Then: covecrest session 2 in 2010…best session ever!!! haha
Now: I am currently in my second year at the ohio state university. my major is a toss up right now so we will see where God calls me. i am also strongly discerning a covecrest missionn year so anyone who had the patience and is still with me, pleas pray for my vocation!!!
Would you do it again? it was honestly my favorite thing ive ever done…ever. the staffers i serverd with, the missionaries that i served with, all of the different teens, musicians, clergy, and everyone else that came it was beyond explanation. its one of those things that u have to do and go in with zero expectations and just have an open heart/mind to whatever God is calling you to. when it comes to doing it again I always instantly say “well duh, of course” but i do not think that i would do it again not because i didnt like it, quite the contrary, but the experiences that i had and the people i served with. now offense to any other staffer sessions but after serving with my ohana from session 2 i dont think i could do it with any other group of people haha. also if i did it again id ask for some1 to knock me upside the head really hard so i would forget the first time (only temporarily! although i dont think i could forget that no matter how hard i try haha) so that i could “participate and not anticipate” hahaha. but really i dont think i would do it again because of how unique a situation it is. dont get take this wrong tho, i still consider those 6 weeks above and beyond anything else in my life. well except maybe being born…although i dont remember that.
Why should a college student consider applying to be summer missionary at camp? any college student would agree that college isnt always the best place for a young catholic to grow in one’s faith life. ever wanna just get away from it all and go somewhere thats basically heaven on earth??? well have we got a place for you! covecrest ruined my life and i love it! haha. freshman year of college was rough on my faith life to say the least. i had been a teen leader in my lifeteen all during highschool and thought that taking my faith to college would not be too too hard. well i was wrong hahaha. God kept hinting that i should turn in a summer staff app and about the 849876541321354616403003044610 hint, i did. i am not at all lying when i say that covecrest changed my life. if u have not been on summer staff then i cannot even begin to scratch the surface on how it changed my life and what ist like being a staffer. in retospect i am glad i had no clue how camp worked or what a summer staffer did haha. a few staffers i served with were campers before hand and loved it too tho so any1 can be a staffer u just have to be open.
