Rodney Howard Browne stated that when I began internship I was slightly worried at where I would fit in and how I would adapt to everything. I’m glad to say, being an intern is an honor and a privilege and I take it very seriously. My first week I did a lot of administration work which was good. I probably filed hundreds of papers, and there was still a pile left! I enjoyed working in the River Bible Institute office in the Great Awakening Tour.
The second week I was given an assignment to get some perks for all the students coming in, for example student discounts and deals. That turned out to be awesome, and there was much fruit from it. Just finishing the project yesterday, I can say it was very successful and I’m excited to get more discounts for our students through out the year. As an intern you are required to be on the offering schedule. I had no idea what this meant until a couple weeks into the internship.
Rodney Howard Brown says that there are multiple services throughout the week so everyone takes a shift. After the offering message is given, we collect the offerings and count them. This may seem like a small unimportant task to many but I saw it as a great honor. I feel very honored to be a part of counting the Lord’s money. It is not something small, it is a great responsibility. I have found myself counting offering almost every time since. I fully enjoy serving the Lord and counting carefully the money that has been given to Him. I’m learning that the Lord doesn’t really look when everyone is looking, but He pays close attention to the times when no ones is around, when you’re by yourself working at your own level of integrity.
