Think About It: Volunteers Needed for Childcare

We have a request for you to consider.

Each year our team has a face-to-face meeting somewhere.  This year it was in North Carolina following the CBF General Assembly, because all our team members were in the U.S.  Next year, our Romany Team will meet with the Albanian-Ukrainian team on March 27-31, 2014 in Palma de Mallorca, an island off the coast of Spain.

There are many logistics involved in such a meeting, of course.  But there’s one important question that we, as parents, think of immediately:  While the M’s meet, what will the MK’s be doing?  It’s an important question for two reasons.  First, the adults will need to give their full attention during the meeting times.  But even more important for us is that this time can be a real ministry to our MK’s.  Seldom do they get to meet and play together, with other kids who can completely understand what it’s like to be an MK.

We’re looking for someone to love our children during these days.  It’s an opportunity to minister to these MK’s and to their parents, as well as a chance to visit a place that (from all we can tell) is absolutely gorgeous!

Think about it.  Pray about it.  Let us know if you’re interested – or if you have an idea of someone else who might be.  See the description below for more information.

Childcare worker needed!

Who: Couple or individual to provide childcare for four children of CBF Field Personnel (one preschooler who loves LEGOs, one 2nd grader who loves math, and two 3rd graders who love to chase pigeons)

What: Childcare during team meetings – programming can range from just kind-fun activities to VBS-type ideas. Depending on the volunteer’s comfort level, some sightseeing or museum visiting, etc. with the kids is also possible.

When: March 27-31, 2014 (Actual dates of the meetings)

Where: Palma de Mallorca, Spain

Why: To serve God through service to these missionary families. To have fun with some awesome kids. To learn more about how CBF is serving around the world.

Costs: Because this is a volunteer position, it is necessary that all expenses be provided by the volunteer. (flights, lodging, food, local transportation)

Lodging for a couple – $280; includes breakfast and lunch during meetings and 4 nights hotel stay (dinners are not included in this fee)

Transportation – flight estimates from ATL to PMI (just to give an idea) are around $1000 per person.

Other fees to consider – local transportation during meeting, any activity expenses, other meals, souvenirs, etc.
