Proposed 2020 WEI
WEI is a tool to reach men and women from all nations, including our own.
English is the common language of business and politics globally. We use the carrot of helping with English to teach the gospel.
WEI lessons are presented in various formats. The materials provide an easy approach to help establish relationships with students by serving them. Very important, you do not need to be an expert in English to join this ministry.
Come join this good work! The harvest is truly plentiful.
Proposed 2020 WEI
Make a Commitment
Teachers have the flexibility of committing for a 2 week mission, 3 week mission, 4 week mission, or 6 week mission. WEI short-term mission efforts are now being organized in cities all over the world where churches of Christ exist. We recruit Christian teachers year round, however, most of our teaching teams are organized for the summer months. Our teachers include: Doctors, Homemakers, Attorneys, Engineers, University Students, Teachers, Retired People, and others.
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you”. Mt. 28:19-20.
Teach and encourage Christians from different countries and cultures, while at the same time doing the most meaningful and important work we can do in this life. May we never tire of the task Jesus commissioned us to perform.
Follow Up is Natural
This is the greatest concern of permanent missionaries. Lack of follow up is one of the aspects of short term teaching missions that give rise to justifiable criticism. Normally, it is physically impossible for missionaries to follow up on every student that studies with the short-term mission. They will, of course, continue to study with those who show the brightest potential to obey the gospel.
WEI is designed to be, and is a very effective Bible teaching correspondence course. Follow up can be accomplished by each teacher continuing the advanced lessons by way of correspondence. Teachers will have already developed a personal relationship with their students, thus giving added incentive to continue communication. Teachers continue to enjoy the spiritually thrilling and rewarding experiences of sharing their faith even after leaving the mission field. Students don’t feel the sudden abandonment of someone they have grown to respect and love. Many students in the past have come to the Lord through post short-term mission correspondence. There is no greater joy than to hear through email or letter that a former student has obeyed the gospel.
For this reason, we believe the WEI short-term mission approach to be the most responsible approach to short-term missions. The mission does not end when teachers return to America. Teachers must make a commitment to their students to continue the WEI advanced Bible lessons before they leave the mission field.
