Fresno Pacific Biblical Seminary student will spend 5 weeks at archives
Historical Commission press release
Yoshio Fujii is this year’s recipient of the Mennonite Brethren Historical Commission’s archival internship. The selection committee chose Fujii, a Japanese graduate student completing a master’s of divinity degree in May at Fresno Pacific Biblical Seminary, Fresno, Calif., from a strong field of candidates from various universities and colleges in the United States and Canada.
As intern, Fujii will spend a total of five weeks in May and June visiting each of the four MB archival centers in North America—Fresno, Calif., Hillsboro, Kan., Winnipeg, Man., and Abbotsford, B.C 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,” says Don Isaac, chair of the Historical Commission. “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.”
The internship is made possible with support from U.S. and Canadian Mennonite Brethren Churches.
