Envision Internship- Allens Mission to El Salvador
Start: Oct 29, 2018 - End: Jan 31, 2019
So I have some super-awesome exciting news! This summer I am going to be living in El Salvador for three months as an intern for Envision. Envision is a Christian missions organization dedicated to developing missional leaders to establish and strengthen communities of faith. During my time in El Salvador, I will be working with an after school program called La Fuente in Colonia Dolores, a neighborhood with a major gang presence. This program helps kids in grades 6-9 have a safe place to hang out, hear the truth about who Christ is, and take classes that will provide them with useful life skills such as, English, cooking, computer, wood working and math.
Since I started college, I have been drawn to learn the Spanish language and have been actively pursuing it, attaching a Spanish minor to my future degree in Film. With this sudden inspiration, I began looking for opportunities to go abroad and expand my knowledge in the language. Little did I know that God would use this opportunity to send me on a mission for Him. Eventually, I stumbled upon this opportunity and I realized I can use my passions to do great things for the glory of God, rather than myself, calling me to be a witness to His love for us. 1 Corinthians 13:1 says, “If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.”. Ever since I read this verse I realized it could not be more applicable to my desire to learn Spanish. No matter what languages I speak, if I am not using my voice to love others and ultimately show Christ’s love for them, I have no purpose in knowing those languages. I believe God is calling me to this mission to further spread His truth and love in this community of El Salvador.
The total cost of the trip is going to be $5000 dollars! I set a goal to reach $1250 on this platform. I can’t reach this amount on my own and definitely need your help! All of you are the backbone to the mission and are the friends and family that can make this possible. El Salvador is a dangerous country with one of the highest murder rates in the world, but this doesn’t mean Gods word should not be present there, and I need you guys to help bring me there so I can carry out my call to the great commission!
