Ski trip

So, we just got back from Colorado, Winter Park...We took 23 people, 9 parents, 2 kid sisters and 12 boys. It was soooo much fun. I haven't laughed that hard in a long time!!
I spent a whole day taking photos of the boys boarding. We did have a few accidents though! 2 broken wrists, a mild concussion, and 12 stitches...our motto became "Go Big, or Go Home...or to the infirmary". We went with Student Life, Steve Fee came out and led worship, which was wonderful and David Rhoads spoke, which was also amazing! The last day, we got to the mountain at 8:30 and skied till 3, we then waited for some stitches to get finished, and then we headed to Denver, ate, and then continued on our way! We got back to KC at about 8:00am and then we all went to work and school! We are a little crazy and I am a little tired, but here are some un-edited photos that I took of our boys!

Thanks for stopping by!

It has been a few days, and as I don't have any photos to post just yet. Let me start by saying that I hardly ever post things like this, but I feel that it is time I start! My heart is heavy and I am exhausted.

I would love to ask you all to say a prayer for the youth that Andrew and I minister to and also for Andrew and myself. As of late, Andrew and I have been bombarded by students coming to us with hearts of repentance for choices that they are making that are "not neccessarily great"...As it is a joy to us that they seek refuge in us and come to us so that we can call on the name of the Lord together, there are weeks and months that are just overwhelming. If you understand what I am saying, I just ask that you would pray for the burden that Andrew and I carry that we are trying to give to the LORD. We tell our students your guilt and shame are gone, that is the hope we have in our crucified and ressurected Lord, and yet I can't seem to let that burden go. These students are the only children I have and the love and responsibility I have for them is far greater than I could have ever imagined feeling. Please pray that the Lord would walk them through whatever He needs so that they will come to a greater understanding of why we would ever choose to give our lives to serve this Most Holy God.
So to those of you in the ministry, I will pray for you as I am sure you share this responsibility. and for those of you with kids, I will pray for you as I know that you also share this responsibilty.
We are starting a new study throughout our church on prayer and I can't wait to see the fruit that is produced!! Love to you all!
