Full Term and Short Term Opportunities
Below are the latest full term and short term opportunities available for serving at. If you want more information on one of these, please contact us at: email@example.com
ROH Headquarters: Charlotte, NC area:
ROH hopes to have a summer team in downtown Charlotte, next summer, to help Nepali refugee children and families. They will be working with Brother Uttam and Evan and Jenna Sweezy through a Nepali Christian Fellowship (Church), doing mostly activities with children, helping them to keep up with their grades. Parents usually have very limited English and the children go to public schools. VBS and sports and games and crafts will also be part of this outreach that the Nepali church is having for their community. There are about 10,000 Nepali refugees in Charlotte, who have lost homes in order to escape the genocide in Bhutan. The Nepali church is growing, but they are still considered one of the world’s most unreached people groups. But God is at work and you can be a part of it.
We also have need for people to go to Turkey and Jordan, to help out in learning centers for Syrian refugee children. These communities are hoping to return to Syria when able, but they have been in refugee situations for 4 years, and so without these learning centers, this generation would risk illiteracy. We are looking for people who can help with all kinds of things: English teaching, basic computer skills, arts and crafts, sports and games, etc. They can take people and teams all year round; short term or long term.
East Asian Country:
We have a small team in an East Asian country, which is helping to establish existing small churches there. One outreach they have is vocational training through teaching English. There is an English Café where young people go each evening to practice speaking their English. This is an excellent outreach program and they can use people all year round, short or long term. Come ready to meet some wonderful children, youth, and young adults who are all looking to learn English. It is understood that a church is hosting this English Club and so sharing one’s faith in Christ is very appropriate.
Another Team in SE Asia
There is a an NGO there, which has a Primary School for underprivileged poor children. They are often looking for people who can assist with teaching, teacher-aide work, or English teachers. Contact us for more details.
• MK support in Chiang Mai serving at a youth hostel.
• MK support is also needed in other areas (near Bangkok and possibly in some of the central provinces) with home-schooled kids in CP teams. This could be a wonderful gap year, for anyone over 18, who would like to live in Thailand for a year, doing some language study, and being a huge help to the long term missionaries.
There is room for helping at a Centre for older children and young adults for skill improvement and vocational training.
Short term helpers are welcome to come and to teach local children English informally. Also a local international church has ministries that help children in crisis.
Furthermore a missional business (English Café) run by an IMM team in another city has a community children’s ministry that workers can participate in. Contact us for more details.
