What I liked
It was challenging, exhilarating, and incredible. I got to lead middle and high school youth groups in rebuilding homes damaged by Hurricane Harvey with just one week of training and no prior experience, so I was able to see God stretch me and call me to beyond what I was qualified for. I got to lead chapel for and relationally pour into the youth on their mission trips, and see God’s love overflow into lives that needed it. It was harder than anything I’ve ever done before, but also wildly rewarding, and I grew a lot.
