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 initiatives to strengthen families and develop communities, like feeding programs, agriculture projects, and leadership programs to raise the next generation of Swazi leaders.
A typical day in eSwatini could look like:
In the morning, you might eat breakfast with your team. Then walk or take a short ride to one of our 40 carepoints serving families throughout eSwatini. Your team will assist with children's ministry and education programs. You will also help with the food distribution projects. In the afternoon, you might help with one of our agricultural projects. As the sun sets, your team will prepare supper together and have time to worship and have fun as a team.
