My first week.

Friday, May 19

I woke up pretty early and went straight to the airport. I went through security without getting stopped for the very first time and waited for the plane. The plane ride was nice and I watched Spongebob and Fairly OddParents until I ran out of things to watch, so I played N64 Mario Kart. Not sure why that matters but if anything is going to get you through 3 hours without wifi, its going to be that.

When I arrived, the other intern picked me up and took me to his house and I slept for a bit before coming to Adam and Katie’s. That was pretty much the whole day.

Saturday, May 20

I didn’t do much besides get used to the new altitude.

Sunday, May 21

My first time at Summit Church. I arrived ad served right away only knowing like two things in the entire building. The service was really good and really long. The series is: JESUS IS _____. The service was on Jesus being supernatural.

Elevate started after audit was pretty cool. Adam preached on relationships. I met some peeps and that was the majority of the day.

Monday, May 22

We had a meeting which was going well until we all decided to go to the bathroom. We all left our keys inside the room we were meeting in and we locked ourselves out of the room and out of the building. So, we got lunch at this vietnamese restaurant that was really good. I’m probably going to go back. Nathan’s mom gave us her keys while we were eating so we went back to continue the meeting. When we got there, we realized she didn’t have an exterior key, so we were locked out still but someone was in the building so we knocked on the door. The meeting went well though.

Tuesday, May 23

We were at the office for a bit. I cut out a million pieces of paper. Nathan, Adam, and I discussed some things about Elevate. After words I went to Levi’s football practice, and Judah’s baseball practice(its really cold at night here).

Wednesday, May 24

Was told it would be a hike day, did not understand how big the hike was. We went to the Manitou Incline in Manitou Springs. This incline takes you up a little bit into pikes peak. I didn’t make it to the top of the stairs. I’m from around sea level, I have asthma, I could be in better physical shape, I was in a lot of pain. I climbed up to the 777-something thousand mark, which was huge because I thought I wasn’t going to make it after 200 stairs. I didn’t make it to the top but I was close so maybe one day I’ll make it up there. Oh, Adam and Nathan ran up it, how? idk. I also forgot to put sunscreen on my arms and now look like a lobster so thats cool.

After the hike, we got Jamba Juice and Qdoba. I don’t think I’ve ever ate anything so fast. We also went to World Prayer Center, which was really cool to see an entire building dedicated to prayer. I prayed outside and a spider was climbing on me which was really distracting.

We finished the night at Lauren’s soccer game at the Dick’s sporting good arena. The game was pretty lit even though they lost. They’ll win it next year.

Thursday, May 25

Not much going on. Just resting and avoiding the sun.

So I fell a little behind…

To catch you guys up to date, here’s whats been going on in my life.

Ive been doing a lot with the group Elevate. I gotten the privilege to help lead a life group, play drums, do production stuff, and plan really cool things afterwards. We’ve done group hikes, trips to Sonic, and this week we having a prayer night that we’re hoping will inspire students lives. I love this group of students and am so thankful to get to be apart of the movement they are making in Denver.

I’ve taken some trips! This weekend we went to the Rocky National Park and I got to see so of God’s epic creations on Earth. We visited a few lakes and got to have a snowball fight.

I helped out at a festival! I got to represent Summit Church at HopeFest and it was a fun time. I wasn’t a big fan of any of the artists but I got to do the compassion experience which was really cool. I snuck backstage for family force five and loved watching Teddy’s energy from behind the drum kit.

I was a leader at City Camp! I got to help people who were homeless and I painted the interior of a house.

I made some friend! I know, its a big deal. I’ve been able to make friendship that I hope will last a while. I love my friends here and I’m so excited to see God use them.

 

The Journey Begins.

Friday, May 19th, I begin my Journey going to Colorado for the summer. I will be an ┬áIntern at Summit Church and I am beyond excited to see what God is going to do in my life through this trip. I have my worries and I pray that I will overcome these difficulties to keep my mind set on what God’s vision for me is. I’m so excited to share my experiences with you through this blog. I’m thankful for the opportunity and can’t wait to see what God is about to do. God is good.
