Take that teaching diploma and invest in the lives of ‘missionary kids’ along the Silk Road. Whether you’re a recent graduate or come with a lifetime of experience, whatever discipline you teach, MKs aged 5-18 are waiting for you! You’ll play a vital role in the growth of the church as you release parents for ministry. We’re looking for teachers who are learners too, as you step out of your comfort zone and experience life in a unique culture.
You’ll have an elementary or secondary teaching qualification, and a heart to disciple your students. You’ll be willing to spend time learning a new language and immerse yourself in both the school and local culture. We’d prefer some teaching experience, but recent graduates are also welcome.
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.
