What the Mission Trip Will Be Like
A few years ago, the refugee crisis on the borders of Northern Macedonia and Greece was all over the news. While the news cycle seems to have moved on, there are still thousands of refugees who canâ€™t - theyâ€™re living in limbo, in desperate need of hope. What a privilege to be able to offer them the hope that comes from the Gospel! Whether youâ€™re serving on the refugee border or performing on the streets of Athens, youâ€™ll have many opportunities to share the Gospel in some of the same places the Apostle Paul preached centuries before.
Ministry-A few years ago, Reign Ministries, in partnership with SEND International, sent a team to work inside a refugee camp situated on the border of Northern Macedonia and Serbia. The trip was a huge success, and weâ€™ve been asked to send another team.
Youâ€™ll have a variety of creative and unique opportunities to share the gospel as you help meet some of the practical needs many have in their daily lives. This will include working with missionaries and churches partners as they plant the seeds of the Gospel in their communities. What does this look like? Perhaps youâ€™ll help teach English, lead games at a Polish immigrant youth camp, or help with â€śbeautification projectsâ€ť throughout cities, picking up trash or painting over graffiti. Ministry in Greece and Macedonia is hard work, but we believe these exciting platforms for serving will help us build deeper relationships and will provide a natural opportunity to share the hope we have in Christ.
Adventure - To quote the man himself, Aristotle once said, â€śAdventure is worthwhile.â€ť You and your teammates just may have the opportunity to re-trace the footsteps of Paul as you make your way through this Biblically-historic corner of the world. Whether you find yourself in the shadows of Alexander the Greatâ€™s statue in Skopje, or cooling off with gelato at the base of the Parthenon in Athens, youâ€™ll be at no loss of adventure and ways to explore this sunny corner of Europe.
Experience Culture - What makes Northern Macedonia and Greece so unique is that both boost a culture that has been alive and flourishing for over 3,000 years! So much of the modern world has been shaped and formed by Greek culture and thinking: democracy, education, medicine, philosophy, and entertainment. Youâ€™ll experience the land of Greek mythology, the birthplace of the Olympics, the feisty nature of Greek yiayias, and the best Greek yogurt youâ€™ll ever have in your life (Yoplait will never be the same). Northern Macedonia is home to famed Mother Teresa, with her birthplace just minutes away from the central square of Skopje. While both countries hold beautiful and unique cultural qualities, easily their best offerings to the world are the people themselves! After experiencing their warm hearts, abundant generosity, and infectious laughter, youâ€™ll have a hard time leaving.
