A Ministry of Presence abroad to the poor & suffering; Missionaries needed!

Posted on:
Program Timing: As Soon As Possible / Location: International
Program: Heart's Home USA

Heart’s Home USA is in need of service-oriented young adults who wish give 1-2 years to live in one of their mission homes throughout the world, most of which are located in slums or impoverished areas. Volunteers live in a simple home with a community of international young adult volunteers, share an intense prayer life, and offer A MINISTRY OF PRESENCE to all those they encounter in their neighborhoods, especially those that suffer the most – the isolated, lonely, and abandoned. By offering their gratuitous friendship, volunteers strive to make Christ’s love and mercy, and Mary’s compassion and consolation, incarnate in the lives of their friends. Through authentic, transformative relationships, volunteers desire to restore a sense of human dignity to the forgotten and suffering. Volunteers also regularly visits places of deep suffering such as jails, hospitals and slums. Furthermore, it is through the relationships built with the people they serve and a deep familiarity with their needs, that volunteers are able to act as a valuable bridge between those in need and the resources and aid available to them locally, such as soup kitchens, rehabilitation centers, and public assistance, etc.
We are in need of Christ-seeking young people who desire to make a radical gift of self and encounter Christ in the heart of the slums.
