Akarin’s monthly report Feburary
The final class for 3rd year students is done, presentations of research report are over, and I’m immersed in the final papers. I’m at the peak of happiness with nice weather and delicious food.
Last month, I discussed recent developments in the university’s research on “hands-on” project-based learning. I’ve successfully completed my presentation on campus and my internship at JCFN. Thank you for your prayers.
I learned a lot during my one-year internship at JCFN and my research on the theme of returnees and scope of the research, and I was able to present my findings of my research. If you asked me if it was difficult, I’d say the opposite. I’m a returnee Christian, and through fellowship with other returnee Christians, I made significant realizations and gained new perspectives.
My study didn’t have the same conclusion. It’s because I came to realize that I’d want to continue to think about returnee Christians in the future, rather than ending with this short period internship or research project.
I’m really looking forward to meeting and fellowshipping at JCFN events and with other returnee Christians as a continuation of my research, and I pray that the Lord will help me to enjoy, study, and pray about the rest of my internship, praying to the Lord.
Akarin’s monthly report January
The year 2023 has begun and before I knew it, it’s already the end of the month. Sorry for the delay in posting (-_-;)
This month I’d like to talk about my recent situation.
I’ve been interning at JCFN since last June and. My internship is connected with a university research project called “Project-Based Leaning,” in which students explore and learn independently.
Through my work at JCFN and fellowship with returnee Christians so far, I’ve also found a theme that I’d like to explore; “Returnee Christian’s Journey After Returning Home”. As I surveyed and talked with returnee Christians from various backgrounds, new issues emerged, and I was often received hope and encouragement.
When I wrote my report, I didn’t just finish it, but I reflected on the events and fellowship during my internship, which was a very grace-filled experience, and I felt very grateful.
A Bible passage I thought of in this time was,
“Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ” Ephesians 4:15 ESV
There is no final conclusion to this research project, but the intent is not to be finished with the knowledge and experience gained through my research, but to continue to look into the issues faced, while also being involved with Christian returnees in the future.
In February, I’ll submit my final copy of my report and present my research in a presentation.
Please continue to pray for me.
