Passage to India

If you are a compelling and culturally aware teacher and speaker (and especially you’re able to go with one or two others in a team) and you can get to Hyderabad city, you will be collected by a very enthusiast church leader who would love you to encourage the troops, offer training and meet with people in orphanages and clinics assisting Aids patients and others on the margins.

This ministry is with a small network of churches in India’s state of Andhra Pradesh. You won’t need to be fluent in Telegu (although that would help!) as our man in AP is fluent in both Telegu and English.

The period in the year and length of time you would need to be there is flexible.

Do contact me for further details. The eagerness for this to happen is very great from those in Andhra.

Good News Vietnam

In Vietnam there is an urgent need at the moment for theological teachers and trainers and there is a loud cry being voiced to ‘Come over and help us’.

The seminary there is training students (all part time) who are engaged in ministry all over the country. It draws students together for 3-4 days a month.

International teachers across a wide range of subjects are desired to supplement local teachers.

Probably an ideal visit would look like this:
* Teach a module to the regular students for 16 hours over 3-4 days
* Conduct a day of seminars as part of the existing continuing education program for church leaders.
* Visit to teach leaders and churches in a region away from the main centres (3-4 days or however long the teacher has to spare).

The people are warm, the students are receptive, the churches are inspiring, the food is delicious and the needs are great.

I would love to receive enquiries about this opportunity for further details and completed expressions of interest.
