Dear friends and family,
I am excited to share with you what God is doing in my life this Summer. I am going to continue to serve in the preschool classrooms at my local church, Sunridge. Also at Sunridge, I will be serving at this year’s Vacation Bible School as a CREW LEADER! And finally, God has placed a calling on me to work as a paid Summer Intern with Every Generation Ministries (EGM) as the Leadership Development Intern. I am excited about this opportunity because I love EGM and their work with children and churches around the world. It is also a good experience to see if I want to work in ministry. I’m thankful for the opportunity to work with Krysten Norkaitis. She is the Leadership Developer who helps EGM develop children's ministry leaders in 15 countries so that kids around the world can be taught the Bible in a way they can understand and learn from. This includes me helping EGM to launch a special needs program that will help us minister to kids with special needs more efficiently and includes me working to evaluate the spiritual growth of over 900 kids from Latin America. 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 for me as I enter my first year of high school.
● Please pray that God provides the funds needed in order to participate in my internship. I need to raise $918.00. The first half of my fundraising ($459.00) is due by 6/18/19.
● Please pray for all the interns at EGM this summer and that we are able to do everything we need to be successful this summer.

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.
