Skill/gifting: We are looking for women and men who are happy to teach basic health lesson in our rural communities that are ripe with animistic and folk Islamic health believes as well as just a general lack of understanding of how our body and health issues work.
Come join a church planting team committed to holistic development working among the unreached on the roof of the world in Central Asia.
We teach on pregnancy and child health, infectious diseases like hepatitis, HIV and sexual transmitted diseases, diabetes, blood pressure and other topics depending on what the local community feel is their biggest need.
We are looking for people who enjoy facilitating participatory lessons with rural communities, teach basic health and hygiene and use these opportunities to build lasting deep relationships with the village community. We also train village nurses as we pass on these lessons so they can support their communities better in the future.
As soon as possible
Después de años de vivir entre un grupo apartado de personas no alcanzadas, los obreros de OM ven a Dios atraer a los primeros creyentes locales a sí mismos.
“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.
“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.
God uses OMers to show His love to local believers, who then spread that love to their own communities.
Workers in Central Asia walk alongside local believers and share small bits of truth with those they live among.
