I decided to intern at UrbanPromise Wilmington because I wanted to do something meaningful with my summer and something that involved working with kids. I knew working there would be a challenge for me because I had never lived in an environment like Wilmington, and I knew it would be hard work. However, I knew I would be able to reach out to people and share God’s love, while growing in my faith and in experience.
I returned for a second summer because of the great experience and great people I met throughout my time working there. I knew that God was doing great things through that ministry and I wanted to continue to be part of it.
I have lots of fond and funny memories of UrbanPromise. One of them is dressing up like a cow with the other interns for Cow Appreciation Day at Chick-fil-a!
One of the best moments of working at UrbanPromise happened more than once. It was the feeling you get from being able to share the gospel with young children. I loved the questions and curiosity they have about Christ, and I was thrilled and amazed by God over and over again about being part of the construction of their faith!
I always look back at my time there with fond memories, and I love hearing from and catching up with the people I worked with there.
