Well, we made it! It was a great trip! It’s pretty tough to beat lunch at Labert’s Cafe followed up by a night of worship at MOVE. Labert’s was a great experience and I was really proud of our group for only dropping 6-7 rolls! I assumed we’d drop at least twice as many. But catch them they did and everyone seemed to have a good time.
When we arrived at Windermere Conference Center, we got registered and checked in to our dorms. All 4 of us guys are rooming together and the girls are 8 to a room. Yesterday opened with a study of Samuel, who heard God speak but did not recognize it was Him. When he finally realized that God was speaking to him, he answered God by saying, “Speak, for your servant is listening.” The call yesterday was simply to listen to what God was calling students to this week and to have the boldness to answer that call.
Today is all about Grace. About God using the prostitute, Rehab, to bring about his purposes. Her story is in the book of Joshua, she is also mentioned in the lineage of Jesus in Matthew 1, and is the only woman mentioned in the “Hall of Faith” (Hebrews 11).
Here are 2 things I’ve learned since we’ve left:
1: when food is on the line, out HS youth group can turn on the athleticism.
2: no matter how much someone insists that they don’t like Ke$ha, play one of her songs with huge subs and a gigantic sound system, and that person will dance their tail feathers off.
That is all. I love you, and thanks for stopping by. More updates to come.
