Have you ever volunteered to serve people from another culture? Have you ever blessed children who do not have a traditional family? Have you ever received hugs from dozens of little ones, all on the same day?

Sarah, a recent Children of Zion Village volunteer, told me that her experience at COZV was very different than she expected - but it was absolutely wonderful. God taught her a lot about herself and about others, and most important, she knows that she has made a difference in the lives of a group of children. Sarah is planning to return to serve at COZV for an extended time.

In the next few months we have several church teams and a number of individuals volunteering at COZV, giving 2 weeks to several months of their time to be a blessing. The teams will work on building construction as well as do special projects with the children. The individuals will share their skills wherever needed. Some will teach a trade to some of the children. Some will assist in the classroom. Some will teach Bible lessons. Some will spend time encouraging the staff. Some will work with the young children. Some will help in the agriculture area. Some will help with administration or cooking or cleaning or maintenance. There are always needs. There are always people to bless.

Is God calling you to come and serve with us in Namibia? We are currently accepting applications for volunteers to serve after October, 2009. Is He calling you?
