What a week! I'm now back in State College, PA, but my time in Florida was truly a life-changing experience. I got to experience God's grace and gentleness in such different ways, and I'm thankful for that. It was hard to leave friends I made. The joy I experienced during orientation is something I want to bottle it all up and share it with my friends in PA!
Our sessions in the morning would begin with stretching, a liturgy prayer, and a breath breath. For example...Breathe in: "The Lord is my shepherd." Breathe out: "I have all that I need."
Some of the most joyful moments for me were the ones where I got to spend time just getting to know people and feel like we were learning together.
If I'm honest, writing this first week was hard. I didn't know what exactly to share, and now that I have a captive audience, I'm trying to not let that bring any pressure to "perform." Pre-field Orientation was filled with fun activities, so much learning, and new experiences that I am happy to share!
I'm about to start my first week and I'm excited to see what this week of work looks like!
-For continued encouragement from the Lord and learning to hear His voice
-For continued provision
-For the other interns that they would stay safe and serve God by loving Him and loving others
