Do you love to tell God's story? What he is doing right here and now? Do you love to help resouce his work through proposal writing and public relations? Then we need you on our team. The role is a merge of Field Communication's officer and NGO proposal writer and Public Relations manager. We see God at work in our community development and in the lives of our friends and communities but we need someone to help us to tell our stories better.
We are looking for a person with native or near native level English skills, to coordinate the communications and stories, photos and video media clips send to our OM and NGO partners and Donors. We also want to increase our capacity in proposal writing and continue gaining access to outside funding. So professional level research on community development topics and familiarity with "development jargon" is a plus but can also be learned. Other tasks include the English language annual report of our NGO, proofreading and editing internal project reports and proposals, a full PRD is available.
We are working and living in a moderate Muslim country, with wonderful hospitality and friendly people who love to get to know you and host you. You be based in a team and receive 3 months orientation and training in language and culture and be part of an ongoing training programme for the first 2 years. We encourage all our team members to engage with their local colleagues and neighbours to see Vibrant communities of Jesus followers come into existence in this unreached nation.
As soon as possible
“I love hearing from the local people here about the workers that have gone before us who have now returned to their passport countries,” shares Beth. “I hear stories like: ‘She taught me to quilt’ or ‘She gave me this recipe’ or ‘She taught me how to set a table for foreigners.’ And, of course, the best stories begin: ‘She taught me about Jesus.’ These are the things those who have gone before us have left behind.”
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.
