It’s the moment you have all been waiting for..
I would go as far to say the most anticipated event within the last 3 minutes!
No, it’s not any other scandalous happening with Miley Cyrus, thankfully.
However, the window into my life is open once again!
Well, the last time we talked I was about to embark on what I would later learn to be the BEST summer of my life. It was one, if not the greatest, learning and growing experience I have been apart of! I traveled on behalf of MNU as a camp counselor all over the Midwest. 10 strangers, one van, one team, numerous of preconceived ideas, purposeful prayer, and a multitude of personalities all went into the oven of life to bake together! The end result; best friends, numerous incidences of God working, still 10 people shoved in a van, inside jokes #fuhdayz and memories enough for a lifetime or so.
This is where we started….
And we ended up here…
However, a small animal did make its way onto my face 🙂
The contrast between the pictures is largely symbolic of our relation to each other and vulnerability that we developed as a group. Needless to say, the Lord went before us, with us, and transformed lives from the inside out (mine for certain)!
Yet, with any great experience the question that soon follows is, “What now?”
Where do you take the memories, commitments, and lessons learned?
That’s yet another beautiful part of the community here at MidAmerica! I am surrounded by these same people and you can bet your bottom dollar
(one of those sayings you refer to only from previous exposure and NOT because you know the true meaning) that memories and feelings flood back once I catch a glimpse of these beautiful faces around campus. We are all still here to support each other, even though we are all facing different and some pivotal points in our young adult lives; marriage, graduation, jobs, or even deciding what person to reach out to today. The Lord didn’t stay at those camps, He came back with us. If you ask most any MNU student or Faculty member they would contend that something is different this year and it’s not too hard to figure out WHO it is 🙂
This is the point where this new life begins. The one that Christ has filled me with by the power of His Holy Spirit. I am beginning the next step in the life God is designing for me as I go.
Anyway, that’s a short glimpse of my summer and where I am right now! If you want to know more, have any questions, or would like to suggest a post topic feel free to contact my by:
