What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

una 3 2021.jpg

Where: Cidade Júlia, São Paulo – Brazil                

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

With whom: ACTION Brazil field workers at Um Novo Amanhecer (A New Dawn)

Q & A with ACTION Brazil field workers at Um Novo Amanhecer:

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

We’d love to have interns who can teach the Bible to children and also assist in classes given by the project, such as karate, English, soccer, pilates, and baking. Additionally, interns would be engaging in evangelism whenever the opportunity arises, but especially when our team visits the nearby slum communities.

2.What would a typical day look like?

A typical day will consist of being at the ministry base to prepare for whatever it is that is the intern’s role (whether it's a sports class, language-learning course, etc.), carrying out said classes or activities, spending time with and learning from the other project volunteers and leaders, likely sharing a meal or snack with others throughout the day, and providing help wherever it is needed whether it's in one of the programs, cleaning the base, doing administrative tasks, and so on. 

In general, it is necessary to be in communion with the Lord 24/7, praying and thinking about the Word and work in which the intern is doing, but the work itself should not exceed 8 to 10 hours per day. We will plan ahead, make a schedule of what needs to be done, and help interns learn to say no when no is necessary. Going slower and thinking more does not necessarily mean being less effective.

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

  • Ascertain how to approach and help people with different needs or need levels.

  • Evangelize in a context where poverty exists and develop the ability to see a need and meet it. 

  • Actively learn how to work effectively in groups.

  • Understand other cultures and how to act and react in different contexts.

  • Understand people and their differences, become more mature in not being constantly tossed around by others’ words (become more emotionally mature).

Relation of Opportunity to National Church and/or Long-term Goals

We seek to please Christ, the Builder and Head of the Church, by conducting our ministries closely with local churches for the advancement and building up of the Body of Christ with the view that all believers will grow in maturity becoming more and more like Christ with the hope that some become pastors, evangelists, teachers, and others cross-cultural missionaries (Matthew 16:18; Ephesians 4:4-16).

Training debriefing
If the participant is going for less than six months, they will receive mentoring and coaching by someone on our Mobilization Team and also work through pre-field reading material and assignments. If the applicant is going longer than six months, they will participate in an in-person orientation and a separate in-person cross-cultural training course before deploying to the field. They will also have to be able to communicate in Portuguese, so Portuguese classes are recommended. All participants will have a debrief interview with the person from our Mobilization Department who mentored and coached them before and during their time of service. They will also be asked to fill out a post-trip evaluation form to help them process their experience and next steps and provide our home office and field missionaries helpful feedback for sending future short-term workers.
