  • Friday: Travel; sightseeing
  • Saturday: Travel home

What are the accommodations?

Your team will stay at Mission Housing Ministries which is set up like a boarding house with shared bathrooms down the hall.

What will we eat?

The Mission House cooks prepare meals for our teams using cleaning and food preparation processes that help keep teams healthy and strong for ministry. The meals are always good and have an authentic local flair.
