Upper Guinea is a "forgotten" area of the world. Towns have no city water or electricity or typical western conveniences. Missionaries live in rental facilities and set up their own solar electrical and well water plumbing systems. The climate is hot for only a short portion of the year, very limited to no air conditioning because of lack of electricity. Many supplies and services are five hours away in Bamako, Mali. There are bustling markets but supplies and food are different than in the US. Cook from scratch.WORKING ENVIRONMENT
WorldVenture in upper Guinea is focusing on the unreached peoples of the area of whom less than 150 are believers. The rest are a mix of a major religion and spirit worshipers. The area has a population of about 2 million with a church attendance of all evangelical groups combined of less than 5,000. The considerable spiritual oppression to down right spiritual attack, remoteness, limited resources, slowness of the work and climate make this one of the highest areas of missionary attrition in the world. Yet there is a good working relationship among several missions praying and fellowshipping together including SIM, IMB, and Pioneer Bible Translators. WorldVenture believes that within this generation, we can transform this land and society. We are praying and working toward this goal. We invite committed, dedicated, evangelistically and long-term focused believers to join us.INTERNSHIP
