youth-rally

The diocese of Columbus held their youth rally this past weekend!

As a member of the DYC and actually running it, I can say I had an amazing time. It wasn’t just the fact that it was super fun and amazing but my favorite part was watching it actually making a difference in people’s lives especially the ones I’m very close too. I can’t tell you how amazing it is just to watch someone’s life change right in front of you. One of the best experiences of my life.

Youth Rally

Oh man! where do i start?!! This week has been amazing. God is truly amazing and all-powerful.  I realized this week that i dont want to be like the other people. I want to be different. Today was the first time i got out of my seat and went to the back n prayed to God n talked with a counselor.  I made a couple decisions..n i just really hope i dont go back to those dumb things ive done.. i know i will probably slip n fall but i know ill get back up with God by my side because Philippians 4:13 says “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."  This verse has helped me get through a lot.  It pushed me through the toughest times and it has kept me strong.  When i think i cant do something i always have this verse in my mind and i always say to "JUST DO IT FOR GOD!"  You can do anything with God by your side.  He will help u with anything and everything. 

God has really opened a lot of hearts this week.  Im soo happy to see many people getting saved and making the right decision to accept Christ Jesus as their personal Savior.  The only way to heaven is by accepting God into your heart and asking him to be your personal Savior. He will forgive all your sins and when you die you will be going to heaven.  I was amazed at how many people wanted to say their testimonies.  Many of them made people cry and it was just a blessing to hear the decisions they’ve made and how God worked in their lives.  God is merciful. I really wish we could have another youth rally soon.  Im just so thankful I was able to be a part of it.  It was truly a blessing to be with a bunch of God loving people.  I will never forget this night. <3

Chris Tomlin - Our God

Water You turned into wine
Open the eyes of the blind
There’s no one like You

Into the darkness You shine
Out of the ashes we rise
There’s no one like You
None like You

Squamish!

Youth rallies are definitely on my top 10 list of favourite things.  At the youth rally I’m attending next weekend, we play a little game called Squamish. 

Squamish in a nutshell:     

1. It’s a mix between rugby and football. 

2. No equipment. 

3. Any tackles below the neck are fair game. 

4. You have to yell “SQUAMISH!” before you tackle anyone. 

5. You can pass to anyone on your team regardless of where they are on the field. 

6.  Do not underestimate the ladies. 

7.  You can tackle anyone, at anytime.   

8.  Unlimited amount of players on the teams, but they have to be close to even because all players are on the field at once. 

9.  The play never stops unless someone gets hurt. 

10.  Don’t get hurt.

11.  The objective is to get your football across the field to the other person’s goal line.  You can't throw it to another person across the goal line, someone has to run across it with the ball. 

12.  No kicking the ball!   

Have fun.

TOO excited for Youth Rally ‘11 [x

note to self,
be ready to have your character, humility, and patience tested this week. it’s the last week before Youth Rally, what do you expect? failures don’t define you and victories don’t affirm you. it is only in Christ that you’ll find yourself. stay strong, consistent, and faithful to the work that God has for you this week.

YouthRally2012.

asdfjkl;…what a blessing it is to serve God. to live for him and to just worship him is a blessing beyond compare. tonight was evidence of how faithful God is to us. that if we obey and submit ourselves to his plans and vision, we can truly experience explosive results. we easily had more than 400people tonight as a youth group! worship was powerful and to see each of the huge teams was soo awesome. i didn’t bring my goal of 12people, but i praise God for the 8people who came to represent my team/group. another night of worship is in the books and it’s truly obvious that God looks out for those who live for him.
