In Mount Carmel for the Summer

I’m now in Mount Carmel, Illinois where I am working with the local church as their summer youth intern. Mount Carmel is a small town with a population of about 8000 people. The church has about 160 people attend on Sunday mornings for worship and there are a lot of young people who come regularly. I have a lot planned to do with the youth group here for the summer that I’m really excited about; such as, Bible studies during the week, service projects, community outreach, camp and more. The church here has been extremely loving and welcoming. I am really excited to see all that God will be doing here this summer.

While I’m here I’m still going to doing my studies with Sunset through correspondence. I will actually be starting my new class in about a week. I will be finishing the rest of my courses at Sunset this way while I am here and while I attend college after the summer.

Here a few links to videos that I uploaded on facebook of some of things that have been doing here in Mount Carmel so far. One of them is a tour of my office and the other two are from the welcome-fellowship-meal that the church had for me this past Sunday. I’m not sure if you can view these or not without being a member of facebook. Let me know if you can’t, and I’ll try to get them up online some other way. You can view the videos by just clicking on the flowing links:
