This year we have 6 interns for Fusion Slovakia! This is amazing to have so many people interested in serving here! I am thankful to have two of the interns leading the group rather than me. I used to lead the intern teams in Slovakia, it was not something that I enjoyed doing. This summer we decided that our extended intern Abby and one other guy Brayden were capable to lead the interns. This puts me in a supervisor role, rather than direct leading. I enjoy this much more.
Every year the interns start the summer with an Amazing race, yes like the show. They run the race together, building the relationship and camaraderie of the team. This is really a great opportunity to see how they react to one another as they are put into stressful situations together. The race was in Prague this year. I went there to help with the race and also to see how Abby and Brayden were leading, and how the team was doing. They really did a great job. I was excited to see how they worked together and really enjoyed themselves. I am excited to see how they work together this summer.
During the intern training, I was asked to lead one of the seminars. I love whenever I have the opportunity to speak in front of people. It is something that brings me a lot of energy and joy. This year I was asked to speak about how to rest well as you serve. I think this was a good topic for most of the interns. I think they also appreciated that they were told to take rest. I think we often have the false impression that missions is none stop and you can somehow manage to go for months without rest. Although we have the Holy Spirit, we are also humans and need rest! Pray for the interns this summer, that they will serve and rest well!
