Relentless Recruiters

The McCropders have always been pretty shameless about recruiting people to join us either short-term or long-term.  We believe that everybody has skills or resources that can be used to further God's work around the world.  We realize that not everyone is called or suited to pack it all up and move overseas, but there are many ways to be involved from the U.S.A. as well.

With that said, we'd like to make our readers aware of some "job openings" on the McCropder team.  And don't worry, your last name doesn't need to have any portion of McCropder in it!

1)  We would really like an early elementary teacher to join our team in Burundi starting the Fall of 2013.  By that time (Lord willing), we will have finished our 10-month French language program in France and be in Burundi.  We anticipate that our first year in Burundi will be composed mostly of learning Kirundi (local language), building our houses, and setting up things at the hospital.  In order for us to properly invest in language and cultural learning, we will need someone to teach our precious children.  [In 2013 -- Anna (3rd grade), Elise (1st grade), & Micah/Abi/Maggie (Pre-school).]

2)  Since we will also need to build houses, we would love to have someone with construction and/or engineering experience to oversee that project.  We don't have a timeline yet as to when construction would begin, but we're estimating Summer/Fall 2013.  We'd also love to have some input from architects as we work on the design of our houses.

Note:  Individuals volunteering for these positions would be expected to raise financial support for their travel and living expenses.

If you or someone you know might be interested in exploring either of these possibilities, please contact us.  Of course, these are not the only two needs that we anticipate, so please get in touch with us if you want to talk about how your skills or resources might be useful to the work in Burundi.

I'm not a teacher or a Carpenter but if once things get going you need a RT to visit for a week let me know. I hope to be at Tenwek (dv) for 2 years starting January 2013. So I could just pop over for a visit

You can definitely sign me up for some short term trips in a couple years... I'd like to try for 3-4 weeks/year... what's the best time to come to burundi?
