We have been blessed to have four young ladies from out of state join our team here for 10 weeks as “Bright Lights Interns.” It’s been fun to get to know each of them, and I’ve already been blessed by their friendship.

Some of the projects they’ve been working on in the afternoons this week have included writing and recording testimonies for the Bright Lights Set 7 CD, planning the lesson and activity for the next Bright Lights meeting, working on sending a mailing out regarding upcoming conferences, shrink-wrapping and labeling, proofreading new resources, packing orders, and other misc. things.

The mornings are spent in personal study time, training videos, reading assignments, memorizing Colossians, and other things like that.

Saturday we took off to head to the mall to do some witnessing. It was an exciting afternoon and we were very encouraged by some of the “Divine Encounters” the Lord arranged.

  1. WHOOHOO! We interns made the front page of Grace’s blog! YES!

    It’s been so much fun working with you all so far. I’m learning so much, and loving all that God has been teaching me here at Bright Lights.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for welcome us, all four of us, into your lives for the next 10-11 weeks. 🙂

  2. Dear Grace,
    I’ve been reading your blog for quite some time and I have a question: How do you start witnessing conversations?
    Love from a a sister in Christ

  3. Hi Grace!
    It’s always so nice to hear the news from the office! Seeing the pictures and reading the captions makes the desire to come and intern really strong! {sigh}
    Looking forward to seeing you and Sarah and meeting the interns @ Midwest Homeschool Convention 😀

  4. Yay! I’ve been wondering when you were going to introduce your interns! 🙂
    Bailey, Emily, Kelsey and Kristen, I’m praying for you! May the Lord bless as you study and serve!
    Love in the Lord,

  5. I love seeing all these pictures, thank you for sharing! What a wonderful time of growing and serving, it looks like you are all having a great time. Maybe someday I’ll get to do that. 🙂

    Blessings,

  6. Cara,
    I know the question was for Grace, but I really wanted to mention a great book on witnessing, “One Thing You Can’t Do In Heaven” by Mark Cahill. Thanks!

  7. Hi Cara!
    That’s a great question. I am sorry about the delay in responding. Yes, Mark Cahill’s book is an excellent resource.
    I often start with something like this “Hey, I’m here at the mall today talking to people about what they believe–would you be willing to answer a few questions?” Or “Hey, can I ask you an interesting question? What do you think happens when someone dies?” or “Hey I’m working on a little project learning what others believe. Would you mind if I asked you a few questions?”
    I think maybe I’ll do a blog post on this topic (how to start conversations) because it’s such a common question.
    God bless you!
    Grace
