Hello, it’s me again! I don’t know if you remember me, but I'm Natsalla. I was an intern last year!
Red hair? In love with a goat from Keney Park? No? Okay… well, allow me to reintroduce myself. I’m Natsalla, and this year I'm an intern supervisor! Moving up in the chain. Here I am…
Being an intern supervisor this year was a blast! I loved interacting with all the students and leaders. This summer I was able to connect with everyone on a more personal and spiritual level.
This summer was definitely full of opportunities to grow, and that’s exactly what I did!
I grew mentally...
And most importantly, in my faith...
This summer, in any times of confusion or despair or even gratitude I found that I just continued praying and talking with God, and that's definitely something I struggled to do before.
This summer, I was able to see God move in my team’s life and in mine and I was just so grateful to have been able to experience God’s love, through the endless nights of just talking and relying on each other. It was honestly a dream!
It was amazing to be able to be personal with each other and our struggles. We were able to confide in each other and push each other closer to God. I found that this summer was a spiritual awakening. Not only in my personal life but in everyone who was lucky enough to be in arms reach of The Hartford Project.
God definitely made a way this summer in our hearts and with endless surprises along the way.
I'm tremendously thankful, and I’m happy to see what God has in store for me this upcoming school year. I can't wait to continue to learn more about myself and the plan that God calls me to do.
I couldn’t have grown this summer without the love and support of all the people around me and I’m so grateful for everyone who was there to help me through my spiritual warfare. Although this summer wasn't what I expected, there's nothing I would change about it because God places in our hearts and lives what he desires for us to grow in, and let me tell you… this summer was definitely my summer of growth, and I’m in awe of the person that I am becoming because of God. Can’t wait to see what’s next in my walk of faith!
But what can I say?
That’s all for now folks!
