Duties at the Hostel

Of course there is practical work that has to be done in running a hostel but the emphasis is still on the contact with the guests. We want to encourage volunteers to develop and invest their spiritual gifts (1 Cor. 12 and Romans 12). At the same time, it is clear that God’s love flows just as well through serving in practical duties as in direct communication.
The work is divided by means of a task schedule so that everyone knows who does what and when. As much as possible, consideration is given to skills and gifts, but there are just some tasks that must be done which don’t require specific spiritual gifts.
The scheduled team eats breakfast at around 8 a.m. (08.00) and then the hostel is cleaned. This is a job requiring several hours then there is a siesta until 3 p.m. (15.00). Then the team meet together for prayer and worship. At around 4 p.m. (16.00) the kitchen work begins and there is more happening on the terrace. The meal is from around 6.30 –7.45 p.m. (18.30-19.45). Afterwards everyone helps with cleaning up and filling and emptying the dishwasher
In principle, all volunteers who don’t have a free day, assist with the afternoon prayers, meal and meditation. The work at the hostel is intense but the practical work is limited to a maximum of six hours a day.
