Connect with the World — Short-term Missions Trips


Connect with the Commission
Jesus tells us in His Word to go into all the world and preach the gospel. However, for many of us, this endeavor may seem overwhelming.

Where would I go?
How would I get there?
What would I do once I am there?


BIMI's Connect short-term program may be the answer. By joining a Connect team, individuals will have an opportunity to use their talents and abilities for the cause of Christ.

Each Connect trip is led by experienced BIMI field directors who organize and oversee all necessary details.

Prayerfully consider becoming a part of BIMI Connect. You will be glad you did!

Amazon Med-Evangelism (Guyana)

Dates: May 16–26, 2022 (11 days)
Cost: $1,690
Team size: 25

Continue the mission of the Great Physician and be a part of the 2022 Amazon Connect Team as we travel to the remote regions of the Amazon Basin with a team of volunteer medical personnel and evangelists. The provision of medical care is a key which opens the door in areas otherwise left closed to the Gospel message, making possible a church plant.

The Place of the greatest need is often the most difficult to access. Guyana is one of the nine South American countries that shares the Amazon Basin. The Amazon Basin holds the largest concentration of uncontacted people anywhere on earth. We will travel by bus to minister in the villages around Georgetown and by boat up river tributaries to remote villages in Essequibo river region.
The People of the Amazon are made up of three groups: the local fishing villages, the indigenous tribes, and uncontacted tribes. We will focus our work among the villages around Georgetown and fishing villages where English is the predominate language spoken.
The Purpose of our Med-evangelism Team is to work with our national pastors to evangelize and open new areas in villages where they seek to plant new churches. The Amazon is one of the least evangelized regions of Latin America. Our team will be involved in organized mass evangelism and will be treating people clinically through the mobile med clinics.
You will experience firsthand several aspects unique to the Amazon such as jungle boat ministry, school evangelism, tropical wildlife, and unique Guyanese hospitality.

BIMI CONNECT TRIP IDEAS/THOUGHTS
Our visit to Costa Rica will provide each member of our team a full-circle view of the many aspects of missions and missionaries in this Latin American country. We will be visiting several different works, all church planting but with different types of ministries, in different climates, in different areas reaching different groups of people.

Our trip is a fact-finding trip. The purpose is two-fold. First, we want those who travel with us to get to know the missionaries first hand and to see the day-to-day ministry of the field missionaries. Second, we hope that each member of our group has a renewed burden for the lost world and that they will pray for the missionaries seeking to win them.

MISSIONARIES THAT WE WILL VISIT
Jeremy & Michelle Blanz
Rick & Shannon Dove
Brent & Jennifer Hoffman
