In Africa this summer, Samuel is assisting missionaries with camps, Bible studies, outreach, and discipleship. Pray for the last month of his internship.
For Elementary Education ministry majors, their student teaching experience in a Christian school means putting all their preparation into practice. Sometimes it also means learning from young children! Here's a memory from Allison, 2022 graduate.
"Halfway through my student teaching capstone, one of my students fell very ill. This was very unexpected and impacted the class.
"Through this trial, it was really sweet to watch my students be persistent in prayer for their loved classmate. We prayed specifically each day that God would give this student feeling back in his fingers and wrist.
“One school day, we received a text from his mom informing us that this child was able to wiggle his fingers and lift his right wrist. I vividly remember our class rejoicing together singing, 'My God is so big, so strong and so mighty. There is nothing my God cannot do!' May we always have childlike faith."

Then Dr. and Mrs. Anderson personally delivered the gift all the way to Florida. Mrs. Lila Williams is a great example of lifelong faithfulness. Happy birthday, Lila! 🥳
