BAYR INTERN JANEIL MEHRER
Janeil is our first intern here at Broken Arrow! (With hopefully many more to follow). She is a current fourth year student at Nipawin Bible College and joined our team here at Broken Arrow officially at the beginning of September. She comes from a strong Christian heritage in which she’s a third and fourth generation Christian, since she was four. She first heard about Broken Arrow through her church, which supports the ministry. Janeil wanted to come and intern here so she could see what ministry looks like in everyday life and so that she could be a part of helping people heal. Some day, she desires to go into ministry full time to continue serving God.
