What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Where: The Middle East                

When: Internships can be scheduled any time of year with approval

With whom: Western field workers serving with our organization.

Q & A with field workers in the Middle East:

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

The biggest ministry task that interns can fulfill in serving with us is teaching English to the refugees we serve. We also would appreciate having interns who could work with local entrepreneurs and connect them to an international network of business opportunities. Additionally, there are opportunities for medical professionals here and those would involve working alongside ex-pat doctors and nurses to help them run a clinic. For medical missions, this would require someone wanting to come long-term and spend 4-6 months building contacts and writing-up a proposal for future work here.

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? 

We can guide them in (1) writing-up their own Calling Statement with plans of reaching those goals, (2) teach them to get daily nourishment from God’s Word, (3) help them establish a network of contacts that will help keep them on the field, (4) show them the beauty of the people and the places of where they will serve.

3. What would a typical day look like? 

Interns will be in a community-living situation and their day will start with tasks to keep the community running. Next, they will have devotions with breakfast and then prep-time for giving classes or research for helpful networking. After that they will be off to visitation or class-time or other meetings. Finally in the evening, there will be other community tasks, a daily debrief, and a closing time of prayer. 

4. Specific skills an intern may expect to develop by the time the internship is completed:

(1) Interns will become learners of cross-cultural dynamics, i.e. language, use of time and money, relational issues, sense of beauty and purpose which can vary cross-culturally.

(2) They will learn why people do things differently. 

(3) Then interns will learn to help people identify what they want and need. 

(4) Finally, time permitting, interns will learn how to come-up with a proposal for future ministry with us or in another context.
