Congratulations!  The review team has looked at your application and we are stoked to let you know that you have been accepted to be on this year's Stranded team. We officially have a space reserved with your name on it! However, this reservation can only be held for two weeks. In order to secure your reservation please fill out the four part form below and send in your nonrefundable deposit of $100. The remaining costs of $375 for the program will be due by May 1st, 2019. 

We pray that this event will not only awaken and equip you to engage dark places for Christ, but that it will also be a major life-defining experience. Some that have dared to take Stranded on before you, are now bringing the hope of Christ to some very dark and dangerous corners of the world. Perhaps, God will awaken a call in your heart to join them.

If you no longer want to participate in STRANDED then please send a note to unusualsoldiers@gmail.com to let us know so we can reserve a space for a different participant.
