 iQuest made it through Summer 2020…

For the past 18 plus years, ACE has enjoyed having many young adults ranging from 18 to 26 spend their summers to help us out in Jamaica. This program, called iQuest, has turned out to be one of the best “pauses” in a young adult’s life ever. This past year, we opened up our intern application process in October 2019. Usually, we have anywhere from six to eight immediate applicants going on to our website. Not this time. Instead we had three, then two, then one. We were scratching our heads wondering what was going on.

God knew what was coming… and, in usual style, we went along.

Moving forward, Covid became a popular topic after the first of the year. One by one, all our volunteer teams cancelled for the summer. But, there was one young man who didn’t cancel, didn’t back away and in fact kept pushing forward to come be an Intern for the summer.

Meet Abe. Abe came from Indiana in May and was ready to meet any challenge ACE had for him. With our own Super Student, Tahj, as the house father, Abe stayed with Anthony and Tahj at the Campus this summer. We called it the Jamaican Guys Club and it worked! Not only has Abe developed muscle, but he has developed a love for his new home in Jamaica. Like most interns who complete the Leadership Course, we hope he’ll always consider this his “go to” spot when he needs a getaway from life in the U.S.

ACE is offering iQuest intern programs all year long in 2020. Look at your calendar and see if ACE fits into your life for that much needed “pause”.

Over the many decades of serving at ACE, I personally have been blessed to get to know so many young adults who have given their summers to serve with ACE, growing so much in the process. You see, ACE isn’t just about spending your summer in Jamaica, it’s about pushing yourself beyond your comfort zone. It’s about learning how to do something you never thought you could manage and becoming good at it. iQuest is about making friendships that last a lifetime, and, most of all, it’s about understanding how God can use you in ways you never thought possible to reach the hearts of others.

Dates for iQuest 2020 are May 30th through August 12th. It might be the only time in your lifetime you have the time to invest in you!! Go online and sign up for iQuest 2020 and make this summer your time!
