Summers at Star Lake camp and why I love it: Although I have never worked at Star Lake, my brother, cousin and uncle & aunt have worked there and they absolutely love it. I think it is going to be fantastic!
Favorite part of the OTHERS mission and why (Offering True Hope, godly Relationships, dynamic Events, biblical Salvation): HOPE: I once heard a sermon from First Corinthians 13: 13 which says: "For now there are faith, hope, and love..." The person spoke about our Faith in God and our Love for others but when he spoke about hope he spoke of the desperation people are in in their lives and have lost all hope of a future. I want to bring hope to hopeless people.
Hobbies: I like to run, read, play basketball, watch the Sixers beat the Celtics, laugh, and hang out with cool people!
Interesting fact about yourself: I spent last summer on the other side of the world (New Zealand). When it is night here; it is daytime there, when it is summer here; it is winter there. It was fun!
Future Plans or Goals: I am going to be a teacher.
