Looks like our arrival will be closer to 7:30 pm. Lots of bathroom breaks!
Thursday was a full day. After getting the competition started between the teams, Evangelist Bobby Bosler preached a message from Matthew 24:12 "And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold." He emphasized that our love for the lost is often hindered because of sin in our lives.
Dr. Jim Van Gelderen's sessions were incredibly powerful, with the evening message emphasizing the wonderful truths of 1 John 1:9. He emphasized the need to truly confess our sins. I would encourage every parent to speak to their teens about this message.
In addition to being the opening night of the Thee Generation Youth Summit, the service last night was also the conclusion of the Falls Baptist Missions Conference.
There were updates from two missionaries, as well as a challenge from Evangelist Bobby Bosler about the next phase of the Thee Generation: being mobilized to spread the gospel worldwide.
The evening concluded with a message from Pastor Rick Savage from the life of Daniel. Several of our teens went forward at the invitation.
This morning, after a breakfast of eggs, yogurt, and donuts, the group is outside for the start of the competition. It’s in the 30’s here so it’s cold!
I have added a picture of the schedule so you can be praying.
More updates to come!
After over 12 hours and car repairs, we have made it safely. Getting checked in and then to the service. Please pray for a great start to the conference tonight.
We are excited for this year's Thee Generation Youth Summit - Cola Clash +! Here are some last minute reminders and announcements before we leave:
