How would you like to go on a 5 week adventure with Steve to Poland, Romania, South Africa and Zambia? You would be traveling by plane, train, car, boat, bus.

You would get to sleep out in tents, cross crocodile infested waters, drive on roads that are shared with trucks and cars and ox-drawn carts, get to love on people, share Jesus, and see what God is doing through dear people like you.
