Hello, my name is AnElizabeth Henry, I am a Freshman Pre- engineering major at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M. I am very excited to share with you that this summer I have been given the opportunity to intern at Lifesong for Orphans in Zambia, Africa for two months with my Aunt Kristie Cobb who has been serving there for the last two years. While in Zambia, I will be serving in the Lifesong for Orphans School which has around 370 students from Pre-K to the 12th grade. During this summer I will be helping the students in small groups with reading skills and mathematics, as well as helping in the library with reading and check outs. I will be helping tutor the secondary students in subjects they’re struggling in. Through this tutoring I will be helping to strengthen their english skills through conversation. Also during the summer, I will develop relationships with the secondary boarding girls and disciple them, and make them feel loved by not only me but our God. Outside the school, I will also be helping with the short-term mission trips that come and go throughout the summer.
As you can see I will be very busy this summer but I am so excited to serve the Lord and to see what he has planned for Zambia. As you can imagine trips like this come with a cost. I am needing to raise $4,000 this covers my plane ticket, groceries, and any living expenses for my two months of being overseas. I ask that you can pray about helping support me financially in any way possible. I also ask that you can pray for me and the other interns as we travel across the world to help allow us to be successful as we follow God’s leading in Lifesong for Orphans ministry. Below is more information on how to donate towards my internship.
Thank you all for supporting me through this amazing opportunity and thank you in advance to everyone for keeping me in your prays and donations. Can’t wait to share my amazing adventure with you all
