2021 Interns

Mission Indy has taught me the true value of relationships. As a child that has moved most of their life, I always found most relationships to be short term and fleeting. It wasn’t until this summer that I realized that although they are no longer physically there in your life, the impact they had on you is lasting. This same thing goes the other way, you have more of an impact on others than you initially realize. Relationships are what build connections, without the initial relationship with someone you cannot expect to create an impact in their life. Whether this impact be minor or major, no change can happen without a true foundation. Mission Indy values relationships without others, focusing not only on the physical needs of others, but also the emotional ones they may need. Engaging in conversation and building these relationships with the individuals we were helping were some of the most rewarding aspects of this summer for me.  - Morgan Houchins

    I am a native of Indianapolis. I am a rising sophomore at Purdue University dual-majoring in Brain & Behavioral Sciences and Applied Statistics with a Spanish Minor. I hope to use my education to help people overcome addictions to technology. In my free time, you can find me curled up with a good book (usually fiction), working with power tools (yay!), or somewhere outdoors (hiking, camping, or skiing). I also enjoy playing volleyball and swing dancing with my friends from Cru. I look forward to seeing what God will do through my internship at Mission Indy this summer and the many adventures that await!

    Hello, I attend Ball State University and a sophomore. I am majoring in pre-medicine and biology with minors in chemistry and ASL. The ASL I will be starting in the fall. For fun I like hiking, kickboxing, cooking and baking (especially baking...I can make a mean cheesecake), ham mocking, long boarding, and just being with friends. My dad was in the air force until I was 16...so I've lived in 7 places. The coolest being Germany; and because of this I love to travel and I have a dream of owning a VW bus one day to travel in since that's my dream car.

    I am a Junior at Purdue University. I am studying Human Services in the Department of Human Development and Family Studies, and I am in the Air Force ROTC program. After college, I plan to be a pilot in the Air Force and eventually work in the mission field as a pilot after I retire from the military. Being the youngest of a large family gave me a very competitive spirit and  taught me how to work hard for my accomplishments at a young age.  I enjoy games, hiking, being active, and photography. I am incredibly excited to be working with Mission Indy this summer, and I know I will have hundreds of opportunities to grow and positively impact something greater than myself!
