The reality of the work in Jerez is that a STA needs to have 4 years of high school Spanish or two years of college Spanish (or the equivalent). It is imperative that there are two STAs serving together in this ministry.
The STA opportunity is teaching and sharing with the kids in a kids club and youth group setting. An STA would also be asked to volunteer in a variety of ways within the congregation and to serve and minister to adults within the church body.
There is an opportunity to be directly involved with Ambassador Institute training. The STA will need a strong understanding of the Bible and a willingness to learn and be trained in the Ambassador Institute Curriculum.
This STA opportunity is with a discipleship ministry that works with disabled orphans.

Help in the home for Patricia and the Pillman family. The Pillman’s have 4 children and they've have had a hard time finding dependable help in the home. They could use some help in the home with cooking, laundry, and taking care of the kids.
There would also be an opportunity to work as a homeschool coach and assistant. Homeschooling is very new and is relatively uncommon in Ecuador. Four or five Ecuadorian families in the church have begun homeschooling and the congregation has committed to help and encourage them in any way possible. An STA would be a huge help in visiting the families, encouraging them, and teaching classes such as English, music, and/or other subjects.
Aletheia Bible School in Ecuador has requested an STA interested in teaching English to college aged students. The STA would live on site at the school working under the leadership of Paz de Dios Church and be active in ongoing ministry with the students. This can range from youth/children's ministry, camp ministry, and labor projects.

Campo Mourão, Brazil
At the seminary there is a need for general upkeep and maintenance. This includes mowing lawns, painting, cleaning, and other general labor. The assistant will need to be open to direction from both national leaders and missionaries.

At the Miriam Home general assistance with the children is needed. This includes everything from giving babies and toddlers baths, to playing with the children, and accompanying Jonni Sliver or one of the “house moms” to the doctor when a child has an appointment.
The specific jobs vary from assistant to assistant as they evaluate each person’s skills and let them work with the children in their areas of strength. For instance, when someone has a crafting ability, it is wonderful for them to teach this ability to the older children in the house. The same is true for sports and music – STA’s not only teach useful skills to the kids, but through this teaching time ties are created between the children and the assistants.
