Job Description:
Befriend Baptist Physicians’ & hospital staff to help them share the gospel with patients. These patients and their accompanying families can become a seed for a village church. Be a friend to college students at a nearby Baptist nursing school.

Cultural Information:
A medium sized city with a few malls, parks, and amenities. Nearby Villages have less advanced technology and infrastructure. All are in a tropical climate and can be cool at night. Sun is hotter during midday hours. Average highs are 85 Fahrenheit and lows of 75 year round. Villages have rice and other crop fields nearby. The city sits at the foot of several mountains and volcanoes. The majority religion is Islam. The call to prayer is very loud at 4:30 am, 11:30 a.m 3p, 5:30p and 6:45 p.m every day. The men will go pray in their houses or at the mosque around these times. Men should wear pants most of the time. Ladies should plan to wear skirts, pants or capris and ¾ shirt sleeves, covering knees and elbows, but no headscarf. Modest clothing at all times. Smile a lot, be friendly and willing to speak to anyone. Try new foods, "you love my food means you love me."

Geographic Information:
Small to medium city

Health Considerations:
In the summer months our city can get dusty so asthma or dust allergies could be a problem. In many homes, the men smoke cigarettes. Also mold is a problem in some places. If you have mold sensitivity, this might be a tough assignment. A person with extra sensitivity to motion sickness may have challenges during the travels to the locations but does not mean impossible to take the assignment, just take meds. Basic health clinics and hospitals are in the location assignment.
