As you may know if you’ve been following this blog for a while, I am completely and utterly obsessed with Germany. I spent all last school year studying in Heidelberg, Germany, then stayed for the summer to work as an Au Pair and youth intern in Hildesheim, Germany. I’ve since continued studying the language this year with my German minor, and my passion for the country and its people has only continued to grow.
So…I’ve decided to return this summer! I will be interning with a church in Frankfurt called MosaikKirche. They work quite a bit with refugees and immigrants in the city as well as children, youth and young adults. I will be partnering with them in all of these areas– teaching basic German and English, preparing sunday school lessons, planning summer events, etc. I can’t wait! My grandpa lives just outside Frankfurt so I will have the chance to see him a few times, as well as to visit my friends in Heidelberg and Hildesheim. But perhaps the part I’m most excited about is that on my flight home I have a two day layover in Iceland! I have always dreamed of exploring this magic little island, and now’s my chance!
I leave May 24th–just three short weeks away! There’s a lot to do between now and then, but I feel so blessed and confident that this is where I’m called to serve this summer. And of course I’ll be blogging through out the whole experience, so stay tuned!
