Volunteer Opportunities

By Brother Phil Snobelen

SONY DSCSpanish Truth Corps members (of all ages) are needed to assist fieldworkers and ecclesias. The ability to speak Spanish is certainly an asset. There is an Immediate opportunity that exists in Panama, Bolivia and Ecuador.

Bible School Support – Speakers are needed on an annual basis in many countries. Proficiency in Spanish again is an asset, however depending on the circumstances, translation can be arranged for English-only speaking brethren. Time commitments from long-weekends up to several weeks are possible. Panama is a prime location for English speaking brothers, sisters and young people to be fully involved in ecclesial and Bible School activities, since many local members speak both Spanish and English, and translation is routine!

Full-time Missionaries are urgently required in several Latin America countries like Panama and Ecuador. Currently there is only one full-time missionary couple in all of Latin America. The time required for this type of work is generally longer, mainly due to intensive language training and cultural adjustments. In many cases, married couples have been the norm, although single brothers and sisters can be useful, subject to conditions like country placement (they must be located where there is an established ecclesia and/or a missionary presence).

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAEnglish Truth Corps is a program that now operates in both North America and the Caribbean, and brothers and sisters of all ages are considered. In addition to the usual July/August Truth Corps this program is open to members who are available during any month of the year – thus applications are accepted at any time! Immediate opportunities are available in Jamaica, Trinidad and Guyana.

Bible School and Youth Camp Support – On an annual basis speaking brethren – and brothers, sisters and young people of all ages – are needed to support the Caribbean ecclesias. There are fraternal gatherings scheduled throughout the year in many countries.  The opportunities to volunteer and be fully involved are endless! Again, Jamaica, Trinidad & Tobago and Guyana are some of the countries that need our immediate support. One event in particular is the Triennial Youth Camp in Guyana in July of 2015 – young people from across the Caribbean attend these camps, and adult and youth attendance/support from North America is appreciated.

New Years Day lunchFull-time Missionaries are urgently needed in several countries — Jamaica and Guyana are prime examples. A minimum of a one year time-frame is preferred, however multi-year commitments would yield a great long-term benefit in each country. The duties involve weekly pastoral support of existing ecclesias, including the youth programs, and there is a great deal of preaching potential in both countries.
