What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Chad Smiles

As I write there are many listed opportunities to teach English on shorttermmission.com. The truth is you can teach English in almost any country you desire. Why choose Chad? It's hard and it's hot… but maybe you are the one person God is calling there for a time such as this. Watch this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tlK7YthiCVA&feature=youtu.be

Our language centers in Abeche (North-eastern Chad) offer English classes for up to 15 adults per class. Students are from all walks of life: farmers, merchants, soldiers, artists, teachers, doctors, engineers, and government officials. This is a great opportunity to touch different levels of society with the truth of Christ. Courses are offered for beginner through advanced levels, but we never have enough teachers to offer as many classes as are needed. Often students have to wait months to continue to the next level. Come join us to make this ministry an even more effective tool for the truth!

Each course lasts from ten to twelve weeks at a time with a break of several weeks between sessions. Other opportunities through the English program include tutoring high school students in English and participating in the English Club for advanced English speakers. A minimum commitment of four months is needed but six months to a year is even better. Knowledge of French is helpful for a more effective ministry.

Individuals, couples, a family (school-age children would need to be home schooled), and small teams of 3 or 4 are welcome for this ministry.

Responsibilities include:

• preparing and teaching the lesson

• marking homework

• overseeing a final exam

• having a ceremony to hand out certificates

Though we keep a low profile in teaching our English classes, there are some opportunities to share of the Hope we have with our students.

Relation of Opportunity to National Church and/or Long-term Goals

There are many churches but the vast majority operate in Southern tribal languages. There is very little intentional outreach to the unreached people groups. We work in local Arabic and engage with people of many different ethnicities. Chad has well over 100 distinct ethnic groups. Most of those in the northern two-thirds of the country have no known Christians.
