Almost Heaven Internship--It's Official!



For quite a while, the site where I will be doing my internship has been in the works. Today, I heard officially that it's a definite GO. This is the beautiful area where I will be spending my internship year, beginning this summer. It is the town of Petersburg, WV. There are no major cities near there at all. Due west is the Grant County Airport and beyond that is the Monongahela National Forest. Wait till you see the picture with the article. It' absolutely breathtaking.

I will be working with Pr. Larry Cantu, pastor of Grace Lutheran Church in Petersburg. I am very excited about the site and about Pr. Cantu being my supervisor. Every other site and pastor I saw and interviewed with had one or maybe two things about them that interested me. This site and pastor have multiple things that excite and energize me in ministry. When I read the profile to Ray he could hardly believe it and kept saying it had my name written all over it. It was like this was custom designed for me. I am very grateful to God and to all those who helped to make this match possible.

The whole family, Ray, myself, the two dogs Amity and Abby, and our latest addition, Pokey the cat will all be going. An interesting side note, Pokey is from WV!

Anyhow, I can't help but sing along with John Denver...

I can hardly believe that it's already time for you to go on internship. Amazing!

God bless you with a great experience.

I know. I feel the same way. After Compline last night, we were talking about how sometimes it seems like we just began seminary. Now we're nearly halfway through.
