This summer (2022), we have the incredible opportunity to intern with Springwells Church in Dearborn, Michigan. I (Autumn) had planned on interning with them last summer and started the process of pursuing that opportunity. However, under the counsel of my professors, I decided to postpone the internship until this summer. Phoenix and I are now ready and excited to pursue this opportunity together. This internship is the last requirement I have to fulfill to officially get my bachelor's degree in Intercultural Studies from Northcentral University.
During the internship, our focus will be on participating in the various ministries of the church, learning language, experiencing culture, and building relationships with the people who live there. Dearborn is comprised of mostly Muslim/Arabic people and is home to the largest Mosque in North America. Our hope is to create relationships with these people and share the truth and love of Jesus with them. Recently, we traveled to Dearborn with a team from Trinity Bible College (Phoenix's school). This week-long, incredible experience provided wonderful insight into what we will be doing this summer.
We will be in Dearborn from June 4th to July 31st. In total, the trip will cost $2,400. Thanks to generous giving last year, we are almost 50% funded (which is why the goal on here is less)! We are asking and trusting that the Lord will provide the rest of the funds we need. Would you please prayerfully consider financially partnering with us in this opportunity?
Thank you for your consideration, time, and prayers. We truly appreciate it!
Autumn and Phoenix
