Be Salt and Light

Season: Summer 2024 (not published)

Date: May 20 - July 26, 2024

Description: Spainis a top tourist destination, renowned for its beautiful scenery, multiple fiestas, and friendly people, yet classified as "unreached" by missions researchers. You will have the opportunity to experience this firsthand while having the chance to touch people with the gospel. You will serve at the Centre which also hosts the Colegio Alfa y Omega, an Evangelical school, which is not, by law, allowed to be overtly Evangelical. That's why the testimony of the team in Alfa y Omega is so important. Your primary responsibility will be to learn to serve. This will include cleaning, gardening, helping to teach children, or looking after children. Most native English speakers have multiple opportunities to work with children. If you don’t speak Spanish, you will learn through immersion. You will be able to show the love of Jesus to kids and their parents from all over the world, since the school has an international clientele. In addition, you will experience living in close Christian community with other young people, worshipping with the local congregation while making new life-long friends. The Centro Alfa y Omega is on the Mediterranean coast, with a mountainous backdrop that allows for great leisure time activities.
