Welcome back Kotter (aka interns)
This is the first week for our new interns with Healing Place School of Ministry. We have 16 fresh and eager students who have made the decision to spend the next nine months living, breathing and eating servanthood. They will study, serve, outreach, serve, worship and serve some more. They will get to sleep some too, but I think that's scheduled for some time in March. I had an opportunity to hang out with them a little bit last night at one of their services and I am so excited about what God is doing with the next generation. What a privilege to watch these young people running hard after God.
Lance brought an incredible word for us about the culture of Healing Place Church. My two favorite points: 1. Stay Flexible and you won't get bent out of shape. 2. The difference between where you are and where God wants you is pain tolerance. I love that! (Actually, I like it better in theory than in real-life...it always hurts less in theory.)
So please put the interns on your prayer list and encourage them whenever you see them. This next year will be tough battle for many of them; we don't want them feeling like they're in it alone. All glory to God!
