Amazon Boat Trip Information

The Amazon mission trip holds a tremendous fascination for those who have an adventurous and compassionate heart. Expect to travel up and down the Amazon, Solimões and Negro Rivers on a double-decker boat called the Discovery that serves as both housing and transportation. You will see long stretches of uninhabited waterway connecting remote villages, towns and isolated homes along the banks. Every trip we make will have a specific service mission at its core. This may include training, vacation bible study programming with kids, medical care, home visits and construction projects.  Our teams always bring the love of Jesus and share the Good News.
