The internship accepts a limited number of applicants. It is designed to develop leadership skills. The interns will be in charge of other volunteers and will assist with all of the summer outreaches including reaching out to the homeless prostitutes, drug addicts, and refugee families. Interns will also help teach children at Kidz Club. They will have opportunities to share at outreaches at services. They will have a reading assignment and be responsible to prepare devotions for the summer leadership team from time to time. Personal time with Pastor Eric and Michelle as well as being a part of the Buffalo Dream Center family will make an impact on every person who decides to enroll in the Inner city Boot Camp.

Honduras is a small, often forgotten, third world country located in the mountains of Central America. Many Hondurans live off of less than $2.00 per day. During this week-long trip, we will stay at a mission house in Tegucigalpa. Each day we will venture out on various outreaches including ministry in schools, villages, churches, hostels for the elderly, and hospitals. The team will also have the opportunity to build a house for a homeless family. This trip gives you the chance of a lifetime - to be the hands and feet of Jesus.
Honduras Week #2
August 23 - 30, 2017
Airfare ($750.00-$900) + $550 for living expenses (this does not include a $40 exit fee, offering for missionaries, or spending money)
Passport needed | You must be over 12 years of age and those under 16 must be accompanied by a parent (no exceptions).
This week has limited space and is only for those who can physically handle it. We will be spending 3-4 days in the mountains ministering to an unreached group of Indians. We will be driving approximately 15-20 hours in four wheel drive vehicles through very rugged terrain. We will be sleeping on the cement floor of a school 8,000 feet above sea level. There will be no electricity some of the days and no running water. There will also be no heat for the cold nights. Bathroom facilities are scarce. Food will be limited to what we can bring. It is important that whoever is considering this week has no serious health issues, no breathing problems such as asthma, and understands the conditions they will be living in for three days. We will have no access to any kind of medical help during the three days we are in the mountains. The roads are really rough so if someone has serious travel sickness issues they should not even consider coming. The other days we are not in the mountains, we will be staying at the mission house in Tegucigalpa. We will being doing a variety of outreaches on those days such as village outreaches, school outreaches, and ministry in the garbage dumps.
September 26 - October 4, 2017
Passport needed | Children under 14 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult.
This trip makes it possible for you to be the hands and feet of Jesus as you as you minister to prostitutes, men with addictions, children, and the Body of Christ. The Buffalo Dream Center will work together with House of Refuge Street Ministries. You will be amazed at the leadership of local missionaries, Steven and Karla Stoffelsen. Their mission statement is "Loving the Unloved, Reaching the Unreached". They have given their lives for the people forgotten by others. The week in Guatemala will change your life forever.

In January 2018 The Buffalo Dream Center will be taking a trip to Chiang Mai, Thailand. We will be working with Impacting Asia Ministries, founded by Pastors Marvin and Anna Enos. They have been full-time missionaries in Chang Mai, Thailand for approximately 25 years. They founded World Impact Bible School, Chiang Mai. The Bible School is a three year program, equipping Thai students to reach their nation and surrounding nations with the Gospel through church planting and evangelism. On this trip we will be ministering to the Bible School students, doing evangelistic outreaches, ministering in churches, and traveling to remote areas where Bible school graduates are working to assist them in evangelism and church planting initiatives.
