Summit extreme – Reaching the Himalayan Plateaus (5m)

In this fairly remote country in the Himalayas, many people have never heard of God’s love. Millions of people are untouched by the transformative impact of the gospel. This is simply because no one has been there, yet!

When you join Summit, for five or nine months, a significant part of your time is spend in the Himalayan plateaus, at high altitudes and in restricted areas. While travelling in small groups through the villages we build relationships, share the gospel and sleep at local homes. Pray for people who never had a chance to hear about God’s love. Time spend on trek will help you see, and be a part of, what God is doing to expand His Kingdom to the least reached peoples of the Himalayas.

Your first month will have a set schedule with practical teachings, language study, Summit outreaches, team activities, and a short trek. This will prepare you for trekking. We have weekly Bible studies and on most weekends we attend a local church. Five month members will be send on trek four times.

You are ready and most welcome to join when you: have a basic understanding of English language; will be flexible with any changes or circumstances; are passionate about sharing His truth with others.
Your new home will be in the nation’s capital. Together with other international team members you share a flat, and live close to where the rest of the team lives. You are responsible for practical things like shopping, cooking and cleaning. On trek you stay at local homes or churches. Be prepared to sleep on whatever you bring or what is provided for you.
Local Asian food will be served, especially during trekking (lots of rice!). Be ready to enjoy the food served for the team. Please ask for advise if you have dietary restrictions.
You are responsible to arrange and pay your own flight. We will pick you up at the airport. All other travel within the country will be taken care of. Unfortunately it's not possible to stay longer, as your visa will expire.
You will need to be in reasonable good health, both physically and emotionally. Be prepared for bumpy bus rides, long hikes in mountainous areas and interaction with local people. Please inform us if you have any health issues.

Please check with your local OM office or the nearest embassy for visa requirements. Majority of nationalities can get visa upon arrival.

There is an information packet available after accepting your application. This packet will contain all the necessary details about what to bring and not to bring.
