Alexander Cook, Black Diamond Intern
Hello! My name is Alexander and I am proud to be a part of the Black Diamond Camp Internship program!
I found myself at Camp back in 2019 as a summer staffer, it was then I got to meet all the wonderful staff and experience the beautiful campus. I served two more summers after my first, and now I find myself in the internship program!
Camp has really become a large part of my life, something the former me would never have expected. If there’s one thing I’ve learned while working at Black Diamond it’s God is in control and only He really knows the plan! I never planned to stay at Camp this long, but I’m glad I have. I’m blessed to be able to be a part of this ministry and its wonderful community, and I’m grateful that this is where God put me.
For me as a person it’s hard to really “give up” when it comes to plans and the future. It took me a LONG time to finally relax and let God be in control, but at the end of the day, only He can truly give us what we need! This mindset isn’t always easy, but sometimes we all need to step back, take a deep breath, and remember that God has us – always. Even God rested on the seventh day!
