I have been an intern at RBI for almost 2 months now. It feels like it has been much longer actually. There is so much that needs to be done. As we’ve been told for the last 2 years of Bible school; ministry is spelled work. My internship is mainly split between Children’s Ministry and Youth Ministry. Our children are amazing.
They are so hungry for the things of God and for the power of God to move in them and their families. There is nothing more awesome to me than being able to be in a room with 40, 3-5 year olds saying the prayer of salvation and then being filled with the Holy Spirit. My job is to prepare lessons for the children who not only come everyday to the school, but who come on Sunday mornings. This is the only chance that we have with many of them and we make it appoint to not give them a watered down version of thee gospel but to give them the real. In addition to the children the youth are an on fire group of young people who are passionate about seeing God shake their generation.
There are many in out group who have led over one thousand people to the Lord one on one. One of the main things that I enjoy about youth being able to spend one on one time with the girls and see how God is growing them personally. I’ve been able pour into the students and watch myself change right along with them. I also help in areas of worship, food distribution, and outreach. I think the main lesson that I am learning right now is that there is always work to do and I can’t do it all. I can’t stretch myself too thin. I am having a lot of fun running however.
