Zambia is one of our recently developed mission opportunities and is located in a very rural area. It offers many of our general ministry opportunities while also providing the opportunity to dig and create clean water wells for people who don’t have the option of clean water. Teams will also have the opportunity to teach families how to farm or provide them with medical care. Due to the location of this ministry base travelers to Zambia should be aware that this is a very rural location and personal comforts are limited.
