Antigua and Barbuda is a twin-island country in the continent of the Americas, lying between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean.
Antigua has rolling hills and volcanic rocks. Barbuda has rainforests and lush vegetation. With its drier climate, Antigua has no rainforests but many kinds of cactuses. The country has a warm, tropical climate and is famous for its beautiful, stunning white sandy beaches and clear waters.
Antigua and Barbuda has no land borders with any other country, and based on where it is in the world, sees many hurricanes and tropical storms. Like other island nations, Antigua and Barbuda is also beginning to feel the effects of climate change, such as sea level rise, and more extreme weather patterns.
Christianity is the main religion in Antigua and Barbuda, as such many children from the islands take part in Missionary Childhood (Mission Together) gatherings. Each year a large Missionary Childhood summer camp is held on the Island of Antigua, with hundreds of children attending. Here they play and pray together, learn more about Jesus, and plan charitable actions to help children living in poverty around the world.
