i have made it through my first week of conference. very nerve racking. its funny how we can fly by the seat of
our pants and still everything flows smoothly. every night has felt gripping and challanging to everyone in the
audience. we have had some very good speakers and foundation red has done a good job.
we have had some interesting things happen. we had a couple who was known as the breeders. the reason we called them that was
because they did things like make out under the ryder truck, tie each other together by the string of their shorts, try and sneek out of
the dorm, and pull each others pants down. it was great.
doing security is probably my favorite thing to do. we go around at night and tell all the kids to go to bed. the best part is when you get
to break up the little freshmen guys getting all the girls numbers. Never really understood that. it has gotten to the point that i have just
started to tell them that they will never see each other again and to just forget about it and go to bed.
another thing that has been very challanging is dealing with the youth ministers, and sponsers. at night after his time, they tell their kids to
go down to the creek and get some stones, or they tell them to go around and pick up trash at 11 o’clock at night. ya that is a good idea to send a
bunch of high school girls down to a dark area to look for rocks at 11 o’clock at night with who knows who is down there.
but other than that everything has gone great. we had a dodgeball tournament on friday and team ciy lost in the seconde round. kind of disappointing. but we did lose to the team that got first.
sense being here and being bored at times i have done a lot of reading. one book that i have enjoyed has been david crowders new book, praise habit. excellent book. i have also read tony campolos new book and was dissapointed. it was just a book of rants and raves about the evangelical church. not worth your time. i have started a new book called one shot, it is about a detective who has to figure out why the man who murder 5 people for no reason missed on one of his shots. kind of confussing but it makes sense when you read it. good book though.
starting another week of late nights and early mornings. can’t wait.
