What the Mission Trip Will Be Like
This trip represents a unique opportunity to travel with Royal Servants to a Muslim majority location in the 10/40 window, located in the northwest part of Africa. Due to the sensitive nature of doing ministry in this context, we can not publish the name of this country. But contact us directly and weâ€™d love to tell you in person!
This location is rich and vibrant with culture. Travelers are warmly welcomed and there are endless sights to see. The population is estimated to be over 99% Muslim. And though this nation is known for its religious tolerance and hospitality, sharing your faith in this context will be no small task, but desperately needed.
Ministryâ€” No street performances, public announcements, or gathering crowds here. Instead youâ€™ll break up into small groups and travel on foot, meeting people throughout the city, making friends and striking up conversations. These conversations will take place with shop owners, locals, travelers, and the list goes on. Youâ€™ll use these opportunities to turn the conversation into something more meaningful, discussing life, customs, and faith. Get an in-depth and firsthand understanding of Islamic tradition, and engage meaningfully with individuals who hold those traditions close to their hearts. Youâ€™ll have the opportunity to break down cultural barriers, overcome derogatory stereotypes on both sides, and find ways to connect personally with others whose lives are very different from your own. These conversations wonâ€™t always be easy, and will require practice, but you can expect to get plenty of that. Another crucial element of ministry on this trip is going to be bringing serious worship and prayer to this part of the world. Youâ€™ll be engaging daily in extended times of prayer on matters both specific and broad. Youâ€™ll also engage in daily worship next to long-term missionaries who are calling on God to move in big ways in this country. The purpose of these times will be to seek sustenance from God in a challenging environment, and to exalt His name in a place where so few ever do.
Adventureâ€”Trains, buses, taxis, ferries, and camels offer some unique options for transportation. Explore the open air markets, try food unique to this part of the world, and meander the ancient narrow streets. This trip is about seeing what is possible and thoughtfully soaking in every experience. Allowing God to direct your steps means just about anything can happen and rarely is it comfortable or easy. But when is true adventure ever comfortable or easy?
Experience Cultureâ€”First time experiences will be your new normal as you explore this transient region frequented by tourists, heavily influenced by Western culture, yet still rooted in ancient traditions. This place has an incredibly rich heritage with art, music, and cuisine that stands apart from the rest of the world. Witness the wild beauty in everyday life, and stick around long enough for this place to start to feel like home.
