Edric’s Legacy

Posted on

Dr Edric Baker established a health care project in rural Bangladesh many years ago. It’s a project for the poor by the poor that has empowered local people to serve one another through basic health care. Though Edric passed away earlier this year, his legacy continues at the  Kailakuri Health Care Project.

The project is currently searching for volunteers to fill a number of roles:

Someone who can help with English communications, writing updates and liaising with the project’s supporters around the world. A nurse practitioner who can act as a consultant for the mother-child village health programme. A medical doctor who can act as a consultant for paramedics and internee doctors.

The preference is for volunteers to be able to stay for at least three months. They are expected to fund their visa and return airfare, though the project can provide free accommodation and meals. An interpreter can also be provided.

If you are interested in any of these roles, email office@nzcms.org.nz and we can send through further information.

New Role: Asia Network Coordinator

Posted on

Asia is a region of the world that needs some of the most dedicated, strategic Gospel partnerships. The continent is a melting pot for the world’s major religions and is home to an incredible diversity of cultures. Many of its cities and economies are growing rapidly, in many places it is experiencing rapid cultural change due to globalization and many of its people have never heard the Gospel. But God is at work in Asia building his Kingdom through many emerging mission movements. NZCMS is therefore seeking to identify and work with strategic partners to support missional efforts of the Church in Asia.

To better fulfil this vision for Asia, we are establishing a new Mission Partner role based in Asia: the NZCMS Network Coordinator for Asia. This person will provide leadership and oversight for NZCMS in Asia, networking with strategic partners, identifying mission opportunities, developing synergies with our sister organisation AsiaCMS, deploying and supporting Mission Partners, and nurturing key Asian mission leaders.

The successful candidate will have a track record of significant accomplishments in mission engagement and cross- cultural/mission experience in an Asian Context.

More hands needed

I’ve been having a great time interacting with patients at World Mate Emergency Hospital in Battambang, Cambodia. But I have a significant problem. As it turns out, I only have one pair of hands and that isn’t nearly enough to handle all the work that needs to be done!

If you would like to help out, there is an opportunity for short term volunteers in my activity programme.  Are you planning a holiday in Asia?  Could you call in to help for a while? Drop me an email at annemcc3@gmail.com if this interests you.
