Team of the Week: Riverboat Evangelism

Baptism with summer 2016 team
Venture to the ends of the earth with the Riverboat Team in Eastern Samar. Ride boats, both large & small, to travel 1-2 hours up the main rivers, hiking in to villages to share the Good News. Your team will be staying in close quarters, housing in a brick or wooden building. Your daily chores will include fetching water, filtering the water, hand washing your clothes, packing your bedroll, & cooking your food... then you'll spend the rest of your day sharing the Good News with those you're living around.

Your first stop will be a joint orientation in the US with other Nehemiah Teams. Learning the skills needed to carry out your assignment as well as team building will fill these first few days. Then your team will fly to Tacloban City, followed by ground transportation over to the island of Samar. The last mode of transportation will be the riverboat to your target villages. At the end of the summer, you will gather once again in the US for a joint debrief... sharing all that God has done.
