I love seeing the fresh, happy faces of our summer interns as I wheel through the IDC – so meet Victoria (in the beige shirt) and Mary Clark (in white). Both girls just finished their first and second year at Mississippi State University (flying to California right after finals). Victoria is a Special Education major and, among other responsibilities, is helping us organize and execute our West Coast Disability Summit May 18-19. Mary Clark wants to become an occupational therapist – she's learning about disability ministry worldwide, as well as partnership strategies with a focus on our work in Jordan. These young women represent the new face of disability ministry and I absolutely love their passion for Jesus Christ. (By the way, this week Ken and I arrive home from Chuck Colson's memorial service at the Washington National Cathedral… we'll head right for our West Coast Disability Summit. So thank you for praying for fresh energy)!

Victoria and Mary Clark, We in Mississippi are so proud of the honor that you have been given this summer. My family will pray that you both will learn, grow, be humbled and glorify God in whole new ways! Keep up the good work and bring some of that knowledge back to us!

Victoria and Mary, "He who trusts in his riches will fall, But the righteous will flourish like the green leaf." Proverbs 11:28 May God richly bless you both as you desire to sow for the Kingdom and not for the riches of this world. May many lives be encourged by your love

Victoria and Mary, I pray you have a wonderful summer internship working with Joni. I am sure you will be blessed learning from her. As a parent of a special needs child (who passed away), I thank you for your desire to help those who often cannot express their thanks themselves! God bless you both, Pat Schuessler
