LST Mission Projects
Go on an LST Mission Project
Do you love the Lord and speak English? Then you are the perfect fit for an LST trip! LST is an opportunity to travel to another country and read the Gospel of Jesus with locals in a one-on-one, conversational setting. These people, whom we call “Readers”, might otherwise never step foot inside a church building. They initially come with the goal of improving their English language skills, but leave with new international friendships and the good news of the story of Jesus Christ.
FULL-SERVICE MISSION PROJECTS
LST offers two levels of service- full-service and enhancement.
In LST’s full-service, high-touch approach we’ll walk with you from start to finish. Let us help you with questions like the following:
Who will I go with?
LST will help you recruit your own team of friends or family, usually 2-4 people. Your team will train together using LST’s training series to prepare for sharing your faith, adapting to a new culture, and working well together.
When and where will I go?
LST receives inviations for teams from mission sites in over 30 countries a year. We’ll match your team with a site that is a good fit, taking into consideration the size of your team, the time of year you want to serve, and other variables that help create a great “fit!” You can go for 2–6 weeks any time of the year, and we arrange your transportation, housing, any necessary visas, and all the other logistics. Each year LST has many more invitations from mission sites than we have teams, so if you’re thinking about going, now is a great time!
How much will I raise?
LST utilizes a shared-cost model in which all the teams raise a similar base amount with small variations based on location and/or length of project. Your fundraising covers everything you need during your trip, including airfare, housing, food, materials, local transportation, training, and 24/7 support while your team is on site. A majority of LST workers fundraise for their mission project, and we have seasoned expertise to help you raise the funds for your project. Many LST team members will confess that raising funds for their project was surprisingly one of the most faith-building parts of the entire experience! International mission work isn’t cheap, but we send hundreds of Christians each year who raise their total amount, and we can help send you too! Our general fundraising amounts are as follows:
$3,650 – Adult/Family projects for 2-4 weeks
$3,900 – College student projects for 3-6 weeks
What if my whole family wants to go?
We love sending families. In fact, we feel so strongly about enabling families to serve together that we offer a deeply discounted fundraising goal for minors going with family members.
What if I’ve been before?
You’re in great company! Over half of those who go on LST mission projects in a given year are LST alum. We love that kind of loyalty…and want to reward it! Among the many things available to LST alum we offer the following:
- A per diem approach to managing on-site expenses
- A loyalty program in which you earn a discount for every regular project you successfully complete
- A recruiting incentive to encourage the recruitment of new LST Workers
- A small (but meaningful) annual promotional gift
- An invitation to join LST staff at one international and one domestic event each year where you can engage LST leaders, help promote the LST Ministry, and gain exposure to broader networks of like-minded Christians.
LST provides flexibility where you want it.
You can go with the people you choose, during a time of your choosing, and/or to a site of your choosing! Have your own mission site? Great! Let’s talk about how LST might work there. Prefer to make your own travel arrangements? No problem. LST even offers discounted fundraising amounts when you purchase your own ticket (for example, with miles).
ENHANCE YOUR MISSION PROJECT
Though we love creating mission projects from start to finish (our full-service, high-touch level of service), we realize your group may already have your own site and is ready to manage its own logistics. LST can enhance what you’re already doing! LST provides a succinct, impactful, and practical training package to prepare your group to do LST Reading Sessions wherever you go.
