It finally feels like spring, and you have no idea how happy that makes me. I know, spring started like a month ago, but not here. Finally, the flowers are blooming in New York City. Everything is bright, warm and happy.
The arrival of warmer weather also means our summer interns will arrive soon. In less than two weeks, we will start our Multiply NYC internship program. I can’t believe that one year ago, I was getting ready to serve as an intern, and now I am one of those will lead the interns. A lot has happened in the past year.
This summer, we have 15 interns serving in 13 Metropolitan New York City ministries. Our interns come from various states, such as Georgia, Arizona, Oregon and, of course, Texas! All six of the Texas interns are from Go Now Missions, and I’m so excited that four of those come from my Baptist Student Ministry and one of those four comes from my church. I’m finally going to have a little piece of South Texas in New York City.
I am looking forward to what God will do this summer through our interns.
One of the Go Now interns will serve at Iglesia Bautista La Palabra, and he will be working with the youth group and music ministry, as well. Please pray for our interns. Pray that God can prepare their hearts and minds. Also, pray for the Metropolitian New York Baptist Association staff, so we can also be prepared for the summer. And pray for me, that I keep motivated and focused.
