This coastal nation on the end of the Iberian Peninsula, was once one of the foremost powers in the world. As it settled lands in the Americas, Portugal sent missionaries to share the message of Christ. Now Portugal is one of many Western European nations in need of assistance, as missionary partners there are asking for teams of people to come from other parts of the world to share the Gospel with their people. Go on this trip and play a part in once again proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ in this nation.
While in country, you will work in partnership with local missionaries. During your stay, you will be given opportunities to present the Gospel while running an "American" camp and ministering to the children attending. If you are passionate about camp or camp-style ministry, then this is the trip for you!
