The Social Workers and/or Community Health Workers will be members of the OM MTI team in Southeast Asia, working together with OM national fields in Cambodia, Myanmar and Indonesia in transformational development projects in social work and community health. Through these transformational development projects, our aim is to proclaim and demonstrate the love and justice of Jesus Christ to the least reached, so that vibrant communities of Jesus followers among the least reached may be established. Besides project implementation and management, the Social Workers and Community Health Workers will have opportunities to engage in discipleship with each other, the local staff and community.
