Mission Trip Details

 

Join us as we venture to the breathtaking Kathmandu, Nepal nestled in the majestic Himalayas, reaching the unreached in Nepal, a country that has more temples than houses, more gods than people, and more holy days than there are days in the year. Every day in Nepal brings the unexpected and unforgettable!

From monkey temples to rural mountain villages to crowded dusty streets, this trip is filled with the adventure of experiencing the amazing flavors of Nepal.  Curry and milk tea will fuel your journey as you pour your attention on a country that is in need of spiritual hope.

 

In 2015, Nepal experienced a major earthquake and the people of Nepal are still picking up the pieces of their broken country.  Still recovering, we plan to be the hands and feet of Jesus, serve in many ways and share His love with this nation.

 

We will adventure into breathtakingly beautiful mountain villages where the local ways of life have been the same for centuries. In the mountain villages surrounding Kathmandu, we are invited to minister to the people, serve, and play games with the children living in poverty.

 

Back in the bustling city of Kathmandu, we'll minister to hundreds of orphans living in the poorest slum area of the city. We will host Vacation Bible School, where we will have games, worship, crafts, and share with these children how they are not forgotten or unloved!

 

Come join us in 2022!  Spend your time next summer ministering to orphaned kids through VBS, sports outreaches and more...ministering in the villages outside Kathmandu, and helping to provide hope, love, and care for such beautiful people. An amazing adventure of serving this unique and beautiful culture will blow you away as you love people way beyond what you could imagine. 

 

3-Day Himalayas Trek

Located just 40 miles from the capital, the Kathmandu valley trek is the perfect 3-day trek that offers stunning scenery, cultural heritage, and spectacular views – all rolled into just 3 days.

We'll begin in the town of Sundarijal before trekking up into the hills. We'll pass through several traditional villages, taking in the terraced rice fields and lush forests. Once we arrive at Jhule village, we'll be greeted with panoramic views of the surrounding mountains, including Everest! We'll stay overnight in the village of Nagarkot,  famous for its incredible sunrise views over the Himalayas. The trek ends at the stunning Changu Narayan temple - a UNESCO World Heritage listed site.

Health-Extended Trip

Altitude – Our trip to Kathmandu, Nepal will take us to remote regions at higher altitudes surrounding Kathmandu. We always take our time to acclimatize properly by allowing for additional rest. When gaining in altitude above 10,000 feet, we have included sufficient rest or “layover” time to ensure that you acclimatize properly. While many people may experience minor ill effects from high altitudes, there are some who have persistent symptoms that require returning to a lower altitude. We do our best to allow a pace for everyone to acclimatize. We cannot determine how you will do at higher altitudes, but being in the best shape possible and having a lower body fat percentage will help greatly. Should you require any medication whatsoever, you must provide your own and be able to administer it yourself. Medical supplies in Nepal are not reliable or guaranteed, though we will have a fully stocked medical kit on the trip.

 

 

Training

Training for this trip will take place at the Embassy Suites in Miami, FL. (Lodging can be subject to change.)

 

Training consists of specific ministry and outreach information, going over rules and safety regulations, team bonding time, and an evening meeting with worship and small group prayer.
