The last four months have gone by much quicker than I thought they would. It honestly feels like just yesterday I was packing bags bigger than me to send to Uganda! Now four months later, my internship is coming to a close and I am so thankful for all that I’ve learned and that I’ve gotten to be a part of Project Orphans in such amazing ways. I have not only had to force my comfort zone to stretch out a little more, but I have also had the opportunity to learn about very practical details that go into running a non-profit.
Everyone knows there is a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes to make the mission of an organization happen, but there are just so many small things that encompass a lot of effort and actually bring the dream to life that we do not think about. For me, building this kind of knowledge and experience is super important because of my major. On another note, it is not every day you get to witness someone living out a vision God has put in their heart to touch the lives of so many others, much less have the opportunity to share a small part of it with them.
I am so beyond thankful for my time and place at Project Orphans this semester! It has made the semester exciting and I have built up skills and relationships I will probably carry with me for the rest of my life. The amount of love and genuineness that fuel the work of this organization is amazing. I mean this, because it takes a lot to sustain what Project Orphans is accomplishing in such an honorable and sincere way. I cannot wait to see what God has in store for them in the future!
In the meantime, it has been so wonderful to share this piece of my journey with everyone and I wish you all the best,
Taylor, Project Orphans Inter Fall 2016
