East Africa Internship

Image title

The East Africa internship will offer the opportunity to engage in one of the most vital ministries within the field of Bible translation –Scripture Impact.  This is an ideal internship for someone interested in discipleship making movements.  It will also provide the chance to observe Bible translation firsthand to see how the two things go hand in hand.

Some of the highlights from previous internships to this field include participating in Discovery Bible Study, staying overnight in a nearby village, showing the Jesus film and hands on discipleship through Scripture distribution. In contrast to some of the other internships, you will spend the majority of the summer in a more developed city, taking time to visit a couple of remote areas for shorter periods of time. You’ll be blessed by the opportunity to live and experience life with different missionary families.
