Brittany teaching students at a HBT partner school

Brittany Hojnowski worked as an intern with Hope Beyond Today to complement her studies at Elim Bible Institute. Throughout the six weeks she spent in India, Brittany helped create, prepare and lead two Bible school activity weeks for children; taught English to students and teachers at an HBT partner school; and attended a crusade that was held in the area. Brittany appreciated the opportunity to not only become entrenched in the local culture and learn about the rich history of India, but also to gain valuable ministry experience. “The…experience was emboldening, and learning…. about… the beautiful children here was an experience I will never forget.”
