The Time to Leave is Here!

May 30, 2013 | Sarah Martin

My friend Lauren and I get the amazing privilege of volunteering with ACMNP at Custer State Park this summer, and the time to leave is actually here! All the talk about going, all the packing (that I just started yesterday), all the preparation and the freak-out’s, they were all constant reminders that leaving for the summer was coming up just around the corner. Regardless of the reminders, nothing hit me like waking up today and knowing that I leave tomorrow.

While it’s hard not to have expectations for the summer, I am trying my absolute best to walk into this opportunity with none. Expectations, in my experience, often leave me trying to control situations, which in turn keep God pretty limited in my life. The only thing I am expecting is for God to show up. I can expect that and wait in faith because He is good, beyond good, and faithful. While I’m anxious, I am trusting. The Lord has big plans for Sylvan Lake this summer and I can’t wait to experience it!

"ACMNP provided me with the opportunity to share my faith in the day-to-day struggles of seasonal employment working, living, and sharing a bathroom with people from all over the world. It was a blessing to see how the differences in personality and background within our ministry team allowed us to connect better with different co-workers and guests."
