Madagascar (MNN) — Calling all surfers!

If you enjoy the rush of catching a breaking wave or bobbing on your surfboard admiring the beauty of the ocean, here’s an opportunity to use your talents for Christ.

Africa Inland Mission (AIM) is looking for people with a surfboard and a heart for God to go on a two year missions trip to Madagascar.

Team members will spend two years surfing on the waves of Madagascar as a way to connect with and disciple young people. It’s a great way to open doors for the Gospel.

The youth outreach and discipleship team will be gone from June 2014-December 2016. They’ll be located along the south-west shore of Madagascar—a “surfing paradise”.

While Madagascar may have building waves, it also has a desperate need for the Gospel. 52% of the population follows indigenous beliefs and another 7% is Muslim. It’s also one of the poorest countries with 92% of the people living on less than $2 a day.

That’s why AIM has a heart to reach the people of Madagascar with the Good News of Jesus Christ. Their vision is to see the Church expand and go deeper in understanding what it means to follow God.

You can still go on this trip even if you can’t surf. AIM is also looking for fisherman, farming and development workers, sailors, woodworkers, swimming instructors and song writers.
