    We are looking for 1-2 motivated, energetic and highly creative people who love kids and Christmas and have experience decorating, creating workshops, activities, DIY crafts and games for children of all ages. This would be centered around Christmas time. Our heart is to give the children of missionaries a feeling of Christmas holiday cheer being so far away from their home countries.

    Preference to those who share the Christian Faith. References and back round check required. We are in a rural setting in nature with tropical temperatures. Non denominational non smoking/drinking facililty. This is for a 2-3 week stint over the Christmas/New Year Holiday. We are looking for activities for children to do in the afternoons and/or evenings. Approx. 4-5 hours a day, minus Sundays. Amount of children can vary based on guest occupancy, 10-20ish.
