2013 Intern Highlight – Dakota Pott

2013 Intern Highlight – Dakota Pott

My experience with Artios Outpost this Summer was unforgettable. God really spoke to me through our awesome staff and talented campers. I discovered a lot about myself and learned more from the campers than they learned from me! This year, we had some unique challenges like sickness, Windy’s (one of our director’s) pregnancy, and injuries, but the outcome was well worth it all. I would do it again tomorrow. I miss the constant singing, swing dancing and guacamole making. I will never forget many of the moments in my small groups where I felt that the guys really understood and contributed to our small group discussions, or in one on one solo work, where God was able to use me to encourage someone to shine on stage for the first time! I feel so blessed and thankful to have had this opportunity and will treasure the friendships with all of the interns forever. We now know SO much about each other (strengths and weaknesses) through our adventures in Colorado, discussions in casting, and prayer/worship times together. I have learned that a testimony is ever-changing, and sure enough, my testimony has changed for the better since the beginning of Outpost. One of my favorite activities at camp was doing push-ups, wall sits, and sit-ups with my small group and teaching/learning that we are so limited and that we NEED God! If you are reading this and are considering applying for this internship, I encourage you to make His agenda, your agenda. You will never regret it.

Artios Outpost…what can I say about it? Well, being an intern for Artios Outpost was more amazing than I could have ever imagined. It turned out to be the best summer of my life. An amazing part about it was that I was able to learn something from just about every aspect of the program. I was able to learn about my own walk with God by teaching his word to the campers in my small group, I learned about how to handle kids through teaching film at each camp, and I learned so much from being able to spend time in fellowship with the other interns throughout the summer. Whenever I needed someone, being able to know that someone is there for you during the camp week if you need help, was a huge blessing. The interns are always there for each other. Being able to be a part of a family like that makes this internship program just so special. And then John and Windy, though they weren’t around as much as they would have liked (due to Windy’s pregnancy), I was still able to learn so much from them. All of that is just a part of how amazing Outpost was. It had its ups and downs as any kind of summer long experience will. There weren’t many downs, but still a couple. That shows just how amazing the experience was. I miss every little thing about it even those few trials that I went through because all in all it was a life changing experience. One that I wouldn’t trade for the world. And if given the opportunity, I’d be a part of this program again in a heartbeat. God works in every single person that goes through this program. I’ve seen it in the past teams… I’ve seen it in this year’s team… and I have in it in my own life. That is why I would recommend this program to anyone who is up for it. It will not be the easiest thing to do, but God really does provide us with everything we need, and with two directors in John and Windy who know just how to teach every intern exactly what they need.
