Over the next 9 weeks Refuge KC will be hosting a group of 6 interns serving the needs of our New-American neighbors and helping in various ways around the office of RKC while also getting cross-cultural training by some experienced practitioners. Our Summer 2023 Interns are: Maddy Karst, Luke Ringer, Riley Woodson, Clayton Gonyo, Elaina Schumacher, and Bianca Oralus.
Luke's Motivation for interning with Refuge KC:
Missions runs deep in Luke's family. Luke's grandparents served as missionaries in Thailand while he was raised in Vietnam and then in Thailand.
Maddy's Motivation for interning with Refuge KC:
Missions are my passion, I love sharing the gospel with people, especially people from other cultures. Going overseas isn't an option right now, but I would love to learn and grow in working with people from other places and this seems like the perfect opportunity. I also had a close friend who did this internship last summer (Eliora Payne) and she has highly recommended it to me.
