Homeschooling Helper Needed in South Asia

Want to support a family in a mountainous region of South Asia through helping homeschool their kids? 

A family in South Asia is looking for someone to spend a few hours a day, 5 days a week, with their 3 children (ages 6, 7, and 10) helping them through their homeschool curriculum. This will free the parents for more effective language learning and local ministry, and will help the entire team minister more effectively in their area. The homeschool helper would be considered a full-fledged member of the ministry team, participating in worship times and accountability. Other ministry opportunities will arise and could be pursued in addition to helping with the children.

The family are open to a male or female. Accommodation is available with an existing team member (or separately) if the candidate is female. If the candidate is male, the team will assist him in finding accommodation.  The homeschool helper is needed for any length of time between now and Autumn of 2020. No teaching experience is strictly necessary.

The team is currently made up of 3 young families and a single woman.

If you can see yourself giving a year or so to this type of ministry, we’d love to hear from you!  Get in touch with our mission mentors today!

Summer Trip: Foodie Team

Duration
Short Term
Religion
Buddhist | Hindu | Muslim | Other

Dates: 1 June – 26 July
Cost: £1,900 + Flights

This city is a blend of unreached peoples, languages, and beliefs impacting all parts of life.

In a single neighborhood you will often hear bells from the Hindu temple, smell incense from Buddhist and Taoist worshippers, and hear the Muslim call to prayer.

This location is a beautiful, equatorial tropical island.

The area is in the suburbs, with both a large outdoor market and a large superstore within 10 minutes. You will be a 45-minute flight from the capital. There’s an international airport on the island, along with several malls and other modern conveniences.

Yet, below the surface are many complexities; the world’s three largest non-Christian religions all live on top of each other and coexist in everyday life.

There is a wide array of social classes as well, ranging from:

-migrant workers from nearby countries

-local Muslims who speak little to no English

-Hindus who speak mostly the local language and also English

-very wealthy East Asian Tibetans and Buddhist business people/property owners.

There is a lot of seafood here, the climate is hot and humid year-round (33 degrees Celsius every day), and rain is often on the forecast.

Our island is considered a top-ten foodie destination in the world!

Mission Trip Activities (subject to change)

  • Prayerwalking. This is a regular part of our weekly routine. You will prayer walk different parts of the city at least two or three times a week.
  • Going out 2×2. You will learn the way that Jesus sent out His disciples in Luke 9, 10, and Matthew 10 and then go out 2×2 to practice these things several times a week.
  • Disciple making training. We will walk through the biblical principles of disciple making together as a team and with other expats and put them into practice together.

If you’re interested in engaging unreached people, but don’t know where to start, then this trip is the perfect place for you to get your feet wet.

Within our city, you can experience the haunting sounds of the Islamic call to prayer, the smell of incense from the Buddhist Temple,  and walk up 300 steps into a Hindu cave.

Here you can mingle with Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, Animists, Sikhs, and Christians.  Not only is it religiously diverse, but is an ethnic melting pot as well.

In our business alone, we have had employees from Sudan, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Malaysia, Afghanistan, and Somalia.  At the international school and church, there are students from Syria, Myanmar, Iran, Korea, and many others! Due to the diverse nature of the people, the teams in the country have also taken many different avenues of ministry. This includes: teaching, studying, BAM, sports/fitness classes, board games, and outreach to refugees/trafficked people.

The only main requirements in coming is  that you are flexible and willing to eat – often!  Eating is one of the main ways to meet people and begin to share life together.  Can’t choose where to go in the world or what language/religion/people to focus on?  Don’t!  Come and meet them all.

Dates: 1 June – 10 August
Cost: £1,850 + Flights

Imagine you have grown up Muslim and heard that Jesus was a prophet, but wanted to learn more about what he taught. You lived in a small city with no more than 400 Christians, but they never spoke anything to you about him. How are you to know the truth about the Messiah without any witness?

We thank God that He pursues us and reveals Himself despite the blindness. Jesus is showing Himself in the form of visions and dreams. Many of these dreams and visions often raise more questions and require further clarification.

