Hi, my name is Erica, I am a six-month intern with YUGO ministries. My focus area here is construction ministry.

One of the best things about being an intern is serving God in such a rewarding way. The reason I am serving is because we have an amazing God that I want to serve with all that I am, being his hands and feet.

You will grow in many unexpected ways spiritually. Sometimes house building can be physically exhausting and you might feel like you are not doing anything important.

It is during these times that God is changing and strengthening you in Him. You will be tested and changed throughout your time here.

For me, it was learning to love the people who are hard to love.

“My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.” – John 15:12

I meet and work with a lot of different people with varying personalities but through God I have learned to love when it is hard.

Another thing I learned is patience with what God has planned for me. A fun aspect of interning here, is meeting and bonding with many people from different teams every week.
