My feelings on this summer have been all over the map, from wanting to stay at home all the way to living in Vail doing paid internship type work for an event production firm. Little did I realize that a chance run in with a program director at the Christmas conference would shape the upcoming summer.
I had kept it very quite, the fact that I applied for summer project with campus crusade. Turned out that last Friday when Kyle (little brother) came to get my at school and we were sitting at culvers grabbing something to eat before heading back to the cities. Sitting there after eating, just sitting there talking my phone rang. After picking up the phone I was greeted by Adam on the other end.
Flash back one week, Adam called me up to ask some questions about the application I filled out and just to get to know me better. Some of the questions were difficult to talk about (as my past physical relationships) but it went very well. Back up to speed?
We only talked for a several minutes and it was nice to hear from him again. A couple of minutes into our conversation he let me know I had been accepted and my mind was blitzed with thoughts from everywhere. Only, solace lies in the fact that I knew from the moment I filled the application that I was going to go. This moment only aligned the truth my heart felt and knew (since I filled the application) with the disbelief my mind held.
Half of this summer will be spent in Toulouse, France doing mission work through Campus Crusade for Christ. I’ll be modifying the main site, www.paulprins.net, to hold more information and a way to contact me over the summer (assuming I have internet access and it’s at that site because the 100 spam emails a day won’t be very tempting to sift through).
Thank you for all your prayers
