James is a senior at Wisconsin Lutheran High School, Milwaukee, WI.
This summer was my first summer with Chaplains in Schools, and I really enjoyed it. I had the opportunity to assist several other chaplains by helping make phone calls home to parents of children in summer school who speak Spanish. These phone calls were made to see how parents thought that summer school was going and to see if they would be interested in a Bible study or baptism. I made many positive phone calls where I was able to have a good conversation with the parents of a student. I was even able to pass on information to Pastor Steinberg for a family interested in baptism. When I was not making phone calls, I was helping assist summer schools in whatever way I was needed. This was very fulfilling for me as I liked being able to help the children in summer school. I am thankful for the opportunity to work as a chaplain, and look forward to serving again next summer as a chaplain.
