You have a chance to be part of what I am confident will be a life-changing summer for me. I have the privilege of being selected to serve on the summer staff at Lutheridge near Asheville, North Carolina. My summer will be spent witnessing my faith to over 2,000 children and youth who come to camp to grow in their faith and have fun in a very special intentional Christian Community.
I have been on staff for 2 years. I am excited to be on staff this summer because I am working at the best place ever! I can't wait to be an Outdoor Adventure Program counselor because we get to do awesome things in God's creation. I'm also excited to get to know the rest of the staff better and meet our campers. I'm looking forward to another fun and fulfilling and amazing summer! Another thing I'm super excited about is working with middle schoolers or high schoolers more since I want to be a teacher for kids that age.
How have you seen God at work so far this summer? God has been working in my summer in so many ways. I have met a lot of new campers that have showed me God in ways that I have never seen Him. Through their quirks and hardships and joys, my campers have been showing me God’s love every day. I also feel like God has been helping me grow in ways that I didn’t know I needed to grow. So far, this summer has been so incredible and I can’t wait to see what else God has in store for me.
How has this summer experience impacted your life? This summer I have made relationships with campers, staff, and volunteers I will never forget. I've felt God and the Holy Spirit working in my life in such special ways I will remember always.
