OFM exists to help tell stories of what God is doing through AIM missionaries across Africa. A lot of missionaries—gifted as they are—struggle when it comes time to go home and raise support, to tell their stories, to generate interest, prayers and giving. OFM does a superb job of helping them make professional videos, print pieces, webisodes and more. Our team spent a few hours with Andy, learning the history of OFM (it’s not a very long history), learning what they do and how they do it, and what the opportunities are (there’s a lot of opportunities!).
One of the exciting ideas that came out of our time together is a way to be mutually beneficial to each other. OFM needs interns. Dordt’s Digital Media major needs great places to send interns. The more we talked, the more excited we all got about summer interns from Dordt living and working in Nairobi, and even pursuing a semester abroad—working with OFM.
We’ll see where it all goes, but in the meantime, the thirteen of us had our horizons expanded and students have yet another career option to consider.
