Developing Leaders through our Summer Internship

Written by Hannah Johnson, Bhutanese High School Ministry Coordinator

This Summer we are excited to invest in the lives of three young leaders in a unique way. Three teenagers from our Mission Adelante community will be participating in our summer internship. We look forward to getting to invest in the lives of Annie, Laxmi, and Oscar in a more intentional way this summer.  These three young people are already leaders in many ways here in our community, and we cannot wait to see how God will use their talents and leadership skills to help them develop into better leaders as we learn and serve together.

Throughout the Summer, interns will develop a habit of personal devotion and hearing from the Lord through the Bible.  They will plan and run activities for children in our neighborhood, volunteer in weekly programs at Mission Adelante, visit various churches to learn about worship in various cultural contexts. At times it will be challenging for them, but we pray that it will be a very valuable summer for them as well.  We want the primary fruit of our ministry at Mission Adelante to be individuals reaching their potential as disciple makers and leaders in our community. The internship has been a great tool in the past to help us develop that fruit. We have loved watching the program grow and challenge young men and women in past summers, and look forward to how God will use it this Summer as well.

Will you pray for us and for these interns as the internship approaches? Pray that we would steward this summer well, and that these young people would experience Jesus in some new and amazing we serve, share life and share Jesus together.
