Japan (Trip is full)

Japan has a population of 126 million souls and only 1% are Christian. Many Japanese people have never even heard the name Jesus. Our goal on this trip is to do many prayer drives on the tropical island of Okinawa, support the established churches, and evangelism. We will have a lot of fun while actively advancing the kingdom of God. We hope to include some tourism in mainland Japan as well. Missionaries Ed and Naomi Hosmer and the great missionary support team in the region, will be working together to see a successful and impactful AYC trip.

Serve Project

Plan to serve the people by participating in beach cleanup, as well as painting a local church.


I have met so many people through AYC and my personal network spans globally because of it. But its not just ANY people that I have met. Its the servants. The ones who give up so much to take the gospel to every nation, and the ones who skimped and saved to experience one week giving of themselves to others. Those who have gone for a few months, to those who live on the mission field. Those overseas and those on home soil. The ones who face down loneliness, discouragement, and isolation to do what God has called them to do. I’m proud to know the servants. I have learned so much about the servants heart in the years of going on AYC trips. Every trip gives me more insight on how I can serve, both in my church and my community. I wouldn’t trade the experiences I’ve had, the places and things I’ve seen, the lessons I’ve learned, and the people I’ve met for anything offered.
