Dearest Potential Intern,

We are so excited about your interest in an internship with Expressions of Emmanuel. We are happy to offer most internships during the summer; although we have the potential to schedule an internship during the Spring or Fall. The summer internship will typically extend from June until August. Please contact us if you have any circumstances that require a different schedule, we may or may not have flexibility. We are praying for God to raise up a team to mightily serve the Lord. Come prepared to serve in the mission office, with the Deaf community, and possibly learn and help with editing bible lessons and Christian songs in sign language. Please indicate the area of Deaf mission work that is your preferred focus. We will seek to accommodate you as much as possible. We will offer weekly sign classes implementing videos at times and live classes at others. We need to make housing arrangements so please let us know your plans as soon as possible.

If you are a college student that would like credit for this internship, you will need to inform us of your college internship requirements. We also need a reference from a minister or bible college professor and two others not related to you. We need your medical information in case of an emergency. Please let us know of your hobbies, interests, and special skills. We want this internship to be a glorious time of serving the Lord joyfully together.

Please note that we do not have funds to make this a paid internship. You could raise your own mission support to help with your living expenses and college tuition. We would be happy to give you input about how to raise support. Our goal is to offer you housing and food. We live in an old two story “fixer upper” that also houses our mission office, editing suite, and prop room. Please let us know of any food allergies.

DeafNation World Expo held in Las Vegas, Nevada.
July 5th thru 8th, 2016 Expressions of Emmanuel plans to have a booth at the DeafNation World Expo held in Las Vegas, Nevada. There are expected to be 50,000 in attendance. With such a large gathering we will need 25 – 30 team volunteers to serve at our booth. Our team will help set up our booth on the 5th. On event days, the 6th, the 7th, and the 8th, our team will give free tracts and one free DVD of their choice for each family. We want to be available to encourage the people who stop by our booth. We want to be ready to share the gospel and explain the picture tracts to each person if they are open to learn. Members of our team will enter email addresses in to computers so that we can provide follow-up discipleship materials through emails to those who want to sign up for our newsletter.

All team members need to be committed Christians who heartily believe and follow God’s word, the Bible. Half of the team will need to be Deaf, Hard of Hearing, or Hearing who sign fluently.

The other half of the team could be people who have learned (or we will teach) basic sign language to use while giving away items or signing people up for newsletters at the booth. But every member must totally refrain from talking while at the booth in order to make our booth a Deaf-friendly and respectful atmosphere for the Deaf.

In order to get the early bird special for a DeafNation World booth, we have to pay for the booth before February 1, 2016. We must have 12 committed volunteers to join us in order for us to proceed with the booth reservation. Our goal is to have 25 – 30 volunteers. But to be good stewards, we need 12 people to commit by January 30, 2016 so that we can secure our booth at an affordable price.

DeafNation World Expo events will be held July 6th – 8th. We need our team to be there in time to set on the 5th. (Set up time to be announced.) But we encourage our volunteers to come on the 4th so that we have time as a team to prepare and pray, as well as set up and possibly enjoy some fireworks together.

Will you prayerfully consider joining our team for this DeafNation World Expo conference? You will need to provide for your transportation, meals, and hotel expenses for this event held in Las Vegas. Perhaps you can write a mission support letter and raise the funds to come and help us. People could share hotel costs. DeafNation World Expo will be held at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel and has a special rate of $142 for each night (for either one king sized bed or two queen sized beds). We can help match you up with others to share a hotel room and share hotel expenses. We desperately need your help. We want 25 – 30 workers to join us. But we must have 12 by January 30, 2016.

Please see our resumes on the “About Us” page of this website to know some of the experience that we have to share with you! You will be a blessing too, as we desperately need help to share the gospel of Christ with the Deaf. If you are interested in a Spring or Fall internship please let us know. If you already have editing talents and you want to help us from a remote location we would appreciate your volunteer work with that. Please contact Steve if you want to help in that way.

We love you! We pray that God will lead you! We would love to have you!

Love in Jesus,
Steve and Vonda Hamilton
