Venture was this weekend. It's an annual event at my church, when middle school & high school students spend the weekend learning, spending time in discussion & serving the community. The students stay in various church members homes. This is my 4th year to host teenagers and I have to say, it was the best.
Joel Warren's band Awaken, lead worship this weekend. It brought back such fun memories of MY OWN high school years listening to Joel. Am so thankful for the memories!
Mike Satterfield spoke. He was smart, charismatic, funny & def dynamic!
Layton waiting to leave. He was totally part of the group, those 11th grade boys loved him and def let him into the "nook". He was their shadow from Friday 7pm until Sunday at noon. It takes a lot to "break into" Laytons heart, but when he loves, he L--O--V--E--S, he loved those boys this weekend, and they loved him. He didn't want to leave. Angie gave him her phone to occupy him while we said our good-bye's.
I hate to play favorites, but this weekend is my favorite of 2011 so far.
