The kick off to the gathering the the Mass Event. While we missed regular registration, we were able to get into the dome this evening to join the other 25,000 youth and adults for worship, skits, speaker and more.
Our speaker tonight was Shanna Decker. She spoke of funding true joy. The joy stays, despite our mood, emotions, circumstances. Shanna’s story was about finding and she had bone cancer at 7 years old, how she lost her leg but gained some friends, who later lost their lives to cancer. Joy was hard to find, happiness was not present, but in Christ Alone, she found her joy.
And the Gretchen found pure joy in a pint of ice cream! Okay not really but she sure was excited to find her favorite ice cream at the local grocery store and she shared that excitement with everyone, who all agreed, it is really good ice cream!
