Use your teaching diploma to support church planting in an unreached area. You’ll be working with a team of German-speaking families, overseeing the education of their elementary and middle-school-aged children. In your free time you’ll have the opportunity to learn a new language, make friends with locals and see the birth of the church in this remote region.
You’ll be able to communicate fluently in German, handle kids in various grades, and have a sense of adventure!
Teaching qualifications at the elementary or secondary level are a plus, but not strictly required.
As soon as possible
After years of living among a remote unreached people group, OMers see God draw the first local believers to Himself.
“If I am completely honest, I think I spent our first two years in Central Asia longing to go home to our home country (or even to the USA where we had lived for a short while),” admits Beth. “I would pray: Your will God but deep down I was hoping that His will was that we wouldn’t be here long.”
“We were strangers, and they called us over to bless us. They didn’t have to give us anything—let alone everything—but they did it with smiles on their faces. They didn’t know us; they didn’t expect anything in return; they just gave,” remembers Nicole.
God uses OMers to show His love to local believers, who then spread that love to their own communities.
“Christmas is about Jesus and celebrating His birth, and I’m realising each year that it doesn’t really matter if we’re eating roast chicken or horse meat or whether we’re with special family or up on stage singing. It’s a joy to celebrate the Light coming into the world,” shares Beth.
Workers in Central Asia walk alongside local believers and share small bits of truth with those they live among.
