It has been 5 days since move in, and things are going great. The transition was not bad at all. Of course there was a little stress with all the meetings and information, but over all it went really well. I have to say that I am very glad to have met the entire house before moving in or it would have been really awkward. We have had our moments, but it's been fairly easy getting comfortable! Aubree and Micah are great (house parents) and have been really helpful in making us all feel at home! Liza, their daughter is so sweet and so much fun. The whole house is very welcoming and a great place to be and I am very thankful!
We had our first meetings with our leaders over our internships. I am working with Brittney Becker and know her already pretty well, so I was more then excited to hear that I would be working with her. I am interning with Broad River Community Church (BRCC) in organizing the weekly email, updating the email lists, making announcements about upcoming events, planning certain events, typing out the Sunday worship slides, communicating with all the team leaders, coming up with volunteer and outreach opportunities, and scheduling greeters. I am very excited! My first church wide email will be sent out tomorrow...pretty nerve wrecking actually.
My first "event" that I am over is the Volunteer Fair that is on the 30th. I have to make announcements for that, contact all the team leaders of the different ministries and make sure I have all of their info that I need, order food for that night, set up, etc. It's pretty crazy, but I am really enjoying it. I love this type of thing, and when I actually get to make it my own really excites me! Even so I have to remind myself that BRCC is not like any other church out there, they are their own body and they like it that way. It's really cool to see how much they put in making a strong community together and really strive to have strong relationships with one another the way God intended it in the first place. It will definitely be a blessing to be a part of that this year.
This week time will be taken up by internship things that need done like making flyers, sign up sheets, sending out the email, contacting team leaders, and then job hunting. No interviews yet, but I am still trusting that the Lord has it under control and that it will come!
I hope all who are reading this are being blessed by the Lord and that they will be encouraged to know that God is doing a work not only here but everywhere. He loves you and wants you to know that He is standing right by you! Be Blessed!
