Life as a Utility

So I am here in Philidelphia with the Philly Youthworks team. I am here for now, who knows when or where I will go next. It is exciting, but at the same time a little scary.

I was talking to my friend that I was on staff with last summer in Oklahoma and he said that he was excited for me to get a permanent placement and get to know my staff and community, but I would be excited to stay as utility and move around, but the only down side is that I wouldn't get close with one group of people really well to share my summer its a catch 22. Whatever happens I know that God has it all planned ou for me, so I am trusting he has me everywhere and anywhere I am going to go!

I'm exciting I get to be the extra help to the staff (if I don't get placed in a position). I know how stressful it can be to have to prep a site a do your own personal stuff for your position and I can help relieve some of that stress or even during the summer with the basic day to day things that can get overwhelming. I hope that I can do that for the staff I am a utility for.

Well, off to help Philly with their site! I'll post back soon, especially if I am somewhere else!

  1. That's so exciting! Hope things continue to go well, I'm sure wherever you will be your willing heart and helpful hands will be much appreciated! You might not get to know the staffs and communities as well, but it could mean more time to spend one on one with the youth which is positive! Keep me updated lady, and I'm so glad you met Courtney! She is one of my favorite people.
