It started at 8:15 in the morning. Need I say more?
I’m so used to going to conferences with Campus Crusade and especially ones where it’s filled with college students. So it was a bit of a shock to my system when I had to take a shuttle to the church at 6:45 AM, that’s right AM and it started at 8:15. Plus there was a time change for me so I was basically just needing a caffeine drip hooked to my arm. There wasn’t quite the energy that a college crowd brings (although there was definitely excitement and energy, it just looked different) and the average age of the conference wasn’t 20. There also wasn’t much down time in the 2 days I was there, and by much I mean none. It was packed full.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining. It was an amazing conference and one that I think every believer should go to. I would go every year if I could. It was a reminder of the heart of God for the world, orphans and making disciples who will love future generations to come. It was a refreshing challenge to walk by faith and serve the Lord in a way that I’m not used to being challenged.
