It is over, the internship is now completed. The interns leave the Philippines in a few hours, and I will finally be reunited with my family soon after.

This has been the most challenging of times, especially since I have been away from the people I love the most for so long. The only thing that would keep me away from my family like this is my purpose. This is my purpose, to serve others, to help others grow, to help students grow into full-time missionaries.

The biggest thing I have learned from this experience (other than to never be away from my family this long again) is that EVERYTHING can be a learning experience. Every situation, every problem, every challenge, can be an opportunity to grow. I hope I take this lesson and apply it to the rest of my life.

It has been an honor to serve these incredible interns--now missionaries. Now it's time to be with my family.


  1. so excited you get to be reunited w/ your sweet wonderful family!

  2. Glad to hear you'll be back with the family soon!
