French learned in France or QuebecLANGUAGE USED
English and FrenchLIVING ENVIRONMENT
Live on the former ICA (International Christian Academy) Campus or other mission compound. As peace comes one might live in town. Northern Ivory Coast is generally hot and dry or hot and humid depending on the rains. Supplies are somewhat difficult to get but not impossible. Roads, phones, internet and electricity exist especially in cities but services may be sporatic.WORKING ENVIRONMENT
Very few missionaries and few westerners because of the conflict that has gone on in the country. We believe now is the time for people to begin training for ministry in northern Ivory Coast. In a worst case situation of continuing conflict you could use French to teach English in neighboring countries. Work with Rod and Angelika Ragsdale who are passionate and very skilled at outreach and dream with the nationals of creating a Christian university that would teach in agriculture, business English and missions. You would learn tons from them and gain from their experience. They want people to join with them in their ministry. The WorldVenture related team in Cote dIvoire is becoming multi-national. In the future it is possible that team meetings will be conducted in French, the language of CI of international exchange.INTERNSHIP
