It's hard to believe, but the National Youth Gathering is almost upon us! In just a week we will be flying out of Charlottesville to begin our journey to Houston. Final preparations are underway! This morning, Jennie and Vicar Melissa packed and organized the first aid kits we will take with us. As a group, we are finishing the cross key chains that we will give to those we meet.
We are thrilled to announce that God has abundantly provided and we have raised almost all the money to make this trip possible. So thank you, thank you, thank you to all those who have donated in some way. From buying a donut on a Sunday morning, to hiring a crew of youth to assist with yard work or moving, your support has made this possible. We are so grateful for your partnership with us.
We have just $798.32 left to raise, which is about $66/person. If you are feeling called to contribute in some way, talk to Jennie or drop her a note. We'd be happy to plug you into this opportunity any way we can.
We are working on staying hydrated and cool this week as we brace ourselves for the heat and humidity of Houston. We are excited to see how we will experience God's love in this place and look forward to sharing the love that changes everything! We will be posting a few times a day while in Houston, so be sure to check back in for updates. We can't wait to share this experience with all of you!
