Sea Tribes Summer 2019 Outreach
With millions of unreached people in the vast area of Southeast Asia, we are given an opportunity to be part of an outreach team. Not only will our group have the chance to experience the beauty of the islands, vast jungle, and beautiful people, but we will also be fully immersed into the culture of the locals by staying in their homes. As a team we will be helping with community development including medical screenings, teaching English and health education, and participating in a village project. We will have the opportunity to share our stories and lives as God enables while participating in cultural events.
