Set in the heart of the Middle East is a beautiful country encompassing arid desert, rocky mountains, and beautiful beaches along the coast. The people are often considered some of the friendliest and most hospitable in the world. Unfortunately, the desert reflects the spiritual situation of the country. There are very few known believers in this unreached land. But we know God is working among the people.
Goers are needed who are willing to invest heavily in developing relationships in the community. While immersing yourself in the country, you will learn about the culture, language, and heart of the community that you are living in. Goers will teach swimming to both children and adults from the local community as well as some expats. Goers will be assigned classes based on their experience level and interests. Classes range from beginners who are afraid of water to competitive swimmers. It is very common to easily enter into spiritual conversation with Muslim people because of their learned respect for 'Allah' and their faith. As a Goer, you will find that the relationships you make just by simply living in this context will easily lead to deep connection and deep spiritual conversation.
This team will encourage you to immerse yourself in a richly Muslim context through language and culture. You will be encouraged to connect with the local community around you and prayerfully consider the way the Lord is directing you day to day.
Love of swimming required. Experience teaching swimming or swimming competitively a plus. Goers will be required to complete a swim coaching certification (ASCA Level 10 course). Lifeguarding/CPR/First Aid certification a plus.
