Below is an update from Fall Intern Kate. Don’t forget we’re currently accepting applications for next Spring… Apps are due November 8th!
Kate here again to give you guys a little recap of the past few weeks in the Mocha Club offices! The interns have been working hard, helping to keep things up and running, and we want to make sure you feel as included as we do. I think I speak for all of us when I say that we feel continually blessed to have this opportunity to be a part of such an incredible organization that does little things each day to make big differences. As the interns, we take care of a lot of the behind the scenes tasks, like sending out your merch orders, calling to update member accounts, adding new members to our system, and, afterwards, helping those people stay informed and involved.
Since Jimmy Needham and Matt Wertz have been on tour the past couple of months, we’ve gotten these lovely little bundles of new sign ups every week or so from the various shows that they represented us at. Those bundles of joy mean more computer work for us, but more help to our beautiful brothers and sisters overseas, so we’re happy to do it. Oftentimes, the most rewarding part of the work we do is the knowledge that without people like us to do the little things, the big things wouldn’t be possible. And we’ve been sending personal THANK YOU postcards to everybody who has joined from the tours this Fall!
Currently in the works are some awesome new pieces of merch that we’re working on the show you guys before the holidays. I can’t say exactly what they’ll be yet, but I can tell you that you’ll like them!
In other news, fall’s officially here (we have the temperatures to prove it), so our wardrobes have gotten a little update with some longer sleeves and warmer scarves, and our main meeting room has gotten a little cozier, too. Last week some volunteers came and helped us paint our previously tricolored, slightly mismatched walls a nice bright gray color. Slowly but surely we’re getting a little more at home in our new office space, and everyone’s loved the changes.
There’ll be more updates to come as we get closer to the holidays, but in the meantime, stay cozy, stay thankful, and, most of all, stay tuned. We’ll share again soon!
Love and blessings,
