Jesus Film Mission Trip African Adventure, The Gambia (1369)
The Gambia is the smallest country in Africa, but it has a big heart. The Gambians will welcome us to their country with warm hospitality, despite their poverty. They are known worldwide for their spontaneous, warm smiles and their peace-loving natures. They live harmoniously in mixed communities of nine different ethnic groups, freely exercising their religious and cultural traditions. As a Westerner, you have the potential to reach entire communities in West Africa. Gambians will listen to you with warm hospitality—often simply because you differ from them. Because most Africans are deeply “spiritual” people, you will have many opportunities to easily share your faith in Christ through the use of your personal faith story and the JESUS film. We are planning a variety of possible activities including pastor/leader training, speaking with university students, and assisting with church outreach ministries. We may also have opportunities to show the JESUS film. On this trip you will learn how to use the Jesus Film® app, so you can show short films in their language to help open spiritual conversations. Come to Africa! Now is your chance to share your faith with a listening people who so desperately need to know Jesus. We are expecting God to do the extraordinary. At Jesus Film Mission Trips, our vision is to take the gospel where Christ is not known (Romans 15:20). Our mission is to partner with national ministries by taking volunteers from the body of Christ on short-term trips to evangelize the least-reached using “JESUS” film products. With more than 40 mission trips available each year, our experienced team leaders provide safe and meaningful mission experiences for teams ranging from 5 to 30 participants. These teams travel to more than 30 different countries to distribute copies of the “JESUS” film in the local languages. The teams also host large outdoor film showing, resulting in many viewers coming to know Christ personally. Since 1997 we have taken more than 7,000 individuals to some of the most unreached people groups in the world.
