This team will join long-term partners who work with the most vulnerable in their community. Many refugees flee their war-torn countries to this area and are not met with kindness. The team is committed to showing these displaced image-bearers the hands and feet of Christ. Some of the ways they do this is by visiting refugee friends in their homes, sharing the love of Christ with them, and walking alongside them to help fulfill their needs.
As team members are learning from and engaging with others, they should have a heart posture of humility and remember that culture does not make people, people make the culture. Participants are expected to attend team-wide activities, events, fasts, meals, prayer meetings, work meetings, etc. Be ready to be flexible, as activities are often subject to change due to various factors (e.g. last minute invite to a village event).
