What people have said about GOV
World Changers Internship 2011
I have spent a considerable amount of time with the Generations of Virtue team in the last three years. Three years ago I attended their six-week internship. This experience changed my way of thinking about my Christian walk. At that point in my life I was backsliding. What was amazing to me is that I was around this group of Christians for six weeks nonstop and their conduct, respect for each other and respect for God was very high. They sought God's will for almost every action that they took, not just the big ones, but especially the day to day activities. I was challenged by this biblical model of living and because of them living out God's will I was convicted to change some of the things of the world that I was in love with and to fall in love with God once again.
Last Summer I spent another six weeks with them helping with their ministry. At this point I was full fledged and walking (or flying) toward God. Their ministry, again was an example of how Christians everywhere should act. I would be with them for a week or two and then go back to be with my family for a weekend and then go back to help GOV. The whole time I had my parents continually encouraging me in Christ and the GOV team supporting me during the time I was there. This was a time of building and hammering plates of armor. It has absolutely helped me to combat the sin that is smashed in my face every day it college. I have benefitted from the team's unwavering biblical pursuit of Christ.
World Changers Internship 2009
I went on the GOV Internship in 2009 and loved every minute of it! It was a fun experience, but more than that it was a time of growth. The GOV girls really took us under their wings so to speak. They were not afraid to point out our strengths as well as our weaknesses, and helped shape us into the women that we are today. They have an awesome ministry, and I encourage anyone who can to go on one of these Internships!

The first time I ever left home by myself was the on Generations of Virtue 2011 Spring Internship. At the tender age of 17, I was scared, but I was ready to do something different, BE something different. During the internship I was completely out of my comfort zone. I came from a fairly sheltered, close knit homeschooling family which gave me solid roots though admittedly shaky wings. Being away from all I had ever known and the people that had always supported me was painful, but what I was feeling was only some growing pains as I learned to stand firmly in God and His promises to me. I was learning and growing so much on the internship that I stayed longer than the standard 6 weeks. I soon returned to my home where I lived again with my family for 3 months.
During that time I was praying and seeking council about returning to Generations of Virtue for further training, perhaps for the mission field in Asia. I asked the GOV team and they never pressured me into a decision either way but told me to pray about it. So in September 2011, after I had graduated and turned 18, I stayed with GOV in Colorado for 3 months. At that time, I got a closer look at full time ministry, what exactly that meant, and how it looked, and if that was where God was leading me. I also got to see Kay and Julie more and interacted in their home with them. No family is perfect, and the Hiramine family is no exception, but never have I met a group of people so committed to each other. But their vision has a wider scope than just their biological family, their "family" encompasses everyone they meet and they treat them as such, helping in any way they can, pouring God's love into their lives.
After a couple months, I flew home to spend the holidays with my family. I never did go to the mission field with Generations of Virtue. I never joined any organizational ministry full time. And for two years I have lived home and worked a farm, using the gifts God has given me to serve Him in a way that fits my personality and abilities. God showed me that every job a Christian does is a ministry, just in a different package.
The only other time I visited Generations of Virtue for any length of time was last fall (2012) for the J127 nine week discipleship course. This time, I went just to learn about God. He revealed Himself to me more than ever before through renowned speakers, worship time, and intense study of God's Word. I made some lasting friendships with other students and built upon the foundation I already had in my Christian walk.
With Kay, Julie, Sara, Katharine, Abby, Tim, Beth, Megan and Courtney I have worked hard, studied hard, laughed hard, and learned much. I know my place isn't as a permanent member of their team, but they will always hold a special place in my heart because I've seen the fruit. I've seen the hearts softened and the lives touched by God through the people of Generations of Virtue. They have been positive role models and an encouragement in my life. I don't regret a single day I've spent under their teaching. In fact, I know I wouldn't be the same without it, and for that I am truly grateful.

I came onto this internship in a confused state of my life. I had no idea who I was in Christ. On this internship I learned that not only am I God's daughter but also I am loved by many. I was able to do things that are once in a lifetime. I had amazing time traveling the country. I would recommend it to anyone.
World Changers Internship 2013
The Generations of Virtue internship was undoubtedly the most impactful journey I have ever experienced. It stretched and grew me in ways I never thought possible. The GOV team walked the entire internship with me and supported me every step of the way. Generations of Virtue has blessed me and countless others by their willingness to tirelessly instill in others God's design for purity. Thank you GOV team for the opportunity of a lifetime.

