In the last two years a reprieve from the harsh northern winters has been had by teams helping to put portions of a roof on the main building of Villa Peniel Camp near Villa de Layva.  With a good team we should be able to complete the roofing work in this coming year.  Normally we are in Colombia the last week of January and the first week of February.  This is a good place to interact with the local believers as you work together and be introduced to a culture outside the United States.  Do you have time in the winter to go?

UPDATE: Now that we have the authorization our need of focus has changed to RESOURCE /MATERIAL mobilization. We need to get the school going by early next year. The plan is to have two class rooms put up two dorms and the administration block first phase and then later on move to the next stage.

We are praying for an English Christian school to be used both as a tool and contact point for evangelism in this part of the country. We want to see the future destiny and leadership of this country transformed by the youths of today who are but leaders of tomorrow. We believe that, if we want to affect the future of a nation then we need to begin to impact and influence the youths of today and we believe one of the keys to that is quality education. Especially if offered by God fearing men and women.

The plan is to join hands with other ministries like mission bodies or Bible schools especially those who are offering teaching as a trade to those being trained as missionaries. Or individual believers who are teachers by profession who want to serve God using their profession as missionaries.  

We are overjoyed to announce to you all that, we have finally gotten land for the school in very conducive area. We are now working on the legalisation of it and on the documentation of the school. We are still praying for someone to do design and planning for the school.

Come as a tourist on a short-term trip & explore different opportunities.  Come as a student; learn the language & culture while being immersed in campus outreach.  Come as a teacher for 1-2 years (i.e. teaching English) & gain practical work experience while being involved in ministry. This is a closed country… but while there are many opportunities, the laborers are few.

Campus Outreach: come learn the language & reach out to several of the million students in over a hundred universities.

Dorm Parents / Education / Maintenance

Some of our full time staff are leaving, so we need other teachers and dormitory staff to come join us.

Amano needs more help on the building site and with maintenance. A single man, someone retired or even a couple (he could help with the building site & she could help in the dorm or school) would be an answer to prayer.

Here at Amano there is always a need for short-term help in the classrooms, in the dormitories, with maintenance and with building projects. We welcome young people as well as older folk who have taken early retirement; plus all ages in between.

Education

Sakeji Mission School – needs:

  • Grade 1 Teacher – beginning January 2016. The current teacher has indicated she will not be at Sakeji beyond this calendar year. An Early Childhood Educator Certificate would be acceptable, but preferably someone with a degree and teaching experience in primary education.
  • Grades 2/3 and 4/5 teachers – beginning immediately: someone with a teaching degree and preferably teaching experience in primary/elementary education.  This is currently being covered by the headmaster and girls' dorm parent.

Sakeji Mission School – a rural, private boarding school established in 1925, providing quality education to children of missionaries and Zambians from various backgrounds. Our goal is to share God's Word, see young people enter into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord, and equip them to be leaders in their future families, communities, and nations. Student enrolment is growing slowly, with almost 90 students from Grades 1 through 9. Curriculum is sourced and adapted from the UK, America and Zambia. Sakeji School is relatively modern, with 24 hour power and comfortable staff dwellings.

Teachers are missionaries commended and supported by their local church. Teachers with training in special education or other specialized areas to work together with the classroom teachers are also needed.

 If interested check out their website www.sakeji.com

Please contact Mark Ronald at headmaster@sakeji.com
