I am an intern with the Church Relations Office of World Renew at the Grand Rapids, USA office. I grew up in Byron Center, Michigan and am currently a junior at Grove City College in Grove City, Pennsylvania (North of Pittsburgh) majoring in English and Communications. I became interested in development work through the Foods Resource Bank in Byron Center, Michigan and my home church, Friendship CRC. I have had the opportunity to learn more about community development through travelling with FRB, World Renew, and other organizations. I'm hoping to pursue a career at a nonprofit working towards justice and poverty alleviation after graduating in 2016.
Kim--Thanks for your comment and pointing out 2 Cor. 12:9--love that verse! So encouraging for us when we face discomfort.viewposted on: The Poison of Comfort
Aaron--Thanks so much for your thoughts! I'm not sure that I quite understand your comment though--do you mean to say that the effort is there we just aren't doing things effectively?viewposted on: The Importance of Young People
