At MLW, we know that it is a big decision as well as a large sacrifice to come to Wales and give a year of your life to serve God and people through our internship.
You are our first priority as an organization, and we will do everything we can to look after you and have a strong support network around you during your year with us. Our desire is for this to truly be a life changing year for you!
To ensure this happens, you will be assigned a personal mentor, who will be a more mature Christian from the church you are serving in, and who will make you their number one priority.
They will help you reflect on your learning and experiences, they will ensure you’re doing ok in all areas of your life, and they’ll take you out for a coffee or a ‘cuppa’ (tea!) when you just need a break!
We hope that you will develop a close relationship with your mentor, and that you will learn from one another as you share your lives and experiences.
Being mentored can be challenging, but we expect it to be a very valuable experience during your internship, and we hope that as a result you will leave MLW understanding more about yourself and God’s plans for you.
You will also have regular staff and team meetings with MLW, attend a small group in your placement church, and have individual weekly line management meetings as well as reviews to ensure any problems you might have are swiftly dealt with. With all of this structure and people placed around you to support you, you will be well taken care of as you grow.
