Introducing Brenda: SEND Food Services Assistant

By Lydia Gingerich

Over the next few weeks we will be introducing our 2018 SEND Interns. This group of seven REACH graduates will spend the year deepening their relationship to God and his Kingdom through serving at the RIC and being discipled by the SEND Department. RMM is grateful for their hard work and is excited to see them grow this year.


Brenda Miller, the 2018 food services assistant from Sugarcreek, Ohio, is excited to learn about meal preparation and planning as she helps the RIC food services manager, Susannah Cotman.

In 2016-17 Brenda was on REACH Team Ecuador. She and her team volunteered at the Shekinah Foundation – providing care for at-risk children “Unexpectedly, Ecuador wasn’t like missionary life, it was just life. So the same principles of love and service apply to being at home.”and adolescents. Her time in Ecuador fostered a love of Spanish-speaking countries and cultures and she hopes to work in that environment in the future.

After returning from her time in Ecuador last year, Brenda began to see her life in the United States in a new light. “Unexpectedly, Ecuador wasn’t like missionary life, it was just life. So the same principles of love and service apply to being at home.” She hopes to learn more about how to put that into practice this year.

Please pray for Brenda and all of the 2018 interns as they love and serve this year.
