Well, as of yesterday, I’ve officially been in New York for 2 months. In some ways it’s hard to comprehend it’s been that long and in other ways it feels much longer. In any case, I truly am loving life here. As Jason pointed out though, it’s crazy to think that 1/6 of my internship is over. What’s even crazier is that it seems like everything is just now getting ready to begin!
Fall programming starts tomorrow (well kind of today with Youth Band) and I’m excited to see what God has in store for this year. (Another post is coming about this).
In the mean time, check out some more exciting adventures and blessings that happened recently:
On labor day, the Whited family invited me to go hiking/geocaching with them and I had a wonderful time! Here’s a picture that Wisken took of me by The Eternal Flame (I think that’s what it was called) at Chestnut Ridge Park. Natural gas comes up in the rocks behind a waterfall and someone lit it at one point.
It was a beautiful day hiking, geocaching, picnicing and just enjoying life together out in God’s beautiful creation. Here is one of my favorite pictures from the day:
Now fast forward from Monday to earlier today (Saturday). Some amazing youth that came to help around church today. Our main task was cleaning/rearranging the youth space, but the youth are so awesome that they agreed to help out for a few minutes on the renovations taking place in the preschool.
Here are some pictures of the youth (and the amazing Mike Zekas) in action:
Awesome job team!
I truly cannot thank God enough for the COUNTLESS blessings that I’ve found here in New York and specifically at First Trinity in the last two months. Thanks to everyone who’s made it so wonderful! I’m excited to see what adventures the next 10 months bring as well!
