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

Trip 2:
Dates: July 26–August 5, 2021
Cost: $1,590
Team size: 50

Continue the mission of the Great Physician and be a part of the 2021 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. Amazon’s Vale do Javari holds the largest concentration of uncontacted people anywhere on earth. We will travel by boat up the Amazon River and other tributaries, evangelizing villages in Brazil, Peru, and Colombia.

The People in the Vale do Javari are made up of three groups: the local fishing villages, the indigenous tribes, and uncontacted tribes. We will focus our work among the fishing villages or ribeirinhos, where Portuguese and Spanish are the predominate languages.

The Purpose of our Med-evangelism Team is to work with our national pastors to evangelize villages where they are presently working as well as to open new areas in which 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 treating people clinically through the mobile med clinics.

You will experience firsthand several aspects unique to the Amazon such as Jungle Boat Ministry, Três Fronteiras, day visit to Dolphin Bay, and jungle wildlife.

Participant Profile:
18–60 years old; 16- & 17-year-olds who are accompanied by a parent (Medical professionals welcome, but medical knowledge not necessary)
