TURN YOUR EYES
As I look back at all the retreat events throughout my experience at Church Everyday. I am able to see how much I’ve changed over the years. A part of me wants to return to the juvenility of days. To remember the times I fell asleep during the sermon or maybe that one time I was completely off-tune during worship. Or maybe those times when I was mad at God so I didn’t participate during retreat worship. I become embarassed by my own actions but I look at myself now and see how much stronger my relationship with God has gotten.I’ve come to see how much those simple retreats have shaped my life.Spending the nights in cabins, praying for my brothers and sisters, and just becoming closer with God became some of the happiest days of my life. I am able to understand that these moments and events are the most cherished and valuable with my brothers and sisters. The moments that were fleeting, temporary, and rare.
Tell us about your experience in Dwelling Place and how you feel about leaving to go to college? The time I spent in DP was probably the time that helped me mature the most. The leaders of DP taught me how to become a leader as well as spiritual maturity. A lot has changed in one year but I’m glad that at least I got to spend three of the four years under solid leaders. As for leaving, I’m glad to be leaving, not because of the changes, which does have a small part of it, but more because I want to experience something new. It’s time for me to move on now, and I’m excited for the future. Of course I’ll miss the constant presence of Everyday somewhat, but I’m more excited to face new challenges away from home. -Caleb Lee
I walked into this ministry for the first time afraid of being alone or unaccepted. But as I came out every Sunday and to more events, I quickly bonded with the other high schoolers. We journeyed throughout high school together helping our peers; we helped each other throughout our hardships and supported one another’s spiritual growth. We bonded so well and became a close family that we could all rely on. Even though I’m leaving now, I will always remember and cherish the friendships and memories that I have made.
Q- What will you miss most about Church Everyday? A- It’s got to be all my brothers and
sisters. I will miss every single one of you. -Nick Ryu
â€œDuring my years at dp, i can definitely say that i discovered God in many new ways, some really unexpected and surprising. to say that it was all smooth sailing would be a lie, but i was able to endure it and grow stronger in my faith through the mentors and friends God had given me. going off to college is bittersweet, im sad about not seeing my friends anymore and its going to feel weird without them,but im excited about the future and what God has planned for me.â€?
Love came down
Being a young adult, I believed that I had experienced just about everything and more at the young age I am at. But God seemed to have given me more eye opening opportunities and I have reached a new level of stability, of wholesomeness. Mission trips have humbled me to the highest degree and shined an entirely new light on me. I was able to witness such beautiful and gratifying moments while I built houses for people who couldnâ€™t afford it. To see the joy on their faces and their gratefulness for the small little things in life, to hold hands and pray, to have a family, and just to shake hands. I learned that everything is so valuable. Every simple thing is a gift from God, and as long as you know how, you can cherish it and live with gratitude. These missions trips were able to help me feel alive and learn that I am a incredibly blessed child of God.
Timothy Ryu, What have you learned throughout your experience in Dwelling Place, and what will you carry on as you leave to go to college?
