The Lord is always doing something in our lives even if it is not easy for us to see. When I began the CBM National Internship Program I had an idea of what I was getting into, but experiencing it first-hand was like nothing else I’ve encountered. As I mentioned in my very first blog, God worked in me in tremendous ways just within the first month that I was at CBM National Headquarters. As I continued my time at various CBM areas, it became harder to see what the Lord was doing in my life even though I knew He was working. ...

I'm one who loves to dwell on the past and my memories, but sometimes I wonder how God will use some of
my past experiences for His glory.
I left off my last blog with hopes of going to a friend's wedding. Soon after that, I found out that my CBM
National Intern Coordinator had talked to the camp director at Camp Gilead (my summer rotation) and I
would be able to go.
I thought I would be going as a guest, with no stress or responsibilities, and I was ready to embrace a
peaceful evening of relaxation...I was wrong. I ...

One thing I never thought I’d be is a leader. I like to follow and work behind the scenes, but not lead! Yet, God’s plan always prevails.
“Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.” ~Proverbs 19:21

“…Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be ...

My best friend somehow believes I actually enjoy doing dishes. I don’t know where he got that from; maybe it’s because one of the first things I did when I got to Ponderosa Bible Camp for my rotation with CBM’s National Internship Program was to start preparing the kitchen for the summertime. Of course, that meant lots of scrubbing and elbow grease. It was fulfilling work, but I can hardly say that I enjoyed it….okay, maybe I enjoyed it a little bit. I mean, if I had to pick between shoveling mulch and doing ...

Perhaps one of the most pressing questions on this path God has me on as a CBM National intern is how can God use a guy like me to reach youth and guide them to Him? Sometimes I wonder how I can relate, given the age gap. I don't have much experience in camp life or with kids in general. I've had more of a selfish outlook than a servant’s heart for a long time. This experience as an intern is all so new to me. I'm learning as I go. What I find awesome though, is how easy these things come to me when God presents the opportunity. He ...
