I spent 3 months in Grenada-- it was absolutely amazing and I can best describe my time there in one word: growth.
First off, Grenada is nothing like the United States so it was a time for me to engage, learn and serve in a different culture. But ultimately my time spent in Grenada was a time of growth with the Lord. It was a time the Holy Spirit used for me to begin to understand His wonderful goodness and amazing love and power. I can't begin to explain just how awesome this internship was, and how important it was for me to answer this call to go.
This internship was more than just "an experience"... it was a surrender to God. Through this internship I began the long journey of what it actually means to serve and be used by the Holy Spirit. A letting go of things that didn't belong in the void in my heart, and replacing them with Jesus Christ.
Being an intern was such a great opportunity to learn about culture and ministry. The biggest thing that impacted me was that, being on the mission field in a foreign country, I was removed from all of my American comforts and distractions. Because of that, I had the opportunity to connect and grow with God more than ever before. A lot of that had to do with the fact that I had to trust Him in ways I never really had to before.
I also had an unbelievable experience just by living with a missionary family (and the team work and community that comes along with that). One of my favorite aspects of being an intern was being part of a team and connected to a family who is sowing seeds of friendship and love into their community for Christ. And it was awesome getting the chance to support and strengthen an ongoing and passionate ministry.

Fact is, being in Grenada transformed us. It was an awesome experience and we came home with a renewed heart and focus to reach others for Christ and to see God move in mighty ways.
They did a great job mentoring us and providing opportunities for us to learn how to connect with God and minister in His gifts. A big part of the internship was also the cross-cultural training-- which radically changed our view of how to successfully serve on the mission field.
We love the people of Grenada, the mission, and the lessons we learned. And we are honored to be able to continue to go back because of how deep God has rooted Grenada in our hearts.
