Through my summer with ACMNP I developed three particular qualities. First, God grew my gift of development. Although at the beginning of the summer I wanted to see my ideas flourish, by the end, I found more joy in seeing others use their gifts. Secondly, God grew my gift of celebration.
On a particular day, I spent most of the morning searching for a card and gift, to cheer on a team member.
I sought to recognize the gifts she had for ministry.
Third, God grew my gift of courage. I found the strength to step out and invite complete strangers to worship.

The Lord said, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
