South Korea, also known as the Republic of Korea, is a modern nation full of history. Once one united country on the Korean Peninsula, South Korea now is the southern part of a split Korea. North Korea, its neighbor, grabs many headlines here in the U.S. for its political views and relationship with the nations in the region. Regardless of what the media portrays, South Korea still very much desires to unite (when the time is right) with the North. With a large Christian population, South Korea is a wonderful place to serve alongside brothers and sisters in Christ from another continent while reaching even more people with the Gospel.
While in South Korea, your team will be sharing Christ while teaching basic English to children. Using curriculum developed by YMI and Awana Korea, you will run 3-5 day English camps. During these camps your team will have time for instruction, games, songs with motions, and a chance to share about who Jesus is and how He has made a difference in your life.
