Angola: Internship

Cabaia, Angola 

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

WITH WHOM: ACTION field workers Paulo and Dayse Varão

Overview: Help a young Brazilian family serving in Angola to reach their community for Christ by joining them in outreach and supporting their family in practical ways as well! 

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

It will depend on what they want to do and on their gifts and talents. We have a variety of opportunities here at our project in Angola, but we have two urgent needs, which are: 

Homeschool: We have two children, nine and six years old, who do homeschooling in English through the ABEKA system. We need someone who will support them during their study hours. 

Our Community Center: We need people who are skilled in sports, carpentry, sewing, or painting, to help us implement courses for teenagers and young people. This does not prevent someone who has other gifts and talents from coming here to serve with us. If interns have other skills, we will find ways for them to use those skills to be a blessing to the community! 

What would a typical day look like? 

It depends on how interns would like to be involved. For example, if they help with homeschool, it will be in the mornings. Then in the afternoons they will be free to serve at the Community Center or serve with their gifts and talents in other ways. If the person wants to help only at the Community Center, we will decide together what will best fit the person's interests and create a good schedule for them. 

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

They will learn to work in an African context and see it is a culture that is very open to new things. They will learn that, to do missions, they don't need a lot of resources, but with a heart willing to obey and go where the Lord calls them, all things will be added to them. Interns will learn some Portuguese 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?

Love the Lord above all things and be willing to serve in the expansion of the Kingdom of God. Even when everything seems against you and difficulties come, don't give up! Keep growing in your intimacy with God and trusting in the His provision and direction (Philippines 4:19, Ephesians 2:10).