I first met Julie Hiramine at The Mass Hope Home school convention sometime about 2003. I am a home schooling mom and at the time my two daughters were about 8 and 10. I went to one of her seminars about purity and was really touched by her message because she talked about purity for our children and it was not just about sex, it was about purity of the heart. That is something I embraced and believed wholly as a mom about God giving me as a parent a large responsibility in training up Godly children and protecting their hearts. It involved real, every day stuff, like guarding what your children watch and hear. Where we go and who we spend time with. How we dress and behave around others. It was a full time job as a parent and I was inspired and encouraged as a mom. Over the years of homeschooling I continued to go to conventions yearly and Generations of Virtue was there every year. Every year I visited their booth and met with Julie and the wonderful young ladies that worked with her.
Later on when my daughter was a senior in high school and desiring to do something different with her life, seeing where God would lead her, we had learned about an internship that Generations of Virtue offered. None of our children had ever been away from home. We felt this was a great opportunity for our daughter and being very familiar with this ministry, we were comfortable sending her. Well, turns out it was a blessing for her. The experience was truly life changing. Our 17 year old left a young lady and truly came back a woman on fire for Jesus. We had seen some major changes upon her return and she has not stopped growing since. It was a great experience for her and very much a part of her spiritual growth. It was difficult when she left because we were not able to speak to her but one day a week, on Sundays. As time would have it, we understood this time was important for her growth. She was able to totally concentrate on her and GOD, not home.
So since then, she has gone back to visit with Generations of Virtue in Colorado and in NY at the Mission. She has periodically worked with them at conferences when needed and she went back on another internship program, J127 in 2012. While she continues to be a part of this organization from time to time, she has taken her family along as well. Steven and I have gone to The Mission for work weekends that we truly enjoy taking part of. We go as a family and have made relationships with many other families who also attend. Yes, we work hard because we also see the vision that is there in restoring The Mission. We also enjoy great fellowship, campfires, worship time and BBQ time. I have gotten to know the Hiramines and truly enjoy their company. They are just real people like myself who love the Lord and are working to further His kingdom. I know they are passionate about what they do and also love their children very much. We feel we are all one big family and I feel truly blessed to have met them and the fabulous team of Generations of Virtue. We will continue to work with this group and look forward to the future of The Mission.

I really enjoyed my time away with the GOV team doing the J127 program. I learned so much about myself and had a wonderful time and experience. It was nice being able to get away from all the distractions of normal life and focus on God and what's important.

Our daughter attended the 6-week World Changers Internship and had a wonderful time! She formed deep friendships, strengthened her faith, learned skills that helped her secure her current job and was able to see areas of the country we haven't been able to visit as a family. The aspect she enjoyed the most was being able to speak with other teens and their parents in the booths and during sessions. It was a fulfilling element of the internship that has helped her to develop into a beautiful Godly young lady. I thank Generations of Virtue for giving her this opportunity to grow and experience the things that she did within a secure, caring environment. We were able to speak with her throughout the 6 weeks and hear her excitement broaden as the weeks progressed. Our thanks to all of those on staff who helped her experience her growth in so many areas of her life in a venue that she feels so passionate about.
J127 Gap Semester 2013
J127 has hands down been the best and most spiritually edifying experience of my life! The GOV staff members are so genuinely interested in your spiritual growth, that they go to great lengths to help you cultivate a deeper relationship with Christ. To have God take me out of what I'm used to, (my routine, my school, my friends, my family, and my church) and to have Him bring me all the way to an environment so He could have me to Himself free of distractions, and to capture my heart at a place centered around Him was a once in a lifetime opportunity that I am so beyond blessed to have experienced. The main role of J127 was to make disciples by equipping us with Biblical truths, help us in discovering our spiritual gifts, and to allow a nearly distraction-free environment for God to do His work in our hearts and reveal Himself to us. I could write a book about the things I've learned, and the ways i've grown at J127! God definitely has His hand over GOV, the GOV staff, and the J127 program, and I wouldn't trade my experience with them for anything! Every teenager needs to experience J127!

