Tuesday, Today started of a bit slow. I arrived at my practicum, and my field instructor was running a little late. The church is constantly under tight security and since I am only going to be here for ten weeks there no need for me to receive a key. So I waited for my supervisor in my car in the parking lot in the back of the church. He told me to arrive at eight o look, but he always at least five minutes late. After about six minutes of waiting, he arrived in his golden 2008 Chevy Malibu. As soon as he parked, he immediately got out of the car and said good morning to me.

Nobody came through, though, after about two minutes of waiting we proceeded to his office. We sat down and spoke about my career and where I want to ebin the next five yeas. I didn’t want to reveal my plan to him though, because I don’t really car for people reflection about my career paths in life.

Jeff spends most of his day conducting counseling session with some of the members of the church. During my data collection, I had several people ask who I was? Which is a common question for a phone conversation? I told them that I was Jeff Warner’s assistant. They kept asking me question such as how long have I been at the church and where do I sit at during the service. I didn’t want to answer their questions because I don’t actually go to the church and I was afraid that if they heard that it might detracted them from coming to join the church, I mean it makes no sense for me to call them and ask them to join the church when I don’t even go their.
