Short-termer from North America serving with children in Bogota Colombia: -MISSIONS INTERNSHIP-
Bogota

Q & A with ACTION missionary Phil Legal

What are some ministry tasks that you want the intern to accomplish while serving with you?

Interns would come work alongside a veteran missionary to minister to children at risk and the urban and rural poor through street evangelism. This ministry reaches out to the poor in Ciudad Bolivar, the largest region in Bogotá with almost a million people living in substandard housing. This ministry reaches out to over 200 people weekly. The Gospel is penetrating this poor area!

Yearly evangelistic camps are held in Colombia for impoverished children and youth as an evangelistic tool. These young people attend a camp that is outside of the city to discover a relationship with a loving God and understand how to grow spiritually. The follow-up continues after the event with hopes to incorporate them into a local church. Interns would assist in all aspects of this!

What are some key lessons from your ministry and walk with the Lord that you want to impart to the interns to help them as they consider their own individual call to missions or vocational ministry?

The importance of growing in your relationship with the Lord Jesus and your devotion to Him
Do not take yourself too seriously
Did the student come away from the internship understanding the importance of missions?
Was the intern willing to serve wherever asked?
