They came... and the next thing we know they are gone! Stephen and I feel like we really missed out on our interns this summer as we were away for the majority of the time. They were such a huge help to Luke and Tiffanie. Once we got back we were able to get to know them a bit better and had them over to our place for dinner and games as well. Ben left at the beginning of August, Veronika finished mid August, and Anika was the last to fly away at the end of the month. We will miss all of them. We are so grateful God sent them to us this summer.
They were all very talented. Especially with music and teaching. It was great to know that if we asked them to accomplish something it would be done to the best of their ability.
The German girls seemed to arrive just as we had more Germans attending the church in general. This really helped the new Germans to feel connected as they had someone who was speaking their heart language and could compare their experience of living in Ireland with. It was really cool to see how God coordinated it this summer.
Any of the three are definitely welcome back, anytime!
