I came back from Camden and it was hard, as always. It still is hard and I miss everyone so much and think about Camden all the time. I am trying to keep up my relationship with people I've met there.
I started my last semester at APU!!! And graduated on December 13th, 2008 with my Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration and a minor in Leadership Studies.
Above is a picture of me after the ceremony... so excited and happy. And then also a photo of me and Dr. Wallace (Jon), the President of my university.
I got to travel to Boston for my boss' wedding back in October. I had been helping plan the wedding for several months and so he flew me out to Boston to help with and attend the wedding. When in Rome... or Boston... or basically the East Coast... I decided to rent a car and drive to Camden the day after the wedding. How could I not when I was only six hours away?
I spent Sunday until early early Thursday morning. Molly came back for the year internship, so I stayed with her and her housemates in the brick house for those four days. I got to see my camp kids and spend time with the streetleaders and lots of time with Molly and it was just so amazing to be back and living in community again. Also I got to see how they run the year-round programming.
Guess what... I'm going back to Camden again...
I mean... really, it's no surprise. You had to see that coming. In a random circumstance of events and meetings, I am now the leader of the Camden Summer Missions Team from APU. I will be preparing them for the internship this summer and it is so exciting and a little bit scary (I am there leader...haha). I am so excited to really get to share my experience with these girls (we still need some guys on the team...) and to have them hopefully fall in love with Camden like I have.
I am working full-time now... as well. Thank you God and experiences of APU... I work for a non-profit missions company full-time. It reminds me a lot of Camden and Urban Promise. Because of my new job and other responsibilities of adulthood, I will not be returning to Camden as a summer intern, but doing just as I did this past summer and staying for a few weeks! I am excited either way however!!!
That is all for now. Please keep checking for future updates and any other exciting news Camden related!!!
