Where have I been? :)

I was not able to post on this blog last week as I was away!  I was privileged to be asked to be a leader for 4 days to some college age young ladies from our church! 

We drove 13 hours to Atlanta, Georgia to the Georgia Dome and experienced "Passion 2013" with 60,000 college age students - ages 18-25! 

Wow, what a GREAT time of hearing the Word of God, learning new things and worshiping amazing experience!  

We had 4 days that were quite long in length...7am-2am each day :) I am still catching up on sleep.  I guess it proves I'm not college age anymore. LOL! :) 

Passion was started in 1997 and is run by Louie Giglio and Chris Tomlin.  

What a BLESSING these guys are!  They are on fire for Jesus and believe THIS GENERATION is the one to stand for Jesus and share his love to others!  

They encouraged each of us (young and old) to share with those around us that Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life!!  He died and rose again so that ALL may have eternal life!  All we need to do is believe, confess and accept Jesus as Lord! :)  It's that easy, but Jesus still allows it to be our choice if we will let Him be Lord of our life. :) 

We were privileged and challenged by the many speakers we heard...Francis Chan, John Piper, Beth Moore to name a few. 

We also had exuberant times of worship...Kristian Stanfill was a WONDERFUL worship leader, full of excitement and energy...all for Jesus!!

We also were blessed to hear many Christian bands :)...Chris Tomlin, LaCrae, Kari Jobe, Matt Redman, David Crowder...I know I'm missing some...

What an exciting time of uniting 60,000 people together to worship our Lord and Savior, Jesus!  

We also were taught about the slavery still happening in this world today...27 MILLION people are still in slavery!  Did you know that???

 What are WE going to do to help slavery end in this world?  

We will fight for FREEDOM!! What a challenge, but as God's people...we want to make a difference and not just sit back and watch this happen.  The 60,000 students raised an AMAZING amount of money during these 4 days...these "poor college students" MADE a DIFFERENCE and these funds will continue to help set these people FREE!!!

Come back in a day or so...when things are back to normal :)  I have so many things I'd like to share with you!!!
