Tuesday, June 12 (Session 2, Day 10)
Never a dull day at Summit! It’s the second week, and things are moving along quickly. We just finished up the Manference and Feminar, which is where we split up into guys and gals and talk about our responsibilities for our respective gender. After which we broke into small groups and continued the discussion. This is my first year on staff so it is interesting to see things from the other side. It is completely different being on staff as opposed to a student, which I was for three years in a row. Time that would usually be spent in lectures is spent either working or talking with the other staff. I’m in the afternoon kitchen which means I get to help make the food. The head chef here is really talented, and he can work wonders with the food. He’s even offering to give cooking lessons for the auction.
Speaking of that, the auction is tomorrow night! As a student this was by far one of my favorite times at Summit. I’m very thankful to be taking charge of the Sudan Project this summer and getting to help run the auction. The Sudan Project is something that is very close to Summit’s heart. Every session, we have a staff auction. The staff will auction off certain things such as food or special skills to the students. We then use the money made from the auction to buy bibles and other necessary items for the people of the Sudan. It’s a lot of fun and everyone really gets into it. I’m looking forward to tomorrow night!
Overall, my Summit experience has been amazing. I have learned so much over the past month and a half, and it is going by much too fast. God is good. Life is good. Goodnight to all, and God bless.
