Mission Opportunities

There are a wide range of opportunities to help support the short-term needs of our missionaries.  These needs range in time from a few weeks to several months. We currently have requests for help with clerical support, children’s camps, remodeling projects, repair work, teachers’ aides, etc. A complete current list is below.

Brian Kramer from Cambridge, Minnesota, serves as CMML’s Short-Term Service Coordinator. If you’d like to get in touch with Brian to inquire about helping and learn more about the short term opportunities listed please contact him directly at bjkramer@cmml.us.

Missionaries may contact Brian to have their short term requirements added to the list.

PLEASE NOTE: Unless otherwise indicated, all of the opportunities listed below are VOLUNTEER positions. Volunteers are required to raise their own financial support.

Education

UPDATED: SEE VIDEO CLIP (BELOW)

 We have a huge need for an Educator to come out and teach Burundian elementary school students at the assembly-run Discovery School in Bujumbura, Burundi for any and all trimesters of the 2013-2014 school year.  The school uses an English immersion program, but English is the fourth language for most of the Burundian staff, so having a native-English speaker would be a huge asset.  Also, most of the local staff do not have education training, so if they could rotate through the trained educator's classroom and serve as his/her assistant, they would learn SO much. Even if someone could only come out for one three-month long trimester it would be a huge blessing.

Education

December 2013 Update: The school has been open for four months now, and we have much to be thankful for. It was a smooth start to the new school year. Currently we have just over 300 students registered in the school. This is the figure we aim for each year and we are pleased that we have reached this figure so early on. We have 70 new students this year and the vast majority of them will never have heard the Gospel before. Many of our new families joining the school this year are from countries like Syria and Egypt where there is great turmoil. Most of these families are from Muslim backgrounds. Please remember them as they hear the Gospel for the first time. In God’s Grace we have been able to continue to start each day with a Gospel message in morning assembly.

We are now renting a new, recently erected, football/sports facility very close to the school. We hoped that doing this might help us to gain permission from the authorities to remain on our current site. However, we have already been told verbally that it will make no difference and ultimately we will have to relocate the school. Please remember to pray for us that we might know God’s leading in our current difficulties over space and a new location for the school.

2014 World Cup Outreach Brazil: 

Prayer update: Click here.
We would like to thank the LORD for the opportunity to invite you to pray for and consider attending the 2014 World Cup Finals in Brazil. The opportunity for the Gospel and discipleship will be great and is promising; an opportunity you will not want to miss out. There is every probability that this could be the last World Cup that the Church will see the Gospel shared and souls saved.

Please pray for and consider the following with us.

1.) Literature design, printing, and provision.
2.) Accommodations: The LORD, through Bro. Daniel Schutte’s contacts there, has already provided a Mission Compound that is able to house 10 – 20. There is still more to be sought and being made available.

3.) Local contacts to follow up locals that get saved. Some have been and also a youth leader is committed to raising up youth to help with the work; estimated at 300 – 500.
4.) Team preparation material distribution and studied.
5.) Prayer teams for daily contacting during the event, to pray through the prayer log and also available to be contacted during their hour of prayer for any immediate matters.
6.) Missionary contacts to follow up those that get saved that come from the country of their service.
7.) Visas for the outreach team members to be secured by April 30, 2014.
8.) For the heartbeat of Caleb and Joshua to be in the outreach team members: , .
9.) That each team member will be steadfast in sharing the GOSPEL and not a message that does not contain and explains the resurrection of Christ and its importance of exercising one’s faith in it to be saved. 
10.) For God’s provision for those who desire to go and be used of the LORD to share the Gospel and begin the discipleship of those who get saved. That they also will trust Him to provide for them to also contribute to the costs for the team’s time in Brazil as He puts into their heart to give. 
11.) Pray much that this time in the Gospel will be a sustained working in each team member’s heart and life when they return to their assemblies. Pray that the impact will become contagious amongst those who they fellowship with and beyond.

We here at Ireland Outreach are excited and gearing up for this year’s 2014 Summer Missions Exposure Team in Ireland, set to kick off this summer from June through the beginning of August. This year’s focus will be on our week long AWANA program, which we will be conducting in an impoverished immigrant area of Dublin, known as Eastwall. The Ireland Outreach team, in conjunction with Fairview Assembly, will be conducting this children’s outreach. Please pray with us that God will raise up the necessary workers for this week long summer camp and to work with these poor immigrant children who are in desperate need of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 

If you would like to participate in this year’s children’s outreach, please email us at charleville@eircom.net and request an application.

There are needs for other workers to come and help with practical work and many maintenance projects needing attending at Charleville. There are opportunities to be involved in many different areas of the ministry. No matter your talent, burden, or calling, there is a place for you on this year’s Summer Missions Exposure Team in Irealnd. We especially need a full time maintenance man, cook, and administrator at Charleville.

If apologetics in a post-modern world, discipleship, evangelism, and hospitality run in your blood, and if teamwork is your cup of tea, why not consider applying for this position with your spouse? If you are a couple, (children welcome), the commitment would preferably be two to four years. Some French speaking or at least a will to learn would be helpful. The college ministry is located in several cities in France.

