Susan: Hello, this is Susan Nisly and I am
here with Megan Campbell who is a former Service Adventure unit leader
from Jackson, Mississippi.
So, Megan I'm wondering if you could tell me about something that you learned during your experience with service Adventure.
Something I think that I learned over the year was what it means to
honor others and what it means to honor Christ in your actions and
words. I think with every service year comes challenges and comes
joys. And there are times where it's easy to know what to say and what
to do and then there are times where you really need to learn to seek
counsel and to pray and to be able to actually solve conflict and sit
down with people - in love - and try and work towards something that is
good for the whole community as a whole.
And so I think I learned
about myself and my housemates ways that perhaps in the past I was not
as honoring as I could have been and ways that I can be exponentially
more honoring towards others.
Nice. Do you have any
stories of like something that was either a highlight of your experience
or something that brought you joy as a part of the service Adventure
One of our favorite weekends together we went
to Pine Lake Fellowship Camp in Meridian, Mississippi, which is about an
hour and a half east of Jackson. And just being out of the city was
good and we went on walks and we did a lot of things outside and our
German participant was super excited to be able to make stick bread with
It was fun and it was silly it was just really good and we just literally sat by the fire for
hours and then we realized that we could see the stars because you
cannot see them in city. So we just laid there and talked and hung out
and got to tell other people what Service Adventure was and what it was
about and that was just a really big blessing of that whole weekend to
spend with them.
I would say when I went to visit you guys
there was lots of laughter and joy whether it was cooking together or
going to Dairy Queen. I will always think of that. I attribute that to
a leader setting a tone for that sort of thing.
It was a really good year.
