Summer LINK: Raleigh- Trusting Him Even with the Small Things!

Summer LINK: Raleigh- Trusting Him Even with the Small Things!

            This is my first year to serve as a Summer Link intern and it has been a wonderful experience! I am primarily working with the Women’s Ministry and the Student Ministry at Open Door. The Lord is teaching me so many things this summer as He is growing, stretching, and molding me as I serve Him.

            While working with the Women’s Ministry I was able to help plan and facilitate the women’s event for June. This event’s theme was “Smiling at the future.” Women gathered to fellowship, worship, hear from a speaker, and pray with one another. As the event approached I became a little anxious and stressed about all the little details, but the Lord showed me through this event that I need to always trust Him even in the small things.

            Also, I have had the opportunity to serve with the Women’s Bible study leader and attend the weekly women’s Bible studies. We have been studying Psalm 119 for the month of June. I have loved being able to learn from other women at our church as we study and pray through Scripture together. I have also been able to meet many new ladies at our church, which has been a blessing. As I have studied Psalm 119 the Lord is teaching me to always be meditating on His word and truths found in Scripture.

            This summer I will be apart of the team going to Boston. I am thrilled about the chance to go and serve our church plants and the people of Boston. We had our first trip meeting this week. It was encouraging to hear each of our team members share their burden to proclaim the Gospel message while in Boston. At the meeting we walked through Colossians 4:2-6, and discussed what it means to “Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving” (v. 2).  I pray that the Lord will allow me to have a watchful heart and mind, being in prayer for the trip and aware of the needs of those around me.

            Please be praying for our students and interns this week as they head to Creed Camp!
