Where Will You Serve? Video

Have you ever thought about missionary service or working in a foreign country? We need missionaries and workers in the LCMS Eurasia Region! Here is a great video from Rick Steenbock highlighting former and current workers in the field and telling all about the Eurasia region. Following the video, read on for some opportunities to serve this summer.

This summer, the Eurasia Region is in need of several short term teams to help lead Bible camps in Central Europe. A short-term team is a great way to get just a small taste of missionary work and life, which might help you in making a decision for longer term service as a Globally Engaged in Outreach Missionary (1-2 years of service, extendable) or a Career Missionary (5 year minimum commitment, extendable). Or, if you know you’d just love to do short-term team work, there are many opportunities! Here are just a few English Bible camp opportunities:

Szarvas, Hungary: The local Lutheran church in Szarvas, Hungary is in need of an 8-13 person team (13 is preferred). The dates for the service would be June 14-21 or June 21-28, 2015. Our GEO Missionary on the ground in Hungary writes:

This team will partner with Hungarian Lutheran pastors to host a camp that combines English and Bible teaching in a way that is fun and interactive! Some who attend will be strong Christians, some will be struggling in their faith and some will be non-Christians. The team will have the chance to build relationships with the students, share Jesus with them and connect them to a local church where they can hear the Good News of Jesus regularly.

Pápa, Hungary: The local Lutheran elementary school in Pápa, Hungary is in need of three adult volunteers for a camp to take place July 6-12, 2015.

The Hungarian Evangelical Lutheran Church is requesting a mission team to assist with camp at Gyurátz Ferenc Lutheran Elementary School in Pápa, Hungary.  The team of three people will assist with organizing the camp and working alongside the teachers and the principle of the school.  Some who attend will be strong Christians, some will be struggling in their faith and some will be non-Christians. The team will have the chance to share Jesus with them and connect them to a local church where they can hear the Good News of Jesus regularly.

Kõvágóörs-Révfülöp-Kapolcs, Hungary: This local group is looking for 4-8 team members to assist with their English Bible camp. They are open to dates in July or August.

The team will have the chance to build relationships with the students, share Jesus with them and connect them to a local church where they can hear the Good News of Jesus regularly.

Many of the local congregations help to provide housing and food, keeping costs lower for the team. There’s still time to sign up for a team this summer whether you are an individual who wishes to be placed with a team, or a congregation looking to send a team.
