Uruguay - 2022

Discover the jewel of South America! Uruguay is a land of contrasts where you can walk on cobblestone streets while gazing upon sleek, modern architecture. This trip will focus on providing care for spiritual and physical needs. Students will minister in congregations in the sprawling metropolis of Montevideo and quaint rural towns of Uruguay’s rustic interior. They will also feed the hungry and repair a local church building.

AYC, for me, was the single most life changing trip of my life. It was life changing to see 33 Maasai tribe members receive the Holy Ghost, you could see the sweet Holy Spirit all over them. AYC gave me the opportunity to explore my love for missions, and even further my life in missions. I had the feeling I was called to global missions, my AYC trip completely confirmed that for me.
