Believe


So today is the day we've been counting down to in our youth group! We're heading out for a road trip to a Youth Conference called "Believe" that is in Cincinnati.


The kids look so forward to it & this will be my third year going with them. I think I get just as excited as the kids do. Why? There's just nothing like seeing thousands of youth praising God & just for 2 days, dedicating themselves to nothing but hearing & learning about Him!


Last year, they had all the kid just bow on their knees in prayer... I would bet most youth have never really done that since they were little & maybe knelt by their bed with parents... you could hear sniffling & tear flowing all over the arena in just a matter of moments...the way you can feel Christ with you in those moments - I'm sure its overwhelming for some of these kids.


So I ask you all to pray for us! We have 23 kids & 6 adults going... all awesome, fun & wonderful... I'm expecting great things from God - as always!


Pray for safety, pray for these kids hearts & minds to be open to what they hear!


I'm sure I'll have a load full of stories & pictures when we return LATE Saturday night...these trips are known for not alot of sleep so REALLY pray for the adults!


Time to BELIEVE!
