Each year, they send 40 to 50 teams around the world to countries including El Salvador, East Africa, India, the Pacific, Central Asia, Nicaragua, the Middle East and many others. Through these trips, we disciple participants, grow national churches, share the gospel and provide care to the poor and needy.
