Individual Volunteer Opportunities: MEXICO

GENERAL

1. Pastor for English Language Congregations. In the cities of Guanajuato and San Miguel, a number of North Americans have retired. The opportunity for outreach with an English language congregation, both to permanent English-speaking residents, as well as to a large number of tourists is a priority of the Central Conference of the Methodist Church of Mexico.

In Guanajuato, the church has a sanctuary in the city center where no one meets now. In San Miguel, the work is to start a congregation in a city where land has been purchased.

Needed: A firm faith in Christ and an understanding of the Methodist connection, with a call to evangelization, flexibility and a willingness to be under ecclesial authority. Small stipend for food and travel.

2. Hogar Estudiantil Indigena, Tlaxiaco, Oaxaca. Basic Spanish required. Volunteer would tutor after school, supervise homework, teach English, act as a housemother or housefather, teach computer skills. Request 6 months commitment if possible. Will provide a room.

3. Agua Prieta, Sonora, Mexico. A Methodist faith-based complex which involves ministries through a Methodist Church Sanctuary, a Wellness Clinic, a Community Center, and a Computer Training Room. Volunteer needed to serve as Wellness Clinic Coordinator to promote, nurture, coordinate and operate a free health care ministry for approximately 300 impoverished folks. Volunteer will also interact with and coordinate United Methodist Volunteers In Mission medical and construction teams from the US. On-site housing provided. Conversational Spanish very helpful for volunteer.
