The Assignment: Ethiopia

It’s hard to believe that in a world so wired and inter-connected that there are still places where people have never heard the gospel. We partnered with Joshua Campaign International to create The Assignment: a reality TV show allows the viewer to glimpse into a pioneer mission field and experience adventure, danger and the miraculous hand of God. Ten strangers with a desire to reach the lost are dropped into a foreign and exotic land, with minimal supplies and knowledge. We travel with the team and share in the victories and frustrations. We watch the team learn to rely on each other and on God. Will they reach their ‘Assignment’?

EPISODE 1

The Mission One Eleven team travels to Ethiopia and meets with Joshua Campaign workers who have planned a gospel rally in the town of Daye. The team must adjust to Ethiopia and to each other and get to a house in Daye where they will stay until after the rally. The team must get their bearings before they set out to the Ethiopian bush to search for unreached people groups.

 

EPISODE 2

The team wakes up in Daye. There are dangers everywhere. They must find transportation to nearby villages to pass out fliers and put up posters for the up coming rally. Will they get a chance to preach the gospel or will they wimp out? (Featured cast: Carrie, Jason, and Carmen)

 

EPISODE 3

The team continues to adjust and to venture out into unknown villages to preach and pass out fliers. They are invited to visit a local church. Concern over the behavior of one of the team members begins to surface. Carmen gets separated from her team. (Featured cast: Albertine, Carmen)

 

EPISODE 4

The team is tiring of ramen noodles for every evening meal and decides that they should try something new. The team ignores the danger of trying to preach in the middle of the marketplace. Michele steps up to preach, but is translated into the wrong language, and the team experiences a miracle. (Featured cast: Albertine, Michele)

 

EPISODE 5

Albertine goes on the hunt for chicken, but there aren’t any supermarkets in rural Ethiopia. And some of the team members are not to keen on the process.
Issues continue to surface with one of the team members. (Featured cast: Albertine, Linda, Michele)

 

EPISODE 6

Karl arrives in Ethiopia and takes a helicopter to search for passable routes for the Mission One Eleven team to go into the Ethiopian bush, and is almost killed. (Featured cast: Karl)

 

EPISODE 7

The rally has come. Will anyone come? Will they get rained out? Karl speaks to the team before they head into the bush. Miracles happen at the rally and the team is overwhelmed at the turnout. (Featured cast: Karl, Eiseley, Michele, Albertine)

 

EPISODE 8

Its time to head into the bush and find unreached people groups. Nick hires a bus to take them but the driver abandons the team on the road, far from their destination. The team is stuck in the middle of nowhere with their entire luggage and supplies and must find other means of transportation.

 

EPISODE 9

The team travels from Tibaru to Kalina and back, still in search of the final destination: Dida Guda.
It’s starting to look like they may not reach their destination at all.

 

EPISODE 10

EPISODE 10
The team goes to Kalina and has to cross the same river more than 4 times, as it snakes across their path. Finally they reach a distant village and share the gospel – but not without its toll on the team.

 

EPISODE 11

EPISODE 11
