Reaching out to the villages along the Nistru River with the Gospel, encouraging the local churches, reaching children and youth with the love of Jesus, and worshiping God in the splendor of nature. Through this cross-cultural experience, you will have the amazing opportunity to grow in your faith and relationship with God.

Depending on the village, the team may also have the opportunity to visit families and elderly in their homes and demonstrate the love of Christ through practical service. The team will camp each night and will be on the river for 3 to 5 hours each day or every other day.
