“How do you know you’re not in the jungle?” asks Elise Long. “As you pull on your shoes for a morning run, you remember you don’t have to check them for scorpions or centipedes hiding inside.”

Elise left her home in the jungle to attend the NTM Youth Conference in the UK this week. Elise writes that 260 young people arrived by bus, plane and car for a weekend of exposure to tribal missions.
