What a day. The morning started out early for the counselors with a 7:15 meeting for updates. The morning started even earlier for several of our youth participating in the 5K run. Twelve hundred people showed up for the run, and we are proud to report that Shane took 4th place. Andrew Weckwerth and Stacie also finished in the top 50. We had “family” time with our small groups and discussed the meaning of Community! We quickly moved on to the topic of the day…Chosen with Others. It began with a large group (only 8000) Bible study focusing on how God walks with us in our daily life, and four youth shared their experiences about how they were chosen to carry out God’s plan in their lives. Then the youth had the opportunity to do small group sessions, take in concerts, visit vendor booths, and meet new friends from across the nation. The youth were very excited to take in the session provided by the Jesus Painter. We spent some time explaining our RAuschestertin t-shirts, but looked great as a group carrying our Minnesota Twins dressed Spiderman. This evening highlighted another “mass” event with awesome music, inspiring stories, and intriguing topics to dialogue in our small groups. The evening was energetic and provided never ending Hope in the lives of our youth. Currently our youth are participating in a rousing game of Ultimate Chicken. Any guesses on what Ultimate Chicken is? Continued blessings from Florida. Please keep the youth and the chaperones in your prayers.
