"Student teaching with NICS is easily one of the most rewarding and growing experiences I’ve encountered in my life. I have never been stretched as I was in my 7 weeks at AIS in Ghana. The staff and children became my light and hope in the midst of the difficultly that came from cultural transition from the states to Ghanaian life. I found joy in the midst of discomfort through the love that was evident in every interaction that I encountered. The warmth of Ghana goes deeper than the sun that shines closely on your skin— there is great warmth in the hearts of those in staff, students, and locals. I will forever be grateful to Jesus for bringing me to a school and organization that brought me a more intimate relationship with Him than I could have ever imagined possible. Through the challenges of transition, I learned an entirely new meaning of the word surrender. Thank you NICS for an opportunity that continues to pour into my life even today."
