When were you a Cultivate intern?

I was an intern during the January-March 2019 and the next track after that, June-July 2019


How did God lead and call you to this internship program?

God led me to this internship through my leader who was also an intern during the first track.


How is God working in your life today?

God is so amazing and powerful in my life. I am now working as a National Field Coordinator at OneHope Philippines. I conduct trainings and do book distributions. In my church, I am part of our leadership team as a youth leader, campus director, and social media coordinator. I’m also a discipler who is leading and helping young people to embrace their calling in advancing the kingdom of God.  


Is there a Bible verse that resonates strongly with you during the internship?

Isaiah 43:18-19 really speaks to me. It says, “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”


It really helped me see the move of God in new and different ways. 


What are you going to tell those young emerging leaders who are considering to apply?

You need to deny yourself. This internship is not just about you. It’s not just about your growth or self-improvement. It’s also about discovering new things about God – knowing Him deeper. Letting Him take you away from your comfort zone. And to be able to do that, you need to deny yourself. You need to deny your fears, your worries, and trust God that He will do amazing things in your life through this internship.
