Dear family and friends,

The past 150 years have proven just how very important anthropology−the study of human cultures−is for missionaries as they search for “gateways” to communicate the message of Christ. Wheaton College requires that we anthropology majors put theory into practice through a summer cross-cultural internship.

For many years, Asians have had a special place in my heart. It just so happens that a family who have ministered for 15 years in China have moved to the country of my childhood−Brazil! This husband and wife team has been tasked with mobilizing Christians to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to Asians who have left their homelands to live and work around the world. Under their guidance, my internship will focus on identifying Asian communities−Chinese, Japanese and Korean−scattered throughout the beautiful city of Rio de Janeiro, building relationships, and together with this missionary couple, strategizing on how to mobilize world Christians to reach these Asians with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The cost of my summer internship is $3,000. Because both my brother Andrew and I are doing our internships this summer, my family is asking those who would feel so led to help me financially with this phase of my missionary preparation. Please consider making a donation through the FundRazr site.

I would also appreciate your prayers as I seek God’s will for my future. I am at a point in life where the “future” is becoming the “now,” and I am facing decisions which will affect the rest of my life. Whether or not you feel that God is leading you to help financially, thank you for taking the time to read this letter and for your prayers.

God bless you and yours,
Victoria Ellis