Our daughter participated in the GOV internship program over the summer between her junior and senior years in high school. She came home from that experience having made some new friends, shared new experiences, enjoyed ministering as part of a team, and learned much about herself. She has since graduated from college and married, and still has positive memories of that summer.

As parents of a J127 student, there are no words that can convey how beneficial this experience has been for our daughter. We entrusted Generations of Virtue with our precious daughter, and they invested in her spiritual growth by surrounding her with Godly people and including her in Godly activities. I wish that every young person in America could experience a program with GOV.
J127 Gap Semester 2013
The J127 program was a great experience for me. During the program I learned a lot, but when I got back and people ask me what I learned and I began to really think about it, I realized that I learned a boatload more than I thought!
I brought back a broader view and deeper understanding of who God is and what role He has in my life. I learned about missionary work and leading Bible studies. God met me and taught me through everything we learned. One of my favorite things about the program was that I made lifelong friends.
One of God’s many blessings during that time is that the 9 ½ week program was perfect for me! Never having been away without my family for more than a night or two I expected to get very homesick during the program, but right up until the last week, God gave me a peace about being at the program. I knew that I was still learning things that He wanted me to. In that last week God gave me knowledge that it was time for the program to end and for me to go home to my family.
World Changers Internship and J127 Gap Semester 2010, 2012
What's unexpected you ask?
A public school kid turned secular liberal arts college student stumbles her way into an internship with a ministry devoted to purity, to integrity, to the family, to service, to respect, to love stories with Jesus, to lives lived to the glory of God's fullness.
I didn't grow up in Christian community. My parents weren't and aren't Christians. My younger sister struggled deeply through her teen years before Jesus called her into a life full of HIs grace just over a year ago now. You might think that after I'd seen everything a family could be, I might be discouraged about what mine actually was. I had seen the difficulties in my parents' marriage. I had felt the pressure to be a good kid. I am sure I have hurt my family, but I had also been hurt by them. The Generations of Virtue staff - especially Kay and Julie Hiramine and Katherine Harley and Megan Briggs - helped me to grow in love and forgiveness for them. They encouraged me to pray radically for my family and to overwhelm them with Christ-like love and service. And on the day my sister came to Christ, I was with these people who had known my pain and my burdens and oh what joy there was that day.
It's been three years since my internship, and I'm still learning from it. Generations of Virtue gave me the tools and resources I needed to transform my community and the experience to give me the confidence to actually do it. I had never before seen the Christian life lived so vibrantly, service performed so cheerfully, or personal standards set so high. After my internship, I dove into my sophomore year of college with reckless abandon. I got to put up a display on biblical marriage in the art museum as part of a class project, host a campus event on the secular case for abstinence, and participate in discussions on how Jesus changes everything about how I live. People, Christian and not, on campus trusted me and asked for counsel when it came to their hookups and their dating and their fears and hopes and regrets.
I certainly didn't expect that.
By the fall of my junior year, I had really found my place. I had friends that were like family, a challenging and rewarding place on the cross country and track teams, a gospel-driven church home, classes and professors that grew me daily, and an active role in campus life. I was also preparing for a semester in Dakar, Senegal, where I took courses and interned with Partners International. I didn't think life could get any more brilliant.
And then, J127 happened. The Lord so patiently and faithfully turned my heart to the program, and in 2012, I gave up the first semester of my senior year to take part in the program - for credit and fully paid for by my school. J127 brought so much wisdom. If the internship taught me to pour myself out, J127 showed me how to be filled. Filled with the joy of daily communing with God. Filled with wisdom from godly mentors from around the world. Filled with passion to do more and to be more because Jesus is everything and God does indeed have a plan for my life. These mentors constantly pointed me to the cross and helped me grow in grace and we laughed and we cried as we proclaimed in song and with our lives, "Blessed be the name of the Lord, for You are holy, holy, holy"
That was a year ago. And where am I now?
In a lot of ways, I'm your typical 20-something Seattle-ite. I drink copious amounts of coffee and go on mountainous hikes; I walk to work and I frequent independent bookstores. I play the acoustic guitar and live in a small apartment.
And then, there's the unexpected.
I have truly seen how blessed the single life is. I can't even describe all the opportunities I have to serve my church and my community - because I don't have people at home who need my attention, love and provision (not to say I never will or that it's bad; it's just a different season). I have fallen in love with Jesus, and He has brought me to a place where I can lead worship on Sunday mornings and help with Sunday school. I can buy diapers for families struggling to make it by and pray for new moms and dads and babies in the church. I can rejoice with the newlyweds and teach children to play the guitar and be a friend to someone who is drowning. I can study the Bible and read good books and rejoice because from the beginning, God planned that I would experience and learn from Generations of Virtue in the specific way to fulfill His call on my life.
I have embraced the unexpected life because our God is the King of the unexpected. What's more unexpected than the Word becoming flesh to dwell with men? To love those whom the world considered unworthy. Who expected to walk on water or for five loaves to feed 5,000 or for the lame to walk or the blind to see or the dead to live? Who expected God to come down from heaven to die that we might live? Who expected for every wrong thing we've ever done and every right thing we've ever done for the wrong reason to be forgiven and finished?
Almost four years ago, when I was accepted into the internship program, I never expected the impact that Generations of Virtue would have on my life, how empowered I would be to live with integrity and conviction. But God did, and even when we are faithless, He remains faithful to us and more importantly to Himself and His redemptive plan (See 2 Timothy 2:13). And for that, I am most thankful.

