In partnership with the Teach, Hoops & Heal teams, spend your summer sharing what God is doing through their daily ministries. You'll travel between the teams, sharing their daily lives & stories through blog posts & capturing media clips. You'll also be involved in evangelism... always ready to share THE story with someone who hasn't heard.
Help your field supervisor by creating media pieces to be used in telling the story of what God is doing in the Bicol region. Tasks may include taking pictures & video, webpage updating & writing short articles.
Your first stop will be a joint orienation with other Nehemiah Teams. Learning the skills needed to carry out your assignment as well as team building will fill these first few days. You will then travel on to your final destination for the summer. Following your ministry time you will return to the US fora joint debrief... sharing all God has done over the summer.
