2011 Recipient: Mary James – GBIM internship in France
Mary is a sophomore at Grace College. She is from Ashland Grace Brethren Church and has had previous missions experience in the Dominican Republic and Cambodia. Her pastoral reference letter from Norm Johnson, Mission Pastor, says, “Mary has had a heart for missions that remains to this day.” Mary will be serving at the Chateau de St. Albain in areas of cooking and hospitality. And as we all know how these things go, probably doing lots of other jobs as the need arises because of the increased ministry outreaches of the Chateau.
“I would say that my walk with God has grown a lot this year. I am beginning to grasp that nothing is out of God’s power…I am here to serve God and I feel pulled toward missions. My France trip coming up is the next big step I am taking in missions and I hope that this will show me whether God wants me in missions over seas or not…I am enjoying this renewed relationship I have built with God…In the end he is the only one I need to worry about disappointing.”
