Hi there! Greetings from the Project 52 North Carolina Team. This year myself and three other students have been blessed with the opportunity to serve God through working with Karenni refugees and the Hispanic population in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Let me introduce you to them!
Justin is one of the leaders of our group and this will be his 3rd year serving with Nehemiah Teams. Throughout the summer he will be working mainly in the Hispanic population in Winston-Salem as well as teaching a men's bible study. He recently graduated with a degree in Special Education from Jacksonville State University. He definitely has a heart for the Lord and loves to teach, but also knows how to have a good time and make us laugh!
This lovely lady is Breanna and she is the other team leader for our group. She will be leading the outreach in the Karenni refugee population. She is currently a student at Mississippi College studying Public Relations and Bible. She has done mission work for years but this is her first time working with Nehemiah Teams. She is the organization of our group and the one to always encourage and uplift our spirits. She is the first one to pray with us, and be a hug when we need one.
Oh Jillian. The fun and energetic goof ball of the group. Jillian is from Mississippi and attends Ole Miss (University of Mississippi) where she is studying Hospitality Management. She hopes to be a baker one day! She is the quirky one of the group that snorts when she laughs and even generates random facts to share with us every day! She will be helping Justin in the Hispanic Ministry while in Winston-Salem.
And to round out our team, yep, it's me! My name is Brianna Blue. I am from Alabama and attend the University of West Alabama where I am studying English Education. I will be the media person for our team this summer, and hopefully will keep you all up to date with pictures, video, and blogs about our work!
Please keep us in your prayers as we head into our first week with the Karenni and Hispanic people groups here in North Carolina! Pray that we will be effective in sharing the love and truth of the Gospel here in Winston-Salem. Thank you so much!