Is someone willing to come and help by working in schools and many other activities?

 I have been in Honduras since 2000, first helping in a private evangelical school. In 2007, I believe the Lord guided me to work in the public schools. Since then I have presented the gospel in Centro Basico, 18 de Mayo, which is from first to ninth grade. This year another has opened the door, Fidelina, Nora de Melgar, Nuevo Amanecer, so three total. As you can see there is a lot of opportunities, we have to keep His work going, and reach those precious souls with the gospel of Christ.

There is accommodation for a couple, or for one or two girls. Please contact Elvia for further information.

We have beautiful beaches, people willing to listen, and a great opportunity to serve our Great Savior.

We are an open brethren assembly and we are looking for volunteers. There is no need for special knowledge or skills just the basic skills of using the internet. We need believers that know any language in order to promote two of our websites:

(1) http://www.baj.co.il

During the last years several Jews from Israel came to faith after entering this website and you can help us promote this website in Google so many Israeli Jews will find it and enter it. How to do that? Just add a link to this site on your blog or any other site where you can add links.  When there are many links referring to a site the site is promoted in Google and more people find it. If more Jews in Israel will find this site more will hear the gospel and have a chance to be saved. We will explain more how it is possible to promote this site to those who will contact us and would like to help us.

(2) http://www.brethrenmatch.com

This is a new website for singles among the brethren assemblies worldwide. We are looking for believers who know different languages and can contact assemblies around the world and letting them know about this new site. There is more to do regarding this site and we will explain it to those that will get back to us.

  • To use the school as a vehicle for evangelism
  • To be a contact point with those who are never found in churches
  • To provide quality education to the people of Mozambique
  • To influence the future leadership and destiny of this country with the gospel of Christ
  • To meet the needs of the children of missionaries and expatriates

“We urgently need some Christian volunteer teachers for both long and short term service.”

There is also a need for someone to do design for the boarding school with sports facilities in place.

Education / Evangelism / Hostel

Urgent need for manager/teacher. ** See below **

Education - Tuition Centers: Our work is running tuition (tutoring) centres in Sindh Province for poor children some of whom attend a very low standard government school and some cannot even afford that. But since the standard is so low at government schools most attain only to Grade 5 or less. Hence the need for tuition centres. 

Tuition (tutoring) centres are staffed by Pakistani teachers and short-term helpers from North America. We are constantly requested to provide more tuition centres and have had to turn many away due to lack of workers.

Evangelism: Saturdays or Sundays we hold Bible schools, and most of our pupils (and some of their parents) attend those as well.

Together with Pakistan Discipleship Ministries, an indigenous evangelical mission in Sindh, we hold tent campaigns where we have had over 1000 people attend. Many requested more info about the God who said, "Come unto me... I will give you rest."

Hostel: We were offered a very good place for a hostel for the many uncared for little girls, mostly from the "Christian" community but also Hindus. We have been given the building but have no workers.

Any short termers have to be given training before going to Pakistan and must be willing to dress in Muslim clothes and follow cultural norms... and be willing to live in very primitive conditions.  

From Saloma Smith: Presently the two tuition centres are operating and we plan to hold three conventions. Interest is high and response has been good. Three men are supported by us to do follow up work in the villages where people specifically requested more info at the conventions last year.
This whole project will close unless a long-term manager/teacher shows up in the next few months. I cannot continue since I am in my 86th year. This is a needy place where many are interested in the good news. But literacy rate is low so we have set up tuition centres.
What is needed is a manager willing to make a long-term commitment. (Short termers are always available but they need someone to coordinate their work.) Our tuition centres are in English and one can manage here with only English, though a long-term leader would want to attend the language school in the hills to learn Urdu.
We are part of a local evangelical mission which is totally indigenous and we are free to teach assembly principles and practice the breaking of bread weekly (though it is not always possible on Sundays).
Until now the work has been mostly Canadian-supported and our organization! (Saloma Smith Scholarship Fund) is registered in Ottawa as a charity so we can give out receipts and Ontario residents and most provinces are covered by the provincial health scheme.
Living conditions are rugged or worse. However, there is a good western type hospital 5 hours away plus an outpost hospital right here in Tando Allah Yar.
God is interested in these people and has kept me healthy and strong and free of sickness these 30 years. I have not seen any violence or terrorism around here. But it needs a person who knows how to trust God.

UPDATED: There is a new need for construction oversight and a nurse to provide medical training:

(From Henry Dyck): “The Zambian Health board has said that we will be getting approximately 9 more staff in the very near future (this is needed as the hospital could use more trained hospital staff). The implication is that we will need staff housing for them. That means we may need to build a few more staff accommodations. Perhaps someone who reads these letters has the ability to oversee the building of 5-9 houses all at the same time, who has a wife who is a registered nurse (enough experience to train the incoming staff as most would be just out of school and sent to this remote location), and is close enough to retirement that the kids are no longer dependant on them and yet have a lot of energy left in them. (if that's you, contact Chitokoloki Hospital Mission via their website).”

There is a need for nurses, midwives, doctors and "helpers" both long and short term.
