Calling all teachers! Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity in the 10/40 Window, in a country desperate for the truth & hope of Jesus! Come alongside our Partners at Kingdom Garden Pre-school in Chengdu, China led by Martyn & Lynda Mayfield. The Mayfields use education as a way to reach out to their staff, teachers, and the families they serve with the love & hope of Jesus. Chengdu is a city of over 15 million in central China. The team will also have an opportunity to visit schools in beautiful, rural mountain villages outside of Chengdu. We will encourage teachers working in difficult conditions among the materially poor. This is a place of great spiritual need, but full of beautiful, joyful people! We have the privilege of coming alongside these schools to offer love & encouragement to the teachers, many of whom are not believers as well as the precious children in their care.
You do not have to be a teacher to apply for this trip, but applications from those in education will be given priority. The mountain school portion of the trip will be physically strenuous – team members should be able to walk long distances and be prepared for camp-like sleeping conditions.
For more information about this trip please email the team leader, Melissa Phillips, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: Applying for a GO Team does not confirm your spot on the team. Once applications have been reviewed, you will be notified of your acceptance or status on a waiting list. If accepted, you will be asked to submit a $100 deposit which will confirm your position on the team.

About Martyn & Lynda Mayfield
We are Martyn and Lynda Mayfield and have served in China for 20 years. We founded Kingdom Garden, a preschool serving Chinese families in Chengdu China. Chinese people in this city of 15 million people desperately need Jesus. We share Christ’s love with the teachers we hire and the children and families we serve. Within this learning community of trust, we seek to make disciples who make disciples and facilitate churches that birth churches. We also have the privilege to support several school initiatives in remote mountain villages. Changing Lives with Love is why we get up in the morning.
That the relationship we develop with teachers and families will be full of love and prove fruitful in the kingdom
For continued opportunities to serve rural schools and meet their educational, physical, and spiritual needs
That God will provide workers who can share the burdens of the educational and discipleship initiatives
That the Spirit will move and we will see the simple church reproduce to the 4th generation … great, great, grandchildren!
