Servants in Faith and Technology
Relationship with Mt. Bethel
In 2008, SIFAT asked Carey Akin to send a team to support a large project to build a footbridge over a dangerous river. This was unlike any mission trip we had supported previously, but became one of our most rewarding. We have invested in a training facility in Costa Rica which will enable us to offer family-friendly mission experiences. In years not affected by travel restrictions, Mt. Bethel Missions typically offers a Men’s Mission trip to Bolivia. Our youth have also been part of a “Learn and Serve” Summer Experience with this partner.
This mountain-side outpost has become a beacon for Christianity in an otherwise unchurched valley of over 10,000 Quechua natives, descendants of the Incas, where the average income is $97 per year. Before the Gospel was shared, this valley still worshipped the ancient Incan gods.
How You Can Help
- International mission trips (usually an annual men’s team to Bolivia)* This experience is organized through Mt. Bethel Missions. For more information, contact our Missions Ministry.
- Learn and Serve through summer youth training, an immersive retreat that exposes those who have not encountered extreme poverty to experience it in their “Urban Slum” or “Global Village” training environments.
*During COVID, travel has been halted to most areas and these experiences are not available.
