Bee Keepers (Amongst Others) Needed in South Asia

Help rural villagers through a variety of community development endeavours, including teaching bee keeping to locals.

A team in South Asia seeks to minister to unreached villagers through various community development and business projects. The team currently run a tuition centre for children where they teach basic computer skills, and Spoken English and help with homework. They are eager to welcome people with other skills who might help start small agriculture-based businesses or teach basic business skills to rural people.

The team are particularly looking for people who can train adults in agriculture-based businesses, especially someone who is able to train villagers in bee keeping, which would provide an income and ward off wild elephants which pose problems to the villagers.

Prayer warriors are also very welcome. If this mission opportunity sounds like you, why not get in touch? One of our mobilisers would be happy to chat with you about this and other possibilities.

The missionary will need to raise funds to join this ministry.

One-Year Internship: Business as Mission in South Asia

South Asia
Art & Media | Business or Admin | IT

Use your business skills to reach the lost in South Asia.

We are a business team with the vision to see reproducing house churches established in the Muslim communities of our city. We have identified business as an excellent way to gain access into these closed communities and bless them on a multitude of levels. Our ultimate goal is to see transformed lives and communities.

What is the vision for the one-year internship?

  • Join the existing field team to engage the local community in relationships through a handicraft export business.
  • Gain practical church planting training and Business as Mission (BAM) training with an experienced field team.
  • Learn language and culture while serving the community.
  • Be mentored by a more mature member of the field team.

What are the basic qualifications?

  • You must be at least 21 years old and available to spend at least six months on the field.
  • Because of both cultural issues and the makeup of the existing team, single men will be ideal for this role. However, single women are also welcome, providing they are willing to split their time between helping care for children and helping with the business. Couples are also encouraged to apply.
  • The preferred time of service is from August to July, but other timeframes will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
  • The team are looking for people who have experience in product design, graphic design, social media marketing, photography/videography, sales/marketing, quality control, management, accounting/finance, writing, nursing/medical skills or other skills that would contribute to a small business.

    The team will definitely consider people who don’t necessarily have the particular skills listed above.  These skills would be HELPFUL but not required.  However, a willingness and humility to do whatever needs to be done is required.

  • A humble, teachable spirit and commitment to grow in God’s grace.
  • A love for the gospel and commitment to being continually impacted by its power.

What ministry activities will the intern be involved in?

Our team has a handicraft export business. We work with Muslim artisan men in silver and brass jewelry, gemstones, textiles, wood, and handmade paper. We also work with uneducated Muslim women who have previously had no source of income. Often these women are not allowed to leave their homes for cultural and religious reasons, so we train them and offer them work in textiles and jewelry that they can make in their homes. We give them fair wages in a caring community. We’ve helped them establish their own cottage industries and trained them in management skills. Because we work side by side with these Muslim artisans, we are able to share truth with them regularly and identify which people are interested in going deeper. Our ultimate goal is to see transformed lives and communities.
