I left camp at the end of the summer of 2008. My internship had ended and I was ready to embark on the "real world" of College Station. My time in College Station was very short, and I ended up moving to Houston to begin an internship at Houston's First Baptist Church in the Missions Department. The past year and a half has been a whirlwind here in Houston. I have started and completed an internship, ended a relationship, moved to Katy with my aunt and uncle, started school (and completing soon!!), took a job I would of never thought I would take and have made some of the most incredible friends I could ever ask for. God has surely been faithful in this process.
Around this past Christmas, I began to feel a tug at my heart for Tejas. I had no clue what the Lord was beginning to stir up in me, and so I just let the stir happen and prayed through it. January 2, I went to a Christmas party at Camp and it was the first time I had been back to camp in months and it was the firs time since I had finished my internship that I felt at peace with being there. Over the next few months the stir became more and more like a push and a pull, but I still had no plans for the summer.
In March I went to a dear friends wedding at Camp and fell in love all over again. It was so amazing to be there and to catch up with old friends. God began to really stir in me what my summer could look like. I had a very quick conversation with a sweet woman named Jennifer, she's the bosses wife, where I basically told her my heart and that she should begin to pray about maybe a job for me in the summer and I told her that I would begin to pray for that position if that is what the Lord would have for me.
Over the past few weeks I have prayed and prayed and prayed and last Monday I was offered an AWESOME position. I thought and prayed about it for a few days and accepted the job last Thursday. I have already started packing up my stuff and I head that way for the summer on May 17th. I can't believe that the Lord is bringing me back to camp, but I am super pumped about it. I know that His plans are perfect and that all of this is going to be a stretching experience.
Please be praying for discipline and wisdom as I prepare my heart for this summer.
Love you friends.
