Introducing Sarah: SEND Hospitality 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.


Sarah is from Millersburg, Ohio, and was on the REACH 2016-17 Team Eurasia. She is one of the hospitality assistants with duties like making beds, cleaning bathrooms, and hosting groups who come to the RIC. When Sarah is not working, she likes to take naps, read, or journal. In her few weeks at the RIC, Sarah has enjoyed getting to know the other interns during their late-night chats over cereal.

“I don't think I realized how powerful that prayer was at the time, but even to this day God is showing me how big his love is...” Back at home, Sarah spent time volunteering at the safe house run by her church. This involvement hatched a passion in Sarah to work with women and children who have come out of abusive relationships, and she hopes to do this in some capacity after her time as an intern.

The past year of Sarah’s life has been a lesson in love. While in Eurasia, Sarah prayed that God would show her the immensity of his love. “I don't think I realized how powerful that prayer was at the time, but even to this day God is showing me how big his love is – not only for me but for those around me.” Sarah is excited to keep learning this lesson as an intern, and for the rest of her life.
