My daughter, Sarah, has been in Bristol, TN at her new internship with SafeWorldNexus for just about a month now. The weekend after the 4th, we loaded up the van and her Honda and moved her into the over-the-garage studio apartment ( generously provided by a friend of the ministry) which she is sharing with Rachel and Katherine, two other interns. Things are cozy, so they are getting to know each other fast! After spending the weekend acclimating, they dove right into work, brainstorming ideas for a September missions conference at a nearby church which they are leading, volunteering at Jon Acuff's "Quitter" Conference in Nashville, and preparing for upcoming trips to Haiti and Uganda.
This internship is unpaid, so Sarah has been working hard for the past 6 months, saving her money and raising support from family and friends. She will also be working part-time at a cafe called Java J's in Bristol. In additon to regular living expenses, she also needs to pay for her travel expenses. Right now she only has about 3 months out of the 12 covered. If you would like to contribute to her support, go to her blog and follow the instructions on the right side menu. My cupcake baking will be helping to support her as well.
I am extremely proud of her in taking this leap of faith and giving her heart to serving God through this organization. Whether she is there for 3 months or 3 years, I know God is faithful to complete the work He has begun in her life. Philippians 1:4-6