Our son, Byron interned with GOV the end of his senior year of high school. His was a very positive experience. Tim mentored Byron, forming a strong bond of fellowship and accountability. We communicated with both Tim and Byron regularly and appreciated the GOV team’s continual updates.
As parents we are so thankful for the Hiramine’s accessibility and evident respect for us. Our biggest concern before sending Byron off was that he would have strong male leadership and accountability. Upon voicing this concern, Kay and Tim were in immediate contact with us, clearly delineating their availability and accountability for Byron. We were not disappointed with the clear and strong male role models they were.
We encouraged Byron to be true to our Lord, but to learn from the mission team members. He returned home having observed Christians outside of his family, walking daily and was enthusiastic by his experience. He came away seeing Christians with differing theological perspectives – charismatic, worship styles different, but the fundamental core values were the same. He appreciated his church family backing him in prayer as well. Byron was stretched and built up by his time interning, learning to and loving to serve on the team- helping others like himself to become a part of the next generation of virtue.
The following year, during Byron’s gap year before staring college, he had the opportunity to serve on the team for 6 weeks. That term proved to once again be a powerful time of encouragement and being strengthened in the Lord as he served with the ministry, which he feels so strongly about. The purpose and message of GOV has impacted Byron to “Have done with lesser things” and to “Put on the Lord Jesus Christ.” As parents, we are ever thankful for the open dialog with Kay and Julie, Sara, Tim and all the staff. Julie has become my (Merry's) friend through this adventure. Key impacts Byron shared with us after serving with GOV are: 1. Learning to live Biblically on a daily basis 2. Practicing daily prayer and fellowship with the brethren 3. Learning to forgive quickly and receive criticism humbly (It was not hard being real on this team, for their love is genuine). Upon Byron’s return, we were blessed with the fruit of a strengthened family bond, witness to Byron’s enthusiastic involvement in our local church and a greater vision for things eternal. Today Byron is a good role model at his school, encouraging others to consider the ways of the Lord.
We would strongly recommend this program: serving with GOV. We will prayerfully consider our younger sons applying for the opportunity. We have been and are in love with the mission and ministry of GOV.

We discovered Generations of Virtue through my daughter, Trinity. We had always purchased things from your company and always saw you represented at our homeschool conventions. But, she was the one that researched and found out that you offered internships.
As soon as she found the internship program we sent out letters to family members requesting support to attend the program and we managed to round up the proper funding. She was so excited!
Trinity had always been an obedient and respectful child and teen. She loved the Lord. Which was evident in her willingness to seek a God-fearing group with which to do an internship. But, when she returned home, she returned a much different young lady. She was more disciplined in her work, she was diligent in her studies, and in her time with the Lord. Her desire to honor and respect us was more evident. She spoke of all of her experiences as the days rolled on and they all were positive and encouraging. It seemed that everything she learned or gained was pointed towards honoring her God and spending time with him and towards honoring her parents and the authority that God had placed in them.
I have enjoyed the young woman that Generations of Virtue continued to nurture and encourage. I have been thoroughly pleased with this program. I am slightly disappointed that we didn't find this program when my two older daughters were young enough to attend, however, I still have a younger daughter than Trinity who should be ready for the program in 3-4 years and I can't wait for her to be able to attend and experience those great experiences that Trinity encountered.
Thank you so much for all that your group does to encourage young girls to seek God, honor their parents, and maintain their virtues.

