Summer 2014 archival intern announced
Winnipeg, Manitoba—Yoshio Fujii is this year’s recipient of the Mennonite Brethren Historical Commission’s archival internship. The selection committee chose Yoshio from a strong field of candidates from various universities and colleges in the US and Canada.
As intern, Yoshio will spend a total of five weeks visiting each of the MB archival centers in North America (Fresno, Hillsboro, Winnipeg, and Abbotsford) during the months of May and June, 2014. In addition to experiencing a functioning archive, he will explore the stories and images housed in these church archives, especially as they relate to the church in Japan.
“We are very pleased to award Yoshio the archival internship. We hope that he will find this an enriching experience and that it will also provide insights for the Commission, as we document and communicate the story of God’s work in our world,” says Don Isaac, chair of the Historical Commission.
Yoshio is a Japanese graduate student completing an MDiv degree in May at Fresno Pacific Biblical Seminary, Fresno, California.
The internship is made possible with support from US and Canadian Mennonite Brethren Churches.
