minister to the unreached people of their region. With a heart for the nearby villages, the vision is to first reach the city through building relationships with students and sharing the gospel, and then equipping the saved to take the gospel back to their villages that have little to no gospel presence. Most of our time will be spent on college campuses (though there will be a visit to the village) and hanging out at local shops. We will focus on relationship-building on college campuses, sharing the gospel off-campus, and connecting people with the local team for discipleship. If you are highly relational and a self-starter, pray about joining our team! Our main day-to-day responsibilities will be initiating relationships and inviting students to lunch, coffee, sports, etc. as a way to get to know them and share Christ with them.