Being able to attend the J127 program was such an amazing experience for me. At J127 I had the opportunity to be around, and learn from Godly people who helped me grow in my relationship with Christ. The environment made it easy for me to focus on my relationship with Christ and be able to make great strides in my faith. I highly recommend the J127 program for any teenager or young adult.

Our daughter, Julie Baron was given the opportunity to go on an internship with Generations of Virtue during the summer of 2010. Julie was very anxious to join with this team, to travel and provide education and knowledge to families across the United States. Her Dad previously knew of G.O.V. through home school conferences and was excited for her to be able to be a part of this ministry. However, I was not familiar with G.O.V. and was very hesitant to send our (then) 18 year old daughter off across the country with a group of people I had never met. I talked with 2 very close friends whom I have known for many years and both highly recommended Generations of Virtue and completely calmed any feelings or thoughts that I had of doubt or hesitation. Additionally, one of my friends suggested that I call Julie Hiramine and address any questions and concerns with her. I did call Julie right away, and she gave me a great amount of her time. I immediately felt like I was speaking with an old friend who understood every one of my questions and concerns. Every word Julie Hiramine spoke confirmed that this was not just a safe and virtuous mission opportunity, but also an opportunity for our daughter to work hard along with like-minded Christian young ladies, providing a tremendous opportunity for personal growth.
Our daughter was able to raise the required money for air fare and other personal expenses in a surprisingly short amount of time, and so was able to accompany the Generations of Virtue team. Julie left our home with major problems with rebelliousness, disobedience, and disrespect. We had not even realized the full negative impact on our family, of Julie’s behavior in our home, until after she had left. To this day it hurts us deeply to think about the damage she caused and the fact that she has never repented of the extreme discord that she created. She was so anxious to get married that she had become involved in a secret relationship with a very troubled young man who was 8 years older than she, and who had been diagnosed with a major mental illness for which he was unwilling to receive treatment. Unfortunately, and very regretfully to me, this young man was largely responsible for funding Julie’s internship, after giving her the majority of his life savings. This saddens me because this young man did not have any college degree and his income came from employment with a landscaping company, so it was not even year-round. His income level caused him to live with his father who constantly criticized this young man’s inability to support himself. It hurts me deeply that our daughter accepted any money from him, let alone such a large sum.
Traveling with the Generations of Virtue team was one of the best things that ever happened to our daughter Julie! She was not able to have any telephone contact with anyone other than her parents during the duration of the internship. Every week when Julie called home, we noticed positive changes. Although Julie agreed to all of G.O.V.’s requirements, which were set in advance, for contact, etc. she did attempt to continue her relationship with that same man for a little while via letters. We later learned that different members of the team listened extensively to Julie’s description of her relationship, and gave her godly counsel which aligned with our thoughts. Because of their guidance, Julie was able to come to a realization that she should back off of that relationship for a time. Julie came home early from the internship because she wanted to attend the Summit Ministry Conference. From her Dad’s and my perspective, Julie came back home a much better person, though still very anxious about wanting to be married but not knowing who she would marry. I spent a lot of time listening to her expressions of distraught and angst on the subject of her unknown future. I tried repeatedly to console her with words describing the awesome gift that we have as Christians, of depending on God completely and His amazing provision when we wait on Him.
Thankfully, Julie began a relationship in October 2010, with the man that she did marry. Until February of 2011, both of us, Julie’s parents, approved and were supportive of this relationship. We believed this man was a Christian and would continue (our) lead in Julie’s life, of a Christian lifestyle. They were supposed to get married in our church, where they had both attended and where they had met, on May 21, 2011. On April 16, 2011, they chose to elope after both had created extreme damage to both of our (Julie’s parents) relationships with both of them. They did not even invite any family, and did not tell us until after Julie came to our home and caused additional trouble. We still do not have a relationship with our daughter that has been restored to (even) what it was before her relationships with men. Our hope and prayer is that she has repented to God, because her relationship with Him is truly the most important relationship. We also pray for their marriage.
As is very evident in this account/narrative, we believe everyone is responsible for their actions and how we treat others. We feel confident that we were diligent in our responsibility of raising our daughter, knowing we did our best. Julie is responsible for her bad choices. We are very grateful to the Generations of Virtue team for their efforts in biblical counsel and teaching in our daughter Julie’s life for the short time she was on her internship. They provided godly guidance at a time in Julie’s life when she would not receive the same from us. We both feel confident that Generations of Virtue is a great ministry that is much needed and also provides a wonderful opportunity for young ladies to expand or develop profound personal growth.
World Changers Internship and J127 Gap Semester 2013
During the past year I have spent a total of 16 weeks with GOV, both as an intern and J127 student. Looking back, I can honestly say that the times I’ve spent with them have been some of the most blessed, challenging and rewarding seasons of my life. The thing I appreciated most about being with GOV is that it wasn’t just a few weeks of experiences, but a time of learning values, truths and principles that will be with me for the rest of my life. I have so many wonderful memories, and also many times when I was challenged beyond what I would have chosen to do on my own. God used my time as a student and intern with GOV to strengthen my faith, resolve issues in my life, and draw me closer into a personal relationship with Him.
The GOV staff were kind, responsible, welcoming and inspiring. They had so much to teach and share, but didn’t try to coerce me to agree with them. They simply shared what God had taught them, and encouraged me grow personally into a deeper walk with God. They were organized but not controlling, ambitious but not unreasonable. Their passion for Christ and fervor to help others live fully for Him is a genuine part of their lives. They practice what they preach! It isn’t just a good face they put on - it’s who they are. I never felt pressured to conform to their ideas, and was always encouraged to follow God’s leading wherever that was. I am so very thankful that GOV is part of my life, and can’t wait to see what God is going to do through them in the future!

