Team Openings

  • July 24-August 3, 2016. Auburn UMC in Auburn, AL has openings for additional team members for their mission to Quesimpuco, Bolivia. They will be assisting veterinarians in administering vaccinations to livestock, laying out the foundations for a new medical clinic, and also need a team cook or two to prepare pre-planned meals for the team. The cost is $2000. No prior relevant experience is required, but the volunteer should be in good health to work hard in a harsh and high altitude environment; this trip involves working at an altitude over 12,000 feet with lengthy travel by SUV. For additional information or to sign up, please contact Keith Foster at keith.foster@aumc.net.

  • September 16-25, 2016. Landon Taylor, UMVIM's Director of Church of Relations, is leading a team to Cuba later this year. This mission journey will consist of construction ministry, but the team will also be growing established relationships between UMVIM and the United Methodist Church in Cuba. The cost is $2000, including airfare from Miami. Please respond by June 15 to allow plenty of time for visa application and approval. For more information, contact Landon at landon_taylor@umvim.org.
