Has God given you a gift for languages? Can you readily go between French and English? Are you familiar with research on the Internet? Do you realize that all of these are useful in mission?
As part of SIM's commitment to develop and partner with local churches in the task of reaching the world for Christ, L'Institut Missiologique du Sahel (IMS) trains mission leaders, trainers, and mobilizers for emerging missions from French-speaking Africa. Resources on mission in French are rare, and in this role, you will add to the students' breadth of learning and understanding of subjects.
Your primary responsibility would be to proofread materials that have been translated from English to French to validate their accuracy and ensure readability, mainly on mission-related topics. A secondary task would be to use and train others in using mission and mission-related French resources available on the Internet to help augment library resources and aid in students' skills in research for their theses. Your skills are valuable!
