I grew relationally and in learning to trust this summer: letting people into my heart, giving my heart more to others, allowing others to support me, and supporting them when needed.
Watching the way that the group of J-1s were all so unique, yet when they were together were able to live in unity was insightful to how God sees us, and wants all His children to live in harmony.
I was able to help others in their faith and they helped me grow as well. The relationship that I had with the J-1s only helped me to better see and understand the relationship that God has with us; how He loves, how He cares for all His children, and how much it hurt to be separated from them.
