Short-term Missions Trip
Love Moldova C - River Adventure Outreach (Moldova)
Reaching out to the villages along the Nistru River with the Gospel, encouraging the churches, reaching children and youth with the love of Jesus and worshiping God in the splendor of nature.
The most spectacular outreach ever offered by OM Moldova. This team will sail down the Nistru River and stop in different villages to encourage local believers and hold evangelistic programs.
Members of this team will build their own raft out of oil drums and wooden planks and float/row for ten days down the Nistru River in the east of Moldova. The team will stop each day at mostly un-evangelized villages along the river and partner with local believers where possible in sharing the Gospel through kids and youth programs as well as taking part in other evangelistic meetings and demonstrating the love of Christ through practical service in the villages. The team will camp each night, will be on the river for 3-5 hours each day and will coordinate programs each afternoon and evening in villages they visit.
Participants should be swimmers, adventurous, flexible, willing to be stretched and ready to camp each night in tents or under the stars. Do you have a passion to reach the lost by sharing share the Gospel of Jesus Christ? Come and join our river outreach!
