JP 2017 Update - Day 47 (Last Day)
Today was the last day of Jeremiah Project. I am officially done with my internship. This was by far one of the best experiences of my life. I cannot put into words exactly how much I enjoyed the last 6 weeks. While there was plenty of exhaustion, tears, laughs, hugs, and drama; I enjoyed every second I was working with the staffers, adult leaders, and students. As much as I was looking forward to my last day out (solely out of sheer exhaustion and homesickness), I was so heartbroken when I had to turn my receipts over to Todd today. I never knew that receipts would mean so much to me! I gave Todd the last thing he needed from me and by 12:30 my work was officially completed. Now the overachiever in me still has some work I want to complete, but I am done. When I left, I told Todd how much I enjoyed this. I made sure he knew that I wanted to do this next year. He laughed and said ok, I said, "No, I'm being serious. I want to do this all over again. If you need any help during the year or with Lead or Journey or literally anything, please let me know. I loved every second of this." He smiled and said we would be in touch. We hugged and my job was done. I really cannot begin to explain how much I loved working every possible second of every possible day. I served the Lord in ways that I enjoyed and I am so grateful that I had this opportunity to give everything I could to this ministry.
I want to just do a giant shout-out to all the awesome staffers and leaders I got to work with this summer! I am so grateful I got to know and serve the Lord alongside each of you. I will never forget the lessons each of you taught me. Thank you! Thank you for spending a week or more of your summer to help the students learn more about their relationship with Christ.
I am currently sitting in a coffee shop in Ashburn finishing up my work and then I'm going to dinner at David's house. I will then officially be home and done with Jeremiah Project for this summer. I also have to say, I wasn't a coffee person before this summer, but after the last 6 weeks, I love it!
I am getting baptized and becoming a member of King's Cross! I will become a member of King's Cross on August 13th at 10:15 am. If you would like to come to witness my baptism, let me know! I would love it if you came!
Just because JP is over, doesn't mean I am done sharing my life and experiences with you all! If you would like to stay on updated on my life, shoot me a text, email, or even call me! I am going to continue these little updates on my life and where I am. Let me know if you'd like to stay updated on what I am up to!
Thank you all for the love, prayers, and support! I love you all!
