International (MNN) ― Thanks to Operation Mobilization Asia Challenge Teams (ACT), now you can see what it would be like to serve in Asia. The ACT program offers potential missionaries the opportunity to travel to various locations in Asia and experience diverse cultures and peoples.
A new recruiting DVD recently arrived to educate people about mission programs in Southern and Eastern Asia. The DVD targets individuals between the ages of 18 and 30 years old.
There are three versions of the DVD, and each gives prospective missionaries a taste of Asia. An overview of ACT's one- and two-year programs is contained in the 2-minute version. More detail is included in the 5-minute version, and ACT's 8-minute version gives the greatest amount of detail. This version features interviews and personal testimonies from previous ACT workers.
Teams of 3 to 4 people from different nationalities are placed in locations around South and East Asia. They experience a wide variety of activities, as well as the Hindu, Muslim and Buddhist cultures. Most learning comes from working alongside nationals and serving the local church. Teams are moved to a different location about every 6 months.
Pray that this resource will be widely used and will stir God's people into action. Pray that lives will be changed through this video, and that it will generate prayer and support for ACT's work in Asia.
