We really enjoy hosting interns.

For one, our kids love having them around. It is awesome for my kids get to see young adults on fire for the Lord and missions.

Second, Jeff and I really enjoying showing what missions is all about. We enjoy the mentor role and we’ve made great friends out of it.

Interns are a blessing to their Paraguayan host families. You’d be amazed at how much can be conveying through hand motions, limited Spanish/Guarani, and a smile. Friendships are made and tears are shed when it is time to part. The Paraguayan families are always so thankful and humbled that we’d entrust our friends into their care.

Be praying for our most recent interns, Courtney (public health) and Joel (med school). A trip like this is life changing.

Also, please be praying as we prepare for our next interns in May (there will be 6 coming as part of the TIME program).

Shadowing Jeff in the clinic each morning, learning what rural medicine looks like

Living with Paraguayan host families, learning about the culture, eating Paraguayan food

Visiting people in the community and attending bible studies.

And, you get to hang out and be mentored by a really cool family.

If you have a desire to do an internship here in rural Paraguay, drop us a note. We’d love to have you!
