My Black Diamond Internship

When Easter 2021 came around, I had no idea what I was doing with my life. I had just spent the previous two years dedicated to missions in the South Pacific Islands when suddenly Covid started to spread around the world. This led me to move back in with my parents in Arizona as I tried to figure things out. Through this, I decided that I should move back to my hometown, Auburn WA, to look for new opportunities. Right away I got reconnected with my home church and found that Black Diamond Camp was looking for summer staff. I felt like God was nudging me in this direction, so I applied.

Fast forward to August 2021. As summer was ending, I heard about the Internship Program that was running at Camp and once again, I felt God nudging me toward it. Committing to the internship was really one of the best decisions I have ever made. Ever since it started, it has been a joy to serve the groups that have come through and see how God impacts every one of them. Through the internship, I have gotten to see the ins and outs of what camping ministry is and how we can glorify God here at Camp. Even though this is not where I thought I’d be, God has provided so many opportunities to grow as I discover my passion for camping ministry.

Thankfully, she was blessed by wonderful chaperones who encouraged and reassured her as well as went to classes ...

I will hold you up with my victorious right hand." -Isaiah 41:10 NLT The people of God have been scattered everywhere. The Lord has not forgotten them. Kings and nations in whose land God’s people live are making, assembling, and putting their trust in man-made idols. Kings of nations are bewildered at how it is these scattered ...

When Abundance Happens

“Listen, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord alone. And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength. And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today. Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up. ...
