Home Safely

Thanks for all the prayers that went up on behalf of the students and adults this week. We had a great time and God worked in a mighty way. Over 20 students gave their life to Christ! Not to mention we had a great time of fellowship and just plain fun! More pictures will be up soon at

Last Day

About to head to bfast before our last session! God has done some great things in all of us. I look forward to seeing how God will continue to speak to our students and adults as we take what we have been challenged to school, home, work, and play. We will be heading out at 11! Please pray for safe travel. Parents we will be back by 6:00p.m.

Day 3 Night

A great time of worship tonight as Adrian challenged us on how consistently seek God. It was a great message. It was followed by a "talent show." Some of it was talent and some of it was well... We are now headed to bed and then up in the morning for our last session before we head out. It has been a great week. Parents I encourage you to ask your student what God did in their life when they get home!

Day 3 Afternoon

We have had a great morning and afternoon.

Adrian challenged and reminded us this morning what God has already done for us as believers and that HE paid the ultimate price! "Christ in us the hope of glory." After the service we headed to lunch and then most of us went to Wonderworks and a few went shopping! It was a fun time to hang out with the adults and students. We have got some great pictures and I will put some up tonight along with another blog.

Dinner is at 5:00 followed by our last evening session! Pray for God's Will to be done in all of our lives.

2 Night

A great day of skiing, tubing, ice skating, shopping, and...! Good news is we brought back to the hotel everyone we left with :)

The messages today were both great. The Lord has blessed Adrian to be an excellent communicator of the gospel. There were several students this evening who prayed to receive Christ and other decisions as well. I am sure you will hear more about these when we get home and also on Sunday.

Tomorrow is shopping/ track day. However it is supposed to rain and storm. So we are doing shopping and Wonderworks (pretty cool, you can google it). Looking forward to another great day.

1st Night

It's just before 11:00 and all the students are headed to their rooms. We had a great first night of worship. The Akins lead and did a wonderful job as always! Adrian followed up with a message on 2 Corinthians 11 and 12 regarding Passion and Suffering. He made a statement that I am still thinking on, "Passion makes suffering look like excitement" and followed it up by 2 Cor 12:10 and Acts 5:40-42 (encourage you to go read all the scriptures:). He encouraged us to rejoice in our suffering for the Lord and if we have a Passion for Him we will suffer but that we can use that for His glory as Paul and others did. Very challenging message.

Tomorrow it's off to skiing, shopping, ice skating, snow tubing, and the like!!! Please pray for us that we will enjoy the fellowship together while here and that all students/ chaperones will know Christ before they leave and those that know Him, God will speak to them.

Made it Safely!!!

We have made to Pigeon Forge about 6:30p.m. All are here and accounted for. About to head to worship! Pictures and update to follow later tonight!
