By being passionate about sharing your faith, you will be creating contacts and relationships that give you the opportunity for ministering to their needs and also you will give the opportunity for our local team to follow up with those contacts. This ministry will also provide you with experiences and tools for your own future personal ministry in your home country.
This is an opportunity to cycle through Israel and enjoying the Land of the Bible while looking for situations to connect with people, share the Message and your testimony, visit and create contacts and pray for the lost and hopeless. Many of the people groups in Israel are considered unreached so there are many ways in which to engage in conversation with locals as the Lord leads.
We will be cycling from north to south as we seek for opportunities to spread the Gospel with people on the road, in small kibbutzim, towns and cities.
