Mission Bite #161: Treated Like Family

My Student.Go summer internship was nothing short of amazing! I served in Louisville, KY at Crescent Hill Baptist Church and God was definitely with me in this new environment where I was out of my comfort zone!

With this being my very first experience working with children in Kindergarten through 5th grade, I was definitely nervous but excited as well! The congregation of Crescent Hill Baptist Church were very welcoming and open to new ideas that we as interns were able to provide. Moreover, they treated us like family from the very first day we arrived.

Throughout this past summer, we had a blast planning out Wednesday Night Bible lessons, Sunday Children Sermons, Messy Art Camp, Vacation Bible school and so many other fun summer events to keep the children active in church and engaged within the community.

Experiencing Louisville, KY and helping refugee children and youth adapt to the United States was wonderful, and also helping them get to know more about Jesus Christ was a blessing. I will take this experience with me wherever I go and I am very thankful to the Student.Go program for providing me the opportunity to learn more about myself as I discern my next steps in ministry.