For those desiring to ask these questions, there are many societal pressures that prevent them seeking these answers. Therefore, relationships of trust and respect are essential to sharing truth. It is a good thing that Arabs are so hospitable and love building friendships with foreigners.

Joining our team for the summer, you have the opportunity to invest deeply in the lives of local children, winning over their hearts and their families. Through daily interactions you have the opportunity to teach love, grace, forgiveness, and respect, as well as answer questions about what we believe. Come and let the light of Christ shine in a city that needs witnesses.

Field Activities

  • Language and culture study
  • Sightseeing at Historic and Biblical landmarks
  • Relational evangelism
  • Home visits
  • Working a Children’s Camp

What does a Ghana mission trip look like?

Ghana is a peaceful country. It is an oasis of peace and prosperity in the midst of chaos in other parts of Africa. Yet the enemy attempts daily to overturn this.

We are being faithful in sharing the gospel. We do this by house-to-house evangelism and follow-up using discipleship Bible tools, children’s ministry, teaching (English, math, science and computer classes), soccer ministry, and village church activities to strengthen small (5-10) ministry groups and churches.

Cost: £2,100 + Flights

What does a southeast asia mission trip look like?

This trip will give you a wide variety of experiences. You’ll live in a creative access country and see how teams are using both a non-profit organization and also a business to gain access to four unreached people groups.

During the first part of your journey, you’ll be able to experience language learning and working with a non-profit organization focused on water projects and helping people with disabilities.

The second part and the bulk of your journey will take you to a beautiful remote island where farming and mining are the largest industries. Many people here drive cars, but horse-drawn carriages are still a viable and frequently used mode of transportation. Most homes have televisions, but our roads are often congested by water buffalo, horses, goats, or cows. Just about everyone has a cell phone and a Facebook account, but the electricity routinely goes off throughout the day. The religious ceremonies here usually include both an Islamic leader and a witch-doctor. This is an island of contrasts!

On this part of the trip, you’ll have the opportunity to live with the locals, experience what their lives are like, and enjoy a variety of adventure activities like: surfing, spearfishing, rock climbing, and caving. You’ll also learn the long-term approach we are using to share the good news and have opportunities to use what you learn every day.

Are you ready for an adventure? Visit shemahtours.com for more details.

South East Asia Trip Activities (subject to change)

  • Learn some conversational language and be using it right away
  • Experience front-line ministry in an Islamic and Hindu environment
  • Join a non-profit organization who serves the community through water projects and aid for those with disabilities
  • Participate in an adventure tour which will get you into villages and have you surfing, climbing, trekking, and caving
  • Learn the long-term strategies for sharing and implement what you learn every day
  • Establish relationships with the people and pray for them

Religion
Muslim

Dates: 1 June – 10 August
Cost: £2,300 + Flights

Islam holds deep roots among this proud people.

There are nearly 15 million people in east Africa, yet not a single mature church. But we trust God is moving and preparing for a great harvest. Having experienced war for over 20 years, these people are desperate for peace. Christ is the Prince of Peace who brings light and life into dark places. Yet how will they ever know unless someone goes and shares this great news?

Your focus will be teaching intermediate/advanced English to those who are in the process of moving to America or another western country.

From relationships formed within the school and in the neighborhood, you will have many opportunities to share about your own life and faith. This may be over a cup of tea, a game of chess, a meal of camel meat and pasta, a pick-up game of soccer, getting henna or simply relaxing together in the living room. Previous Edgers have been amazed to find that they were the first ever to share the love of Christ with a local friend.

We are praying that you may help us find people whom the Spirit is already working in towards faith. The long-term team can then follow up and continue your work long after you leave.

While the majority of your stay will be in an urban environment, you may also take side trips into the rural areas to visit other work being done. Our goal is to open your eyes to the many opportunities and possibilities for long-term work in the area.

You will also spend time learning some language and more about the culture.

Mission Trip Activities (subject to change)

  • Language and cultural study
  • Prayer-walking
  • Teaching English
  • Intentional relationship building in any way possible
