Imagine a nation where there are no churches. The absence of Christ’s love is evident. You can feel the oppression when you first set foot in this nation. For centuries the enemy has shackled the beautiful people of the islands. God desires their worship and deserves their recognition.
In November 2020, GoTEN will join 100+ mission teams to engage this unreached nation with prayer, love and Truth. A small number of missionaries have been actively at work in the shadows among the people of this isolated nation for decades. It is a difficult place to share the Good News largely due to the overwhelming presence and control of Islam. In addition this island nation is small in both population and geography presenting greater challenges.
The mission of the 100+ mission teams from all over the world is to cover every inhabited islands with prayer, love and Truth. The vision is similar to that of Joshua who marched around the city of Jericho six days with the army of the Lord. On the seventh day, the walls fell and the Kingdom of God expanded into Jericho.

WHO CAN GO?
This is a remote location, so participants will get to experience what it’s like to pioneer Christian work where it currently does not exist. This is a trip for the serious world traveler, someone looking for a challenge and adventure. Participants should be at least 18 years of age and physically fit. We need people who are willing to step out of their comfort zones and who are passionate about seeing the Gospel advance to the unreached and unengaged.
