"I'm most thankful for the relationships I made with my fellow interns and the relationships with the South Sudanese. Especially with Peter and Marco, and all the travels and times I spent with them. Something that God revealed to me during my internship was that even when we feel truly alone and without others to speak to, we are never alone, because He is with us.” Tonj, Summer 2016
“I am so grateful for the opportunity to develop relationships with women, children, and men around the world. I truly feel like the Lord blessed every step I took and every word I spoke. I also feel like I learned to be more mindful of where my money is going and who I am helping. I desire to seek God's direction for blessing those around me as He would have me to do.” Tonj, Summer 2016
“I learned so much about honor during my internship. I learned what it truly means to love another culture and what it truly means to honor its people. I think when your perspective has been broadened and your eyes now see things differently – everything essentially changes. The way you see the world is now different and therefore your thoughts, motivations, and the things that inspire you may be a bit different than before. I'm still the same me; I just now love South Sudan and the mission of Every Village.” Tonj, Summer 2016
