With a dedicated team of staff and volunteers, we were able to pull off the JoJo’s remodel in just 5 days! Our employees are getting the feel for the new layout, and we are excited for the potential this summer holds.

Each week we would like to introduce you to one of our interns! This time we have Matthew Boyer from California!

Why did you apply to become a Makanalani Intern?

I applied because I felt I needed something to help me jump start my faith in God back on track and to grow as a man of God.

What is your favorite thing about the internship so far?

My favorite thing about the internship so far is how accessible and convenient everything is for us. We have cars, we have food, we have a big beautiful house to stay in, I mean what else can you ask for?

What has God been teaching you since you arrived?

Mainly God has been teaching me how to be a man of God and what that means, as well as being able to truly trust in Him with my life.

Where is your favorite spot on the island?

My favorite spot so far has to be the canyon.

What advice would you give to someone who is interested in applying?

My advice would be pray pray pray. Make sure God is telling you to go. I didn’t want to come for the wrong reasons, and I believe God showed me that I wasn’t.
