You will learn a local language, culture, and spiritual history in order to better understand how to engage in locally sustainable patterns of disciple making. You will use your professional skills in either basketball coaching, fitness training, or English teaching in order to build relationships, foster community and provide opportunities of personal growth and joy for refugees.
