What would your 2022 mission trip look like?

The Washington DC Metro area has a large community of immigrants and refugees from all over the world. Among the students we serve, many have come because their land is torn by war, many have come because of state sponsored genocide, and others from fear of violence. Of the students we serve, 75% are Muslim. With the influx of Afghan refugees in the area, this team will be seeking to serve those individuals as well. Due to language and cultural barriers, immigrants and refugees are often restricted to their homes and families. English classes, though available, are expensive and infrequent. So, much of their community is still back in their home countries, and they have few opportunities to form new friendships.

This team’s goal is to meet the needs of these immigrants holistically through English-learning, community-building, and gospel-sharing. They offer inexpensive classes, childcare, a daily Bible lesson and hospitality events. Adult English classes also provide a platform through which you can share the hope we have in Jesus. In addition, these classes allow those who come to interact with diverse students of similar backgrounds as well as local teachers.

We do not just want to care for individuals, but for the whole family. That’s where you come in. This summer, we hope to form relationships with our students’ children and bring the whole family into our community. We will do this by running a summer programme that provides ESL classes for adults, childcare for preschool kids, and programme activities for youth. Edgers will be putting on the youth summer programme that focuses on art, science, lego building, and drama.

Edgers will be leading the way to forming these familial relationships. They will lead the children in activities during ESL class time, support the team, aid the activity leaders, engage in hospitality events throughout the week and learn to participate in cross-cultural ministry from experienced missionaries.

Summer Trip: Foodie Team

Ministry

Religion
Buddhist | Hindu | Muslim | Tribal-Animist

What would your 2022 mission trip look like?

This city is a blend of unreached peoples, languages and beliefs impacting all parts of life. In a single Southeast Asian neighbourhood, you will often hear bells from the Hindu temple, smell incense from Buddhist and Taoist worshipers, and hear the Muslim call to prayer.

This location is a beautiful, equatorial tropical island. You will be in the suburbs, with both a large outdoor market and a large superstore less than ten minutes away. You will be a 45-minute flight from the capital. The island has an international airport along with several malls and other modern conveniences.

Yet, below the surface are many complexities. Followers of the world’s three largest non-Christian religions live on top of each other and coexist in everyday life. There is a wide array of social classes as well, ranging from:

  • Migrant workers from nearby countries
  • Local Muslims who speak little to no English
  • Hindus who speak mostly the local language and also English
  • Very wealthy East Asian Buddhist business people and property owners

There is a lot of seafood here. The climate is hot and humid year-round (33 degrees Celsius every day) and rain is often on the forecast.

And here’s a bonus: This island is considered one of the top-ten foodie destinations in the world!

2022 Edge Trip Activities

* Subject to change
  • Prayer walking. This is a regular part of the long-term team’s weekly routine. You will prayer walk different parts of the city at least two or three times a week.
  • Going out 2×2. You will learn the way that Jesus sent out His disciples in Luke 9-10 and Matthew 10 and then go out to practice these things several times a week.
  • Disciple-making training. The team will walk through the biblical principles of disciple-making and put them into practice together.

A team in South Asia is focussing on building relationships as they seek out People of Peace.

They hope that their relationships will lead to DBS groups and eventually churches.

Want to support a family in a mountainous region of South Asia through helping homeschool their kids? 

A family in South Asia is looking for someone to spend a few hours a day, 5 days a week, with their 3 children (ages 6, 7, and 10) helping them through their homeschool curriculum. This will free the parents for more effective language learning and local ministry, and will help the entire team minister more effectively in their area. The homeschool helper would be considered a full-fledged member of the ministry team, participating in worship times and accountability. Other ministry opportunities will arise and could be pursued in addition to helping with the children.

The family are open to a male or female. Accommodation is available with an existing team member (or separately) if the candidate is female. If the candidate is male, the team will assist him in finding accommodation.  The homeschool helper is needed for any length of time between now and Autumn of 2020. No teaching experience is strictly necessary.

The team is currently made up of 3 young families and a single woman.

If you can see yourself giving a year or so to this type of ministry, we’d love to hear from you!  Get in touch with our mission mentors today!
