DNOW

This weekend is a Discipleship Now weekend at our church and Scott and I are going to be a "support" home. I am so excited/nervous. Last night was the kick-off. There was a Christian Magician and then they told everyone which who their host home would be. There are 325 kids participating. We didn't have this when I was in high school and I think I heard about it in college but never did it. So this is all new but I think it will be fun.
It's going to make for a full weekend. We are helping our friends Jason and Lisa. We have 7 10th grade boys. Scott and I have the job of helping drive the kids around to all the functions. And just helping Jason and Lisa. The theme for the weekend is "Deeper Dive". They are challenging the kids to get a deeper relationship with Christ. The speaker is David Nassar. I am VERY excited about that - he is awesome. He grew up a muslim and now is a Christian Evangalist. I met him the first time when he was travelling with Rick Ousley the summer before I started OBU and was working at siloam. I have a picture of us when I was 17 with big hair and he was probably 19 or 20. I'll have to post it later.
Pray that the kids who come who aren't saved will find salvation and that the kids who are Christians will be challenged to walk closer with God. And pray for all the adults and college students coming to work with the youth. This is a huge event for the youth.
