Short-Term Missions Trip with Encounter
July 28-August 4
Cost $300, plus airfare to Albuquerque, NM
The Encounter Program is designed to benefit the mission, the local church, and, above all, the individual participant. This takes commitment by all who are involved. The bulk of Encounter work will involve some type of construction, maintenance, or other type of project. Some ministry work may be done, but keep in mind that we are there only to help the local church where they cannot do it by themselves–not to do it for them.
We are a multi-ministerial Christian organization located in Tse Bonito, New Mexico. Our focus and energy is training leaders, organizing events, building business, and most importantly, spreading the good news of the Life, Death, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ to Native America in the best way we can.
Our team includes a wide range of talents and passions that all cooperate in order to live life as a body of Christ and be seen as a light in the heart of the Native American people. Though we come from diverse denominations, we have a common goal to follow Jesus to reach Indigenous communities.
A Missionary Is Like You
Missionaries are human. They are just like other Christians, and face the same temptations and triumphs as those who labor for the Lord at home. If you cannot serve God at home, you will not want to serve Him under the difficult conditions of missionary life. Missionaries often spend much of their time doing physical work and only a very small portion of their work doing spiritual ministry. This is probably how your mission experience will be. Missionary work often requires years spent clearing the land, preparing the soil, watering, and planting seeds before significant fruit is seen.
