Joins Gap Year On FacebookPosted: 31 Mar 11 | By: NG Team
Kristina heard about New Generation through Facebook.
Kristina from Germany is a part of our Media Team this year. The Media Team is a creative team of young people who invest their resources and talents to produce effective and fresh material that groups can use to reach out and make Jesus known in their schools. Here’s Kristina’s story about how she became a Teamer.
“Let’s go back to the start about how I heard about New Generation! I saw that a Teamer that I had common friends with had a Team Year promo as his profile picture on Facebook. That was the first time I heard about New Generation. I checked out the website, and to cut a long story short, I applied for the Media Team, since I’ve always been interested in media. When I came to England I didn’t really know what to expect and I wasn’t actually sure what New Generation was all about! Now I’m so excited to be here and I love what New Generation is doing and am thankful I can be a part of it. This year is exactly what I needed, and I’m really happy that God knew that before me! I’ve learnt so much…like different design programmes, improving my English, how to handle challenging situations, and even how to drive on the wrong side of the road ;). This year even changed my personality, since I feel more self-confident since I came. I’ve been growing in my relationship with God, I met a lot of different people, all the Teamers are awesome and we have great leaders. It’s so much fun being a Teamer! It’s the best year of my life so far and I’m really looking forward for the three months that are left of my gap year”.
