English Camp Needs YOUR Help
We Need YOUR Help at English Camp! If you can speak English, you love Jesus, and you like kids, would you consider serving for three weeks this summer in Valencia, Spain? Mark and Carla Hanson, World Partners missionaries, are working on their annual English Camp and though all the classes are full with waiting lists, they still need volunteers! We're looking for leaders for sports, crafts, snack, music, and the informal English class. We also need assistants and people to move around with the kids from place to place. If kids aren't your thing, you could work with parents who want to learn the language as well! No teaching experience or Spanish language skills are required. Dates are June 29-July 20 and the cost is $1500 plus airfare. Time is short! To apply or for more information, please email World Partners International Service Administrator Leslie Foster or 260-747-9439 x 208.
