Intern training has been a lot of fun. Yet it has also been very challenging. Each of the young adults attending the training is expected to learn everything a CYIAer is supposed to learn. On top of that, they have a higher standard to meet on each part. Whether it’s the Wordless book or the Missionary Story.

The interns have also been learning how to be leaders. They have been growing in their knowledge of running a Five Day Club and stretching their ability to keep everything running smoothly

Leaders in Training, Megan and Sheylah, have arrived and have been learning about songs, verses, missionary stories, leadership training, and team building with the rest of us.

Part of this training comes from an activity that involves blindfolds, running into trees, and distracting people with pool noodles. We all found that we aren’t as good at being aware of things as we think we are.

Friday night ended with a fun barbeque with various CEF board members. It’s exciting to see the board getting to interact with the young adults and see more of the process that goes into ministry for the summer.

The team has continued to learn and build as a lot of Saturday was spent learning each person’s Spiritual gift and personality. As we learned more about each other we learned how to better help one another and how to help the teenagers at CYIA.

The process continued as we learned what a well functioning team looks like and how we can better improve and work towards a common goal this summer.

In the middle of all this learning, the interns and Leaders in Training have been studying hard and working to do practicums so they can be prepared to help the CYIAers this summer.

Just when we think we have it all figured out there’s always something else that we need to learn. It has been encouraging to see the enthusiasm each person has to grow this summer and to discover where God wants us to be.
