How To Apply
Going With SEAMIST: OPPORTUNITIES TO SERVE
Below are just a few
things you could
do... but the REAL question
"What does the LORD
want you to do?"
The important thing NOW is that you DO
SOMETHING about what you are HEARING from the Holy Spirit.
even if you don't find something below... God has a way to
fulfill EVERY call. Yes
, we really believe that and
1. Team Leaders To An
Unreached People Group
EVERY single country in
South East Asia is open... if the Lord is calling you
there. Team Leaders are usually married, mature in the faith,
entrepreneurial, risk takers, bold witnesses, movers and
shakers, and "people" people... You will need to wear many hats
to be successful.
You work will be to get an
assignment from God to an un-reached people group, study and
pray until you get a strategy that will work, recruit members
for your team, then get in there and get the gospel preached and
the church planted.
We will equip you and assist
you to do the work. What you need is a heart's conviction that
you are called to South East Asia and to work with SEAMIST. The
rest will all come together in time.
2. Team Members
Every Team needs members, men
and women that see and believe the team's vision and commit
themselves to accomplishing the mission. No one can do the job
alone - not even the team leader; but if everyone does their
part, then all will succeed. Team members are usually hard
working, persevering, full of faith, teachable, single-minded,
determined and zealous. LOYALTY will be one of your foremost
Your calling and maturity in
the Lord will prepare you to be a vital part of a team that
reaches out to the most needy people in South East Asia. Don't
worry that you don't know what to do, how to do it, or where to
go... all those things will come into focus in time. Are you
called? Then you can do this.
3. English Teachers
Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia.
Some opportunities are positions that pay a salary, some are in
places where the teacher pays to go... but the need for English
is our opportunity to get you into hard places. Don't
worry about qualifications, we can even teach you to teach and
get your certification for most areas. Is the Lord of the
Harvest answering your prayers to send workers to the field...
and calling you? Contact us!
4. Social Workers
Opportunities exist in
Indonesia, the Philippines, and most other countries in SEA to
reach out with a strategy of helps - of meeting felt needs.
Poverty alleviation, medical missions, and education are all
ways to touch lives. Social work needs to be carefully balanced
with spiritual work, but YOU can do it if you are called to
touch lives this way. Project leaders must be able to do it
all... strategize, recruit, find resource, and lead. Workers
must be teachable, committed to meeting eternal needs more than
temporal, and willing to live and work in hard, dirty, lonely
and sometimes risky places where people often don't want to hear
the gospel, but only want the benefit. Not for everyone.... but
if this is what God is calling you to do, you WILL succeed!
5. Short term missions
There are really only three
areas where short term workers can be very effective in areas
where the people still don't have churches and no one is saved
yet... prayer trips, survey trips, and special events. If you
are interested in these areas, perhaps we can accommodate you!
Prayer trips are just
hard work, you pray 6 to 8 hours a day in an area where Satan
opposes you with all his might. It takes months of prayer and
research to prepare a successful trip. SEAMIST only considers
groups of 5 to 20, only to un-reached groups, and only with
leaders who really know that a trip is the will of God for them
to lead. Want to do the MOST IMPORTANT thing that can be
done on the missions field...?
Survey trips are for
those who know they are called to a people group and want to go
in and get all the information they can on-site. SEAMIST will
facilitate such trips as the Lord leads and when it is mutually
beneficial. We network with many missions groups so whatever
group you want to survey, we are open to proposals and not at
all inhibited about putting mutually interested parties in touch
with each other when we can. Got a call to a people group...?
Want to get first hand info...? We can help.
Special events are
things like crusades or medical clinics or outreaches or
whatever that the Lord wants to do to connect you and your
resources with the needs of the lost or the various missions
workers wherever in South East Asia they are. We look for desire
on your part to do it, the leading of the Lord to help you, and
the BIG question of how it will accomplish preaching the gospel
and planting the church in South East Asia. Got an idea...? A
dream...? A heart's desire...?
6. You can pay an Asian to go in your place.
This is a GREAT deal for
everyone! The Asian or African worker goes and does
the work, you pay the bills, you both get the rewards!
7. Anything else...?
