Is God calling you to … grow deeper in faith? … do more for Him with your life? … equip yourself with more ministry skills? … If so, a one year internship with Bring Me Hope may be for you!
Last year, Angela, Sissi, Megan, Calvin, and Aileen spent a year interning with BMH. It was a year well-spent and much more productive than most internships.
Here’s what Angela and Calvin have to say:
“Heading into Senior year, I was wondering if my schedule would allow me to participate in this internship, as it takes commitment and dedication of time and energy. Yet looking back, I am very thankful I did so. It was an enriching experience that opened my eyes to the larger vision of orphan care as well as the practical aspect of nonprofit work. Being able to do hands-on work and take ownership of the ministry, become apart of the Bring Me Hope team, and further what God’s already doing is a priceless opportunity. One of my favorite parts was being assigned a specific child from camp (for me, a 10 yr old boy named Zander) and then learn how to go about advocating for him/her to be adopted.
This internship has given me the chance to step out of my comfort-zone for the benefit of another, and for that I am grateful. I pray you will be open to God’s leading, and will actively participate in this sacred work – caring for the the fatherless – in whatever capacity you can.”
“Being the only intern with a Y chromosome, I was afraid things would be super awkward for me. However, I was totally welcomed into the BMH family. I was super encouraged by the heart my sisters had for God and for orphans. This internship is a commitment, but so worthwhile! It gives you so much insight into a non-profit and grows your heart for the orphan crisis. Moreover, it gives you a way to help tangibly and empowers you not just now but for the future! This is stuff that you won’t learn in college or high school :). Don’t miss out on it! “
Well, we have another great time in store at TD this week as we continue our Rebuild series on re-habituating our lives in Christ. I think you’ll agree that getting back to the ground floor of our lives and beginning the process of re-evaluating our foundations and what our lives have been built on has been eye-opening. And we need to press on …
“I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” Phil. 3:14
– Our message this week is entitled “Recalibrating Our Hearts.” It will be a very important lesson that builds upon our previous lessons. But before we study that, PLEASE REVIEWwhat I shared during our last meeting in February as a proper segue into our new study – “… WITH God.” It’s challenging teaching that we need to master (and it’s only 25 min. 🙂 :
– Aileen will also be sharing this week of a new opportunity for us to regularly serve orphaned children in our area. She’ll also be sharing why she is pursuing the major she is pursuing. What major is she pursuing, you ask? Come to TD and find out! 🙂
