My name is Monica Brown. I am an intern at The Bridge Teen Challenge and have been in ELP for several months. Since being in ELP, I have learned many things. It has helped me see where I am spiritually and how to grow in my relationship with God. I have learned many tools and ways to be a good leader and server of God. ELP has shown me the kind of person I want to be in my ministry and what areas I would best be able to serve as well. It has also given me motivation in my walk to know who I am as a leader in Christ and in Teen Challenge. I have learned how to have compassion and love for others in need and women who come into Teen Challenge. My love relationship I have been able to build with God has helped me love others. I have learned that God is number one no matter what. Being a leader in Teen Challenge you can’t be selfish, prideful, or have no fear. You must be willing to work together with others at being a team and having a vision to accomplish anything. ELP has helped me grow so much as a student, an intern, a woman of God, a mother, and in my life. My life now will be to lead like Jesus.
