Bring your creative marketing strategy to help us connect with South Asians. We need your marketing skills to craft your own master plan… design flyers and giveaways, update our website, write blogs, create demos and use your gifts to advance the kingdom. These people have little or no access to the good news and you may be the very first person to tell them! Come explore college campuses, coffee shops, and local hangouts to boldly introduce yourself and make new friends. As you build relationships, you will introduce them to the Christ who changed your life and gave you a message to take around the globe!
South Asian culture revolves on gender roles and dress is reflective of this. Life here is very relational and family centric. Be prepared for invitations into people's lives, including their home. Expect to share a meal with someone, but expect to work amongst your gender. Religion is also central to most South Asians. It is an easy topic so prepare yourself to make this part of every conversation.
South Asia contains various geographic contexts. From sea coast to the Himalya Mountains, be prepared for a third world country where development is not the primary goal. Most settings will be high levels of pollution. The mega cities and rural areas alike face this issue.
Most likely an adequately furnished apartment or guest house will serve as your home.
Severe, untreatable asthma is very much a concern here.
Should be able to navigate through crowded cities for long hours. Will require standing on your feet and walking much of the day. Severe allergies or history of severe medical conditions must be confirmed with field for approval.
Equipment to Bring:
Be prepared to "dress up" in comparison to your home culture. Guys will be expected to wear long pants and button down shirts and ladies will be expected to dress in national clothing. In some mega cities, ladies will wear more western influenced.
