Since I have been writing so much lately about what has been on my heart and not so much about what it is I have been doing I am sure there are those of you out there a little curious of my whereabouts. Well you're in luck, this blog is going to give a brief overview of what I have been doing and what is going to be happening next month.
Since FCM ended in March I have been on the construction staff here on the YWAM campus in Kona. Currently I am working on a two story dorm building on campus that is located right across from my room. This is such a blessing because it literally takes about 5 seconds to walk from my bed to work in the morning, a great commute! Over the past two months I have been learning a lot and am really blown away by the amount of growth I've experienced. I worked with an electrician for a few weeks and learned how to run conduit through a building, as well as running fire wire from each smoke detector to the fire box at the end of our building. During this time I have also had the chance to grow in leadership; I am the work duty coordinator for the current DTS students who work with me, which means I'm their boss. Having this opportunity has helped me to better learn to delegate and given me a chance to lead by myself in a different circumstance than I'm used to. It is nothing like leading an outreach team where you have your team with you constantly and it is easy to lead them because you have relationship. I am also learning a lot about discipleship through having these work duty students, the most profound thing that has been revealed to me is -I have to model and not teach. I can tell them to pull weeds every work duty, but until I am willing to get down there and pull the weeds with them they are not going to hold the same amount of respect or follow my instruction the same way. This translates a lot into discipleship; we must model ourselves to others if we expect them to listen when we ask them or tell them to do something.
Onto the next month! Starting on June 2nd the Awaken staff is going to be having staff training for the DTS this summer. I am really looking forward to having all of the staff back and pursuing the Lord together. During this time we are going to be spending a lot of time together bonding, praying, calling students, etc . . . It is going to be a divine time for sure and there is so much expectancy in my heart for what lies ahead. If you have any questions or would like to know more about what I have been doing or will be doing in the next few months, please email me at Cbergus@gmail.com I would love to hear from you.
