I am excited to share with you what God is doing in my life this Summer, which means it is jam packed!! I will be going to Mexico with my school for two days, participating in my church’s VBS, a week at a medical camp at Georgetown university, a week in LA doing a city service project with my school as well, and finally, God has called me to work as a paid Summer Intern with Every Generation Ministries (EGM) as Church Mobilization Coordinator. I am excited about this opportunity because it is an opportunity to have experience in ministry and see if this is a path I would like to take in the future. As I am getting older and I am about to head off into adulthood (scary!!), I realized that I need to start thinking about what I am going to do with my time while I am attending college. With this experience, I can decide whether or not I want to spend my time doing more jobs like this one. In this job I will be working with EGM’s Mobilization Coordinator to connect churches in the United States with churches doing ministry in the 15 countries where EGM serves. This includes planning short term ministry trips, volunteer opportunities, and church outreach events. This is a missionary position which means I will be raising financial support.
Every Generation Ministries believes every child can experience the transformed life Jesus intends for them. EGM helps churches around the world disciple children using five principles found in Deuteronomy 6. Blending relationships and real life experiences with discussion surrounding biblical truth, the ministry is successful when children respond to God’s Word in their daily lives. EGM currently works in 15 countries, where they establish locally-led
ministries that are directed, staffed and funded by Christian from within each country.
I’m so thankful I get to be a part of what God is doing in the lives of children through His church this Summer. As EGM partners with churches around the world, I am asking you to partner with me. Will you lift up my following prayers request? Please pray:
- that God provides the funds needed in order to participate in my internship. I need to raise $968.00.
- that God gives me wisdom and helps me decide what I am going to do with my senior year and after
- for protection in my traveling
If, while you’re praying for me, the Lord leads you to give a financial gift please fill out and mail back the response card with your check made payable to EGM using the enclosed envelope. If you provide your email address, you will receive my mid-Summer newsletter to hear about what God is doing through my work and get updated prayer requests and praise reports.
It is a blessing to be able to join God in the work that He is doing around the world and to share
it with you. I thank God for your presence in my life.
“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, who confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when the heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”
