Meet the Interns!

WOW!  Can you believe that it’s Summer!!!???  Most of of our teens will be out of school in the next week or so!  As usual, we are gearing up for a busy summer!  To help us out this summer we have two interns.

HannaHanna Rozell ( will be a junior at Harding next fall and is a Child Life and Pre-Occupational Therapy major.  She comes to us from Flower Mound, TX (Dallas area).  Hanna loved being involved in her youth group and grew up going to Camp Wyldewood in Searcy.  Hanna’s energy and enthusiasm as well as her love for Christ and desire to serve teens will be a refreshing boost to all that goes on this summer.

543511_10151143063369256_1170574068_nDane Roper ( is no stranger at Lafayette!  Of course Dane grew up here and served as Student Intern last year.  Dane brings creativity and a zeal for God’s Word to his work here.  He will be a junior Bible and Journalism major at Harding next semester and is planning on going to Greece to study at HU’s campus.

Dane and Hanna will primarily be working with the Middle School this summer.  However, they will be around for everyone to enjoy through mid-August.

Please make a point of introducing yourself – even if you don’t have a teen!  I would like to thank Herb and Kathy Crown for volunteering to host Hanna for the summer!  If you would like to help out by hosting her (and/or Dane) for meal or two this summer, please contact them personally or see Mike.
