The Elijah Experience has been such a great, amazing and exciting journey of knowing myself and finding my identity in Christ. I learned a lot about God, myself, community, missions, ministry and prayer. It was good beating the drum about AIDS in Livingstone. It stretched me in new ways and helped me rely on God for courage, which was just amazing.
Not all times were okay, sometimes we were given challenges that were out of my comfort zone but at the end of it all, I discovered that I created relationships with my fellow interns out of the same challenges and it brought me back to the importance of living in community.
Through this internship, I have discovered my spiritual gift and am so excited to put it into action. We went for an outreach to Lesotho and in as much as it was interesting, it wasn’t just an adventure, but people’s lives were touched and many gave their lives to Christ. That really pleased me. My greatest highlight is my continual spiritual growth and I wish the same for everyone.