My 19 year old daughter has spent much time with the Generations of Virtue ministry this year and it has changed her life for the better. She enjoyed the 6 week, World Changers Internship in the spring and the 9 week, J127 Gap Semester in the fall. During that time she has not only grown in her relationship with the Lord, but also in emotional maturity. She learned a lot about her own spiritual walk with Jesus Christ through the many enriching teachings from authors and missionaries. She honed her self-discipline and interpersonal skills through hands on work, travel and academic projects and forged many friendships with both staff and fellow students. She arrived home motivated to serve her family and devoted to spending time in God' s word as a first priority of the day.
The experience and time with the exceptional staff at GOV inspired her to consider full time ministry herself and has broadened her horizons in many other areas, such as world missions. Fortunately, we are within driving distance of one of the ministry bases, so that visiting and helping out at various times in the future is a possibility for her. As a parent I would encourage my other children to pray and evaluate whether or not such an experience would benefit them. I am very thankful for the wonderful time that she had, for the edifying relationships developed, but mostly for the positive changes in her character developed through the intense, God-focus, in the every day life of the GOV staff.

From beginning to end, J127 was God's answer to Mark's and my prayers and desires for our daughter, Haley. We both felt that a gap year after high school graduation would be wise for her, and felt that an 'away' experience under the supervision of Godly people who would care for and guide her as we do as she stretched her wings would be the perfect situation. At the time we'd never heard of J127. And then the email arrived announcing the application period for the J127 internship. After reading everything the website had to say, viewing the GoV youtube videos, and praying over the opportunity, our excitement grew over the prospect of Haley participating in this internship. And the excitement continued to grow after she was accepted into the program and we prepared her for her adventure.
While Haley was living in N.Y. with the J127 Team, we spoke or skyped almost daily. Every time we spoke, she told of great speakers, Godly examples, fun, challenges, and her love and respect for her fellow interns and the Team. She's home now, following an amazing 9 weeks with the J127 Team. Her dad and I are deeply grateful to you for the Godly influence you've had and, we hope, continue to have in her life. She is that much more mature and that much more in love with Jesus, our Lord. You all know that I missed her immensely while she was absent from our home, but I did not then, nor do I now, wish she'd stayed home. Our entire family is blessed by your relationship with Haley, and I fully expect her to continue growing in beauty as all that she learned and experienced during her time with J127 matures within her heart and mind.
Thank you so very much!
