A team of workers from different organisations share a vision to reach a large ethnic group who are immigrants in this part of the world. We are committed to coming alongside those God is calling to engage with these people; to help those called learn to love them, to understand their culture and to speak their language well. We are cooking up a course with three main ingredients: Guided language learning; Cultural appreciation; and Ministry mentoring. The main emphasis of the semester is face-time with members of the people group, so right from day one you will be out and about among them. Typical days will include about 3 hours of classroom time and about the same time out in the community. The total cost for 4 months, including airfare, living costs and class fees, will be $7,400 for men and $ 8,300 for women. Those we invite to join the programme will need to deposit $1,800 by Dec 1st. 2017 to secure a place. There may also be scholarships available for needy students. Are you intrigued? The first step would be to contact an Interserve office for further details and for our programme representative's email address. Then you can write to us, telling us about yourself and your sense of calling to this forgotten people group. We will follow up to get to know you better, then assess whether this course may be a good fit for you. If so, we will invite you to join us Jan 23rd ? May 19th, 2017.
