What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Teamwork

Place of Service: San José, Costa Rica

Report To: ACTION missionary Andrea Rodríguez

Starting Date: Team trips and internships can be scheduled year-round with approval

Overview: Come and enjoy the opportunity to partner with different local ministries as they are engaging poor communities and people at risk.

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

When coming with an open heart and flexibility, you’ll find there are multiple ways to get involved with the people and the ministries. You could join us in prayer vigils in front of a brothel, pray with people being sexually exploited as they’re in the streets, provide food, snacks or clothes to the homeless, participate in a wheelchair distribution, play with orphans, teach at a Sunday school, translate documents, help build or restore infrastructure, love and care for girls that were rescued from prostitution, teach a Bible study, or encourage local missionaries. Flexibility, creativity and willingness to respond will be paramount.
2. 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 share my testimony and encourage them to step out in faith to serve in any way and capacity that the Lord leads them to.
• They will be exposed to multiple needs, violence, suffering and there is without a doubt a lot to learn as you care for others and get the privilege to pray for them and listen to their stories.
• They will be exposed to God’s tangible love, care, mercy and provision and that’s life-changing.
• I would love for them to leave with a sense of urgency to continue to be involved in God’s mission and to do it with joy, understanding that it’s our privilege to partner with God and not a burden.
3. What criteria do you use to measure the effectiveness of an intern serving with you?
• Attitude. There will be challenges, and expectations could be unmet. Facing the work with mercy and joy.
• Flexibility. Immersing in a different culture will mean a different worldview and values. It’s important for the interns to try to respect those differences and to learn and adjust to them when appropriate.
• Diligence. You’ll be given a lot of freedom and you’ll need to be diligent to reach the goals.
• Growth. This includes demonstrating the fruit of the Spirit and carrying out acts of service.
• Accountability. We’ll have at least one meeting each week to evaluate progress, provide feedback, help with culture shock and pray together.
4. Please list specific skills an intern may expect to develop by the time the internship is completed.
• Spanish language and cultural understanding.
• Awareness of heartbreaking realities and compassion toward vulnerable communities.
• Impacts to their prayer life.
• Readiness to be used by God.
