    Having served as a missionary for a number of years in Indonesia, could I suggest that instead of recruiting 8 – 10 Canadians, a small team of perhaps 3 should go out and supervise local people to work on these projects. I am sure there would be labour available locally of a sufficiently high calibre to handle this work. Then leave tools with them so they can continue working for themselves.

      Thank you very much for your feedback. We will share your feedback with the necessary parties involved with this initiative.

      These teams, made up of a regular core of people, are committed to working alongside nationals on these multi-phased projects and have a priority to share knowledge and skills, when needed, to improve quality of workmanship. As a practice we often leave tools after a project as well. These teams have also given us an opportunity to build a deeper relationship with the National Church.
