The main strategy of any team that iGo Global sends out is plugging into the ancient work of God. All of our teams work under the umbrella of International Mission Board Missionaries who live in the city where we send teams. In other words, we do not pre-package our trips. We partner with missionaries, and ask them to use our teams however they best see fit.
Therefore, the schedule is very flexible. We want our students to go with no expectations concerning what they will or will not “get to do.” That attitude of an iGo student should be, “I’ll do whatever I can to help the missionaries and plug into their strategy.” That being said, there are a few things EVERY student on this trip will do.
Prayerwalking Our teams spend a lot of time praying because we, and the missionaries, know that “A person can not receive one thing unless it is given to him from heaven” (John 3:27). Therefore, students will spend a lot of time walking through different areas of the city praying on-sight with insight.
Relational Evangelism Each trek will go to the same area of the city every day to spend time praying that God will bless them with divine appointments. Students will then try to meet people in that area and make at least one significant friendship. The main goal is for students to be able to share the Gospel in the context of a friendship.
A Typical Day in the Uk
Morning Training-The morning will be spent with an inward focus. After breakfast, students will have time to do their own personal devotion / reading. Then the missionary will do some teaching and will prepare the team for the ministry ahead.
Afternoon Ministry- Students will be broken up into smaller groups of about 6-10 people called “treks.” These treks will stay together all week and go to the same area of the city every day. This could be a park, a university, a coffee shop, or some other place where people usually gather. This is where students will engage in prayer walking and relational evangelism. Each trek will be accompanied by one of the missionary’s interns and an adult chaperone.
Evening Ministry- The treks will all meet together in the evening to share what happened that day. This is always a great time of celebration and a chance to pray for what God is doing through the other treks.
