Dates for the next workcamp in Nigeria are Nov. 2-19, sponsored by the Church of the Brethren Global Mission and Service. American Brethren and others who are interested in joining in a workcamp with members of Ekklesiyar Yan’uwa a Nigeria (EYN, the Church of the Brethren in Nigeria) are invited to consider this opportunity.

The workcamp location is yet to be announced. Participants will need to raise about $2,500 to cover the costs of transportation, food, and supplies. Those who apply for a workcamp are warned that they will face extreme heat in northeast Nigeria, as well as intense sun, and the rigors of life in a developing nation. Variables such as a rise in air fares or visa fees may affect the cost. The dates may vary by a day or two, depending on the availability of flights.

To express interest in attending the Nigeria workcamp, contact Kendra Harbeck in the Global Mission and Service office at 800-323-8039 ext. 388 or kharbeck@brethren.org .
