While the builders on a LENDAHAND Mission Teams project are working, there are many other opportunities to serve. Ministry teams conduct Bible Schools for local children, introducing them to Christ through Bible stories and verses. Teams lead children in arts and crafts, puppets, games, snacks, and music. We look for people who are gifted in working with children. If there is a language barrier, translators are provided, although we have found that the love of Christ is easily communicated without words.
LENDAHAND Mission Teams also eat! We have teams of dedicated cooks and bottle washers who ensure that meals for our teams are nutritious, filling, and tasty. They also pay very careful attention to hygiene, to ensure that everyone stays healthy and strong even in very primitive conditions. Working on a kitchen team requires only a love for service, some physical stamina, and an affinity for Clorox.
