Summer provides splendid opportunities to
practice some of the theory learned in classes,
whether at home or on the mission field. Last sum-
mer, 21 Grace representatives shook the home-
town dirt off their shoes and headed toward a
world outside their own cultural, linguistic andfor
national barriers. The interns covered the whole
scope of the globe, from Irian Jaya to Panama, from
Alaska to Guam. Besides observing a totally new
environment, most of these students felt the strain
of not being able to communicate with the national
people and trying to adapt to another level or class
of society. Others, such as those majoring in Chris-
tian Education, Pastoral Ministries and Radio Com-
munications worked on their internships here in
the states. The work commissioned to the students
included painting, construction, Summer Bible
Schools, office work, evangelism, preaching,
broadcasting, and more.

When questioned as to how she viewed
missionaries, Mary Patterson, a missions
intern in Irian Jaya, Indonesia, stated,
"They're hard workers. They have to
have ingenuity to be able to make things
work that ordinarily don't work." Kim
Kroeker, a summer worker in Mali, West
Africa, gives this advice, "Go prepared,
but expect to be unprepared. "

citing weeks to various camps and
churches in Iowa, Wisconsin,
Minnesota, and Colorado. They

Kim Duerksen, "You just kind of

In commenting on her exper-
ience last summer, Kim went on
to say, "I think I learned the im-
portance of service because it was
a summer of putting my life into
peopIe's. It was a sacrifice, but
there were a lot of rewards
f through that. It was exciting to
see how the Lord worked through
Also ministering through music during
the summer, and continuing through this
school year, was the Living Truth quar-

through July, they too traveled to differ-

Besides sharing their music at the camps,
they were also involved in counseling,
teaching classes, and various other jobs.
At one camp, they even helped with
According to Duane Um-uh, the sum-

member of the group. They learned lead-

cause of the summer. We had to trust in
Him for everything. "
