Unscripted is unique because it does not have a pre-planned ministry schedule or local hosts in each country. Instead, you and your team will seek God’s direction for the people that you come in contact with day-in and day-out. On Unscripted, the mantra is “life is ministry, ministry is life.”

You will start your journey on Unscripted at the eastern tip of Asia.

This route will allow you to discover how God is working throughout the heartlands of Southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent. From there, your squad will journey to Eastern Europe and then ultimately to Spain where you will hike a portion of the Camino de Santiago. This will be an opportunity to engage with other “pilgrims” making the journey, as well as provide time for personal reflection.

Finally, Unscripted will set off across the Atlantic to South America, ending the journey in the mountains of Patagonia.

Countries

Malaysia

Malaysia

Malaysia is a melting pot of Indians, Chinese, Malays, and indigenous communities. A Buddhist temple can be located next to an Islamic mosque that could be neighboring a Christian church. Building relationships with members of these diverse communities while discovering a lifestyle of following Jesus will become the norm for your squad. Read More
Thailand

Thailand

This famously friendly nation is nicknamed the “Land of Smiles”, yet Thailand’s glimmering cities and sandy beaches are marred by sex trafficking and sex tourism. Whether God leads you to prayer-walk through the red-light district, engage with tourists, or play with kids living on the street, you will have the opportunity to reveal the Kingdom to a deeply unreached country.

Myanmar

Myanmar

Once closed off from the rest of the outside world and under severe military dictatorship, the doors to this enigmatic country have been thrown wide open.

Discover a small but growing local church and join in their endeavor to evangelize and disciple the deeply Buddhist, Burmese majority. Read More
India

India

Drink in the vibrancy of the colors, spices, and sounds of India, and join the powerful church planting movement across the country. India is quickly becoming the most populous country in the world, yet so few people here personally know the hope of Jesus. Step into another world as you reveal the love of God to these beautiful people. Read More
Nepal

Nepal

Many around the world flock to Nepal seeking adventure and enlightenment, yet few have discovered the truth of the Gospel.

Uruguay

Uruguay

A small but up-and-coming nation sandwiched between Brazil and Argentina, Uruguay shares the European roots and culture of its neighbors. While Christianity has seen explosive growth here in the past decades, you can help deepen the knowledge of the Gospel in a country where the indigenous religions still have a stronghold. Read More
Chile

Chile

Chile, the home of Patagonia and known as the “land of fire and ice”, is also home to a growing missionary mobilization movement. Here at the southern tip of the world, Latin American believers are being sent out to the unreached nations of Asia and Africa.
