Today we are wrapping up our first ever summer internship! The summer has gone so smoothly, and we really have our two great interns to thank for it! Heather will be flying back to the States tomorrow, and LeAnna will be staying for a few more months to do the Discipleship Training School here at the YWAM base.
These girls have just been awesome as they have wrestled through issues of cross-cultural communication, poverty, and how God fits into it all. They have dedicated themselves to serving God and the people of El Salvador with a passion. I have learned so much from them as they have jumped right into ministry. For me, I find that after two and a half years I waver in my passion from time to time. They have been an example to me of running after God in whatever circumstance I find myself.
On behalf of El Salvador, our team, and our family we want to say thank you to Heather and LeAnna!
On another note, here is a link to a humorous blog post that they wrote to summarize their experience. If you’ve ever volunteered at the YWAM El Salvador base, or have worked anywhere in Latin America you will appreciate the hilarity that can come when working on a multi-cultural team. For everyone else, well, I guess you just had to be there!
