Q & A with ACTION missionary Adam Hussey

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

Since this will be focused more on the video ministry I would like to see several videos completed by the end of the internship. This includes conceptualizing, storyboarding, scripting, planning, shooting and editing each video project. Along with these video projects the intern would also be involved in our street children ministry programs and discipleship ministry. I would like to also have them visit several other ACTION missionaries and see the wider scope of missions as they might also have a burden for those areas of ministry as well.

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?

I would like to see the intern come away with a better understanding of what the call to missions is really about. It’s about a life dedicated to the Lord and ministry. This is not just done through missions but rather missions is just one of the many ways that God calls each of us to serve Him. I want the intern to see that no matter what gifts and abilities the Lord has blessed you with you can use them for the glory of God. I want the intern to see that missions isn’t for those who want to “see the world” and “eat strange food,” but it’s a calling from God and a call to leave your nets and follow Christ.

What percentage of their time will be spent on administration, discipleship, and evangelism?

Administration would be one day a week. This includes email, blog, website or Facebook updates to supporters/churches. It’s also a time to do work fund reimbursements if there are any. Our discipleship ministry is currently a one-on-one ministry. I (Adam) meet with one teenager from our church here each week. We go through a discipleship course which includes questions and scripture memory verses each week. Evangelism is done through our street children programs which are currently twice a week (Tuesday’s and Friday’s).

What criteria do you use to measure the effectiveness of an intern serving with you?

While serving in Uganda in 2008, we had a team come from The Masters college in California. When they arrived they were eager to serve and be involved in ministry but were also very teachable and humble. They allowed us to instruct them in how they can be involved and be a help within the ministry. They followed each of our instructions and never went “rogue” as some short-term missionaries and interns do. This is crucial and will be the difference between bringing joy and help to the ministry or discouragement to the ministry. The intern must be willing to be humble and teachable and follow the host missionaries’ instructions and not act as if they know it all or they know better. The host missionary will continue to serve in their country long after the intern leaves so it’s important that the intern abides by the rules set before them.

What would a typical day look like?

As with most missionaries there is no typical day. Shooting schedules are often shifted, discipleship meetings cancelled without notice, unexpected traffic or holiday’s that make daily tasks next to impossible. What we do have scheduled is Tuesday and Friday evenings are the street children programs, each Saturday is a one-to-one discipleship with a teen from our church, Monday is usually admin day. The rest of the days of the week are filled with planning video shoots, editing videos, traveling to video shoots etc. These are all dependent on the availability of the client that the video is being done for.

Please list specific skills an intern may expect to develop by the time the internship is completed.

Time management is one skill that will be acquired. Patience and flexibility in ministry as many things get postponed, moved or cancelled. Video skills will be sharpened and honed. Many opportunities to share testimonies and give devotionals (sometimes even without prior notice). Opportunities to get out of your comfort zone and serve in ways you might not be familiar with or might not come easy to you such as working with the extreme poor. Getting familiar with the local language (Tagalog) and how to get around on public transportation.

Please list any books you would encourage the interns to read before their field experience with you.

One book that I would ask the intern to read before arriving is “Let the Nations be Glad” by John Piper. If they have read it already then they can reread it for a reminder. This book will help them as they serve in missions and ministry.
