CULTURAL INFORMATION
Cape Verde is a string of islands 350 miles off the west coast of Africa. CV, claimed its independence from Portugal in 1975. It is one of, if not the most stable and democratic countries in all of Africa. Everyone on the island speaks Portuguese, but the further you get from the city, and into the villages, you will find many speak Creole.

MINISTRY
There are currently 65 unreached, unengaged villages on the main island of Santiago. The Gospel has only recently taken hold in CV, but since then, it is spreading at a rapid pace. There is need for discipleship of new believers and to carry the Gospel to villages who have never heard.

DAY TO DAY LIFE
Students will start their day working at Projecto Pepe. This is a children’s ministry and a great opportunity to practice your Portuguese. Then, students will attend their Portuguese classes. In the evening, there is ministry going on every night at the church or in town. Everything from a basketball ministry, to soccer, to discipleship groups, to evangelism. This is a great time to try a lot of different things to find where you can use your gifts and talents. The 2nd half of the year (after you have a good grasp on the language) our students will be charged to carry the Gospel to the unreached villages.
