AIM eSwatini Base
Children’s Ministry, Sports Ministry, Community Development
The Kingdom of eSwatini (formerly known as Swaziland) is a small country neighboring South Africa & Mozambique. Ravaged by the HIV/AIDS pandemic, Swaziland has the highest HIV/AIDS rate in the world, leaving thousands of children — 12% of the population — without parents. In addition, 40% of all Swazis live on less than $1.25 per day, which is below the international poverty line. But we believe God has a redemptive plan for Swaziland. The key to a nation’s future is its children — in the care for their physical well being, the fulfillment of basic needs like food, clean water, and shelter, and in their education.
Adventures in Missions has made a long term commitment in eSwatini. With our base celebrating 20+ years of ministry, we are thankful for what the Lord has done here and excited for what the future holds. The base in Eswatini has a vision to see a generation of children raised up to take leadership of their country, spread the Gospel to the world, and create an abundant and healthy future for their nation. Come alongside our Swazi staff as they reach their communities through feeding programs, agriculture projects, and leadership programs to raise the next generation of Swazi leaders.
SAMPLE MINISTRY DAY
A day at the Adventures Swaziland base would look like hopping in the van after breakfast and heading to one of the nearby CarePoints. Welcoming the kids as they arrive and assisting the CarePoint leadership with day-to-day operations, such as preparing meals, teaching, leading activities, and administrative work.) Hand washing your clothes before cooking dinner with your teammates. And worshiping together before heading to bed.
