During the outreach, they will distribute tracks, and sing Christmas carols. Participants will help lead worship and share their testimonies at the church services. Participants will also help clean in the church and local area.

Participants are responsible for arranging their travel to and from Athens International Airport. The airport code is “ATH.” Participants should arrive before 18:00 on the scheduled arrival day and will be picked up and dropped off at the airport by an OM team member. Groups should arrive and depart together.
