Jordan Thomson

Year-Long Missionary Intern

Meet our year-long intern Jordan! He recently joined the camp crew in mid August. This past, 2019, camp season was his first year at camp. He was invited to volunteer at camp by a friend who signed him up for camp. After his first week of camp it was clear to him that God was working in his life and he chose to come back for a second  week of camp. At the end of his second week of camp, he committed to serving as a Year-long Intern. As an intern, Jordan will be living with the residents of the Hartley House as well as four other guy year-long interns. A large part of his work will be to finish the construction of Camp Daniel’s new grounds. As an intern he is also involved with Special Olympics, The Hub Student Ministry and The Able Church. While doing all of these jobs he is learning about non-profit work, disability, leadership and what it mean to be a missionary to a subculture.

The missionary aspect of being a year-long intern is a large part of an intern’s experience and growth during their year. All the staff at Camp Daniel are full time missionaries to people with disabilities, and like most missionaries, Jordan will need to raise $600 in monthly financial support to pay rent, food, transportation, and other living expenses. He asks for your financial support, whether it be $10, $20, $50, or $100 a month.
