Austin Yoder 2015-16 Intern
A large part of what I’ve learned in the internship has come from all of the self examination and self study that we started the year off with. Recognizing my areas of strengths (like administration and teaching) lets me focus on growing and continuing in those things. Discovering some of my tendencies and weaknesses (like being controlling and not trusting others to help) allows me to be intentional about correcting those behaviors. Then from that point, I’ve been afforded opportunities to serve in some of those strengths and to become more comfortable with who I am in sharing my testimony.
I’m also enjoying getting to do studies on different ways that people interact with each other and with pain from their past. Learning and understanding these things serves as a great aid to identifying needs that need to be ministered to and knowledge about how to do that.
