Have ever you dreamt of floating down the Amazon River? Now is your chance! Not only will you travel on the second longest river in the world, be amongst the largest tropical rainforest that provides 20% of the world's oxygen, take once-in-a-lifetime photos of animals and foliage, you will have an amazing opportunity to meet and change the lives of the local people that live along the Amazon River.

Join SIMS on a mission trip that will change your life. We partner with Social Action Volunteers of the Amazon (ASVAM), a non-profit organization through the Adventist Conference in Manaus, Brazil. With this group we connect with local Brazilians and villagers by providing health fairs and health education. Trip participants will also help lead Vacation Bible School, provide health fairs, lead worship in the local villages, and so much more.
