While serving with Shemah, you will get an opportunity to live with local families. This is one of the greatest ways we can develop close relationships with locals and enable effective conversations about Jesus. You will be immersed in village life and begin to understand local beliefs and the challenges locals face. Homestays are also a great way for us to give back to the community by providing income for these families.
All of the families we stay with are incredibly hospitable, friendly, and are selected by us. Although living conditions can be vastly different than what you are used to (we hope you like bucket showers!), we know this will be one of your favorite aspects about partnering with us.
