Team of the Week: Mountain Farm Intern

Job description: Living in a highly restricted area of the Golden Triangle, you will work alongside a group of former head-hunters to engage unreached peoples through agriculture & community development projects. Base out of a sustainable farm community, spending days doing farm chores & other days helping with village extension projects & outreach events in local village communities. Through these events you will help to share the Gospel with unreached peoples while encouraging the national believers working in this region. Absolute necessities are a willingness to work hard everyday, a love for interacting with people (even if they don't speak your language), & the ability to live in rustic conditions without complaining. The language barrier will be significant. But if you work hard to show people how much you care for them, you will have a fulfilling & fruitful experience among those who've never heard the Gospel before!

*Prefer students with agriculture background/experience but this is not required.
