Goal: The goal of Bible Delivery and Smuggling trips is simple: to take Bibles into closed countries.These trips are usually fast-paced. Travelers will spend a lot of time in transit; on trains, buses, motorcycles, or by vehicle.
Average Schedule: Each trip begins at your closest airport. VBB will provide you with enough Bibles to fill both your checked bags. You will meet up with your team before going overseas. Upon arrival, you will deliver your Bibles to a local contact. For a more specific trip schedule, contact your trip coordinator. NOTE: Most trips run around a week or longer. Some trips to Central America can be an extended weekend to minimize costs and time off required from work. Contact our office for more information!

Goal: The goal of these trips is to minister to women and children who are at high risk of being trafficked, are currently enslaved in trafficking or have been rescued from trafficking or red-light districts. The team’s goal is to share the hope and redemption Jesus offers to these women. Due to the spiritual darkness teams encounter, it is essential to consider this trip with an abundance of prayer. This trip is great for both men and women. However, when the team gets the opportunity to interact with women in the red-light districts, the men will want to show extreme discretion in how they interact.
Average Schedule: Each trip begins at your closest airport. VBB will provide you with enough materials to fill a checked bag as well as coordinate with you to fill the second bag with supplies for the women in India. You will meet up with your team lead before flying into the destination country. These trips often fly directly into Southeast Asia with the materials. Once the team arrives in India, they will begin ministering to women and sharing the love of Christ through the ministry in the red-light district. We enjoy taking nurses and hair dressers on this team as well, to care for the women and train those working in the salon in the red-light.
Goal: The goal for trips to Romania is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the girls living in the VBB halfway house. This is an opportunity to love, teach and encourage young women to be daughters of the King. This is also an opportunity to teach basic life skills and principles.
Average Schedule: When traveling to Romania, VBB will coordinate with you to fill your bags with helpful items for our contacts on the ground. You will meet up with your team lead before flying into the destination country. While there, you will be working with girls who have been brought into a safe house who were at high risk of being trafficked. As you work with the girls, you will be teaching them practical skills, participating in devotionals, cooking meals and serving them. You will also have opportunities to teach Scripture, disciple, and worship together. The team will further spend time doing street ministry with the gypsies in Romania and visit our orphanage to share Christ's love with the children.

Overview: There are only a few nations in the Middle East where evangelism and religion are protected. Lebanon is one of those nations. For several years, VBB has been working to bring the Gospel to this tiny 'oasis' nation in the Middle East surrounded by conflict and war. If you’re interested in working with Christian brothers and sisters in the Middle East to help spread the Gospel to Muslim communities, this may be the trip for you!

Children's Homes (SE Asia)
Goal: The goal of this trip is to reach out to what Jesus would call “the least of these.” Orphans all over the world are often seen as a lower level of human, and have been given little hope of success in society. But as we know it, they have untold and unending value to our Father in Heaven. Because of this, we have made it a priority to reach out to these children by emotionally caring and serving them with our time and gifts. In demonstrating this love, we give orphans the opportunity to see that their true father is Christ and He sees their incredible value.
Schedule: Each team may experience a slightly different schedule. Throughout the year, teams will help with special projects, teach, or bring gifts for Christmas. Please contact our trip coordinator for further information about this trip.
Countries: Romania, Southeast Asia (Please contact for details).
Pastor Support & Bible Delivery Trips
Goal: The goal of this trip is to bring much needed supplies to pastors. VBB helps sponsor almost 200 pastors in various countries around the world. Pastors and churches face oppression and restriction regularly. The supplies VBB delivers helps encourage the pastors and enhance the ministry of their church.
Average Schedule: Each trip begins at your closest airport. VBB will coordinate with you to fill your checked bags with Bibles, humanitarian aid or other supplies for our contacts. You will meet with your team lead before flying into the destination country. Once in the country, your team will have the opportunity to travel to multiple congregations and fellowship with local believers. Once supplies are delivered, your team will also assemble a list of future supplies needed as outside communication with these countries is very difficult.
Countries: Central American Restricted Country, Southeast Asia Restricted Country, Others. (Request for Information)
Medical Missions Trips
Goal: One of the largest needs worldwide is that of medical assistance. For this trip, our goal is to bring Christ and aid to those who are sick and physically broken. Jesus gave this example in His ministry while on Earth. We want to continue it with men and women who have experience in the medical field and are willing to reach those in need of assistance. During this trip, the team will bring medical supplies in their suitcases and administer aid to those in different circumstances. Because medical skills are more of a specialty skill, we encourage all Christians with a medical background to consider applying. There are millions waiting for this type of aid. May Christians be the ones to answer the call!
