I just got back from a week at the beach for RUF summer conference. We took 6 students and had a wonderful time!
Here we are on Wednesday night. We went out to Cantina Laredo by San Destin, then hung out in San Destin for a little while.
KatieMac and me!
The week really was amazing. We got to hear Jeffrey Lancaster speak at night. As soon as they put the talks online, I will put a link up. I got to hear some great morning seminars as well. I went to a 4 day seminar by the RUF guy at Emory, Hunter Bailey, on why people don't believe. I went to a two day about discipleship by Paul Boyd (I think he might be from MTSU), and a 2 day one called "Designed for Dignity" by Kevin Teasley (Wake Forest RUF).
The talks were amazing, but one of the best parts was the music. We sang about 3 to 4 songs every morning and 5 to 6 songs every evening. When you have that many people singing, its going to be incredible. We sang a lot of new songs. My new favorites are "Father Long Before Creation," "King of Saints," "All Must be Well," and "Come Boldly." I was happy to known that "King of Saints" was on a cd I already owned (I must have just been skipping over it), "The Gadsby Project." But I picked up Indelible Grace 4 and 5 so I could have the rest on cd.
It was a really good time with the students...I got to spend good quality time with the girls. And I get to do this again this July, for RYM. I am chaperoning Faith Pres' youth group. Richie Sessions is the main speaker and I cannot wait!
