This team will use common interests in sports, backpacking and recreation in order to build relationships and hold spiritual conversations with speakers of Manx Gaelic on the Isle of Man. Ideal applicants will be personable and in good physical condition.
1 June – 1 July 2019
This team will be staying in a specifically Manx-speaking area to learn about the language and culture while making friendships with Manx speakers. They will be staying in youth hostels, campgrounds, or other arrangements. Through common interests in the sports, backpacking and the outdoors, this team will build relationships and foster spiritual conversations with Manx speakers of similar interests.
This team is ideal for people with a background or interest in team sports, hiking and/or water sports who can use these interests and talents as a natural connection point with Manx speakers. This is a very independent project. Those who require a great deal of direct supervision or instruction should not consider this assignment.

Linguæ Christi conducts an exchange programme for university and secondary students primarily during their summer holidays. These aren’t your average mission trips in Europe; the aim of these projects is cultural exchange with a strong educational component, focusing on the languages, cultures, histories of indigenous minority language groups. As a specifically Christian cultural experience, participants will explore matters of faith with local believers, those open to spiritual discussions and other interested parties.
Project participants cannot seek employment or remuneration of any kind during their time with us. All participants must raise all financial support prior to their arrival.
Project costs do not include airfare to the field of service. However these costs are otherwise inclusive for all on-field costs: food, lodging, internal travels, ministry supplies, training, etc.
