What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Need for teachers for English, Computers and Portuguese, handy crafts
Through English teaching WEC has helped especially many young people to develop their situations. The courses we offer give them the chance to spend their time in an effective way and some have found jobs because of their language knowledge.
Since 2003 WEC has established a children and youth centre (ESPERANCA – HOPE) in the capital Dili. This is to help children and youth to develop their lives and to model a children and youth ministry to the churches, as there is no such ministry yet by the churches. Here we offer courses for young people as well as children’s programs where they develop their skills and get Sunday school teaching.

WEC East Timor is one of the newest fields of WEC-International and as such still very small. Our vision is to work together with churches and other missions to make Jesus known all over Timor.

As Timor was under occupation for about 400 years (Portuguese 350 and Indonesia 24) there are still many difficulties the country is facing after Independence 1999. WEC has been helping people in East Timor since 1960s with material for the ministry of pastors, sponsor ship for pastors, and a clinic in the interior (15 years).

Since independence a WEC team has come to Timor in 2000 and has been providing seminars for pastors to equip them with basics for their ministry in the kingdom of God.
As the WEC team is very small (4 WECCERs in this ministry) we are very much dependent on people coming short term, to join us in this ministry.

At the moment about 80 – 100 kids join the activities offered regularly and 70 – 80 young people join the language courses.

The minimum time we would like people to stay on the field is one month – the longer the better. We are looking forward to working together to the benefit of the Timorese People and the kingdom of God.
