What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Where: Parque Residencial Cocaia, São Paulo City, Brazil

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

With Whom: ACTION Brazil field workers including Samuel Condori (pictured) who are a part of the Vale Ouro (Worth Gold) Project

Q & A with ACTION Brazil field workers:

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

It would be a big help to have interns spending time with the children and young people we serve, teaching whatever it is they are a gifted in (teaching English, arts, sports, etc.), helping with Bible teaching, discipleship, evangelism, home visits, and helping maintain and develop the mission base (cleaning, cooking, construction, painting, and so on).  

2. What would a typical day look like?

It depends on which day it is. For example, on Mondays the intern would wake up early to have a quiet time before some of the teens arrive. Afterwards, they would have breakfast and share a devotional with the teens, then go about the daily activities such as sports ministry or English classes, have a snack, and eat lunch together. In the afternoon there could be more devotionals and activities with the boys and teens. The kids then spend time working on their homework and help tidy up the mission base. 

Other days there are home visits, leisure activities like movie time, a Bible study together, discipling, a special time of prayer, music practice, and so on. Some days there are also groups of girls who come in to do arts and crafts. Most days there are teens in the afternoon who run an online radio program and in the mornings they often do training and practice for this too. On Sundays, there is a church service at night. We are also trying to start a new program to reach boys between 17 and 18 years old through a vocational training course to prepare them for after they finish high school so that they don’t join or return to a gang and drug dealing.  

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

I would say the best way we could review effectiveness would be to make a list of goals together with the intern and sit with them every week or so to review progress and to modify goals as needed. 

4. What are some specific skills an intern may expect to develop by the time the internship is completed?

They would learn how to have a quiet time and how to organize a Bible study for young people or improve in these areas if they already have experience. They would hopefully improve their Portuguese, as well.

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. Speaking Portuguese is a plus. 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.
