Students Work with Restoration Ministries During Interim

While many students were traveling, exploring, and serving overseas during the two-week Interim program, others stayed closer to home, enrolled in courses on campus. Some of those courses involved not only learning about others but also serving them.

Students taking the Restoration Ministries Interim lived in the organization’s Tabitha House for women during the two-week period and spent many hours serving the needy in Harvey and South Holland, Illinois. Trinity has enjoyed a long-standing partnership with the organization, whose mission is to bring the love of Jesus Christ into the lives of recovering drug-addicts, ex-criminals, lonely seniors, at-risk youth, and families in need.

Dr. Mary Lynn Colosimo, associate professor of psychology, works with the organization’s Tabitha House for women and led students in their service work. That work involved sorting donated clothing at the thrift store, sharing testimonies with youth groups, visiting nursing home residents, and tutoring children after school.

“This Interim has been amazing,” said Colosimo, who leads the course each year. “I love my role as a catalyst as I watch the students change during their Interim experience. They will never be the same again.”

Said one student: “There are no words to describe my experience these past two weeks. I have grown so much. I met many amazing people and learned many lessons.”
