Wow, this year has passed by so fast: 2 summers as an intern, senior year of college, a graduation, and now on August 20th I will be leaving for my year of volunteer service. Where has the time gone?
I will be doing my year of service as a Young Adult Volunteer through the Presbyterian Church U.S.A. in Belfast, Northern Ireland. I will be volunteering at East Belfast Mission, which is a congregation and a social-outreach center of the Methodist Church. They have a particular emphasis on children and youth ministry plus a Friendship Circle for older adults. I might also experience cross-community work with a nearby Nationalist/Catholic district.
For this experience I need to raise $8,000 but I am a little over halfway there. If you would like to give a financial donation please go to my blog and follow the directions. I also need support through prayers and people taking interest in what I am doing. Please follow my blog as I update it throughout the year: kathryninbelfast.blogspot.com
I would like to say thank you for letting me be your intern the last two summers. I have learned a lot about myself and what I would like to continue that in the coming years. God Bless!
