My team has been fantastic!! It’s been such a joy to serve with all of them! Allow me to introduce them to you!
L-R: Sarah, Brad, Annie, Josh, Brianne
Brad is studying at IVCC in Illinois and plans on pursuing becoming a philosophy professor and civil engineer in the future. He has a great mind and thinks a lot, which is a great asset to our team. I’ve known him for a long time, as we go to the same church in Ottawa: Illinois Valley Evangelical Free Church. He has been to Czech four times before, working with Hradec Kralove. This summer is his first internship, and it’s been a great joy working with him so far.
Annie is from Pennsylvania and goes to Messiah University. She is studying Athletic training and loves sports. She has an energetic spirit and has an eye for details. All of this has been so essential to our team dynamics! Annie worked with the Frydlant English Camp last summer and is back for the internship this summer! It’s been cool to have her experience and insight as well as her fun personality on the team.
Josh is my co-leader and has been amazing to lead with! He is from Hawaii and graduated from Moody Bible Institute a few years ago. He is currently on JV staff and raising support to move to Czech as a full time missionary. He has led teams for several years, and this is his fifth summer in Czech. He has a great gift of teaching and does a great job leading everyone. I’m thankful for the opportunity to learn from such an experienced yet humble leader as I lead with him.
Brianne is from Colorado but goes to school at Huntington in Indiana where she is studying Theology and Religion. She is very energetic and relationships focused. She has been super encouraging and supportive to everyone and really has a servant’s heart. This is her first time in the Czech Republic, and has had a great and willing spirit as she goes into situations she’s never been in before. It’s been great to get to know her and to have her on the team.
