Can I get an AMEN!

I have been on a life high since returning from Gatlinburg with the youth group. I am so very proud of them! We had 6 give their lives to Christ in Gatlinburg and one more Sunday night! HALLELUHAH!!! These kids are so brave to step up and do what God wants them to do when the world around them says otherwise. These kids are my heros. They make me feel ashamed of myself for not listening to God when He asks something of me. Isn't it ironic that through these wonderful teenagers, God has worked on me, a 31 y.o. mother of two, who has been a Chrisitian half of her life? I am going to try to be a better Christian not only for the Lord, but for these kids who now need positive role models more than ever. And, I call on all of you to do the same. They need all the love, support, and prayers we can give them!
Here are a few pics from the trip:

I am still smiling thinking about those kids. They are really something! God has a big plan for the youth group. I can't wait to see what He does next!

We had a wonderful time on the trip. You are so right, those youth can make me feel so ashamed of myself sometimes. I was thrilled that we were blessed to be there and get to see those 6 accept Christ and then again on Sunday night. We have such a wonderful group. Do me a huge favor and dont plan on not doing the youth before my two get that age. They both love all of you so much and I think it goes without saying that Jason is Matts hero. We love you guys.

Isn't this what we should live for...more and more everyday. God really opened my eyes this summer when my son and some youth that I have had in class were saved. Praise God for these children. You pray for it and teach it and when it happens there are no words to explain the JOY! I am so thankful for the work you and Jason do at our church. To God be the Glory! I love ya!
