Happy Sabbath! :)

We are in Gatlinburg!!!!!! :)  It's so exciting and happy and wonderful.  Anyway, yeah, this morning in Hebrew we finished our reading competition, and I was one of the three winners.  So we got Swiss chocolate. :)  And then we had class from 9:00-12:00.  James Hartley was up from Wildwood and he talked about Medical Mission work.  It was incredible!  Health fairs and health as the entering wedge.  I definitely think I need to study more into some of that stuff.  It's incredible the results he's gotten from that!

At 1:30 we all met at Wright Hall and loaded the van and Expedition for Gatlinburg!  We left somewhere around 2:00 and got here around 4:30.  It was a lot of fun.  Some of us played Amen (Christian Uno =P) for a lot of the way.  And took silly pictures with LisaMarie's computer and other such nonsense.  After we got here, we got settled, looked around a little, then got supper ready and ate.  We started worship at 7:00 with singing, then Dr. Parker had us do some activities, then Michelle had a worship thought on Creationism versus evolutionism and how a lot of Christians are actually evolutionists, and then we had prayer.  I definitely need to explain that other more.  The principals of evolution are that things have to evolve, whereas when God promises us something (aka victory), we have it!  The same voice that spoke the universe into existence is still creating each of us on the inside.  And it's not a work of evolution.

Anyway, I was thinking during worship how many other groups of young people would enjoy having a 2-hour long worship.  No, we didn't get done until after 9...  But it was so wonderful!  And we spent at least 10 or 15 minutes in prayer.  And then we all sang "I Want to Go to Heaven" afterwards of course.  That's a FountainView tradition that's crept in through Sarah's influence. :)  Every time we sing it, it makes me want to go home more...

Oh yeah, I didn't say where we are staying!  We're staying in a condo!!!  Us guys have a room upstairs and the girls have one downstairs.  These are 3 bedroom apartments with everything you'd ever want!  We're eating and living in the girls' one, though, and just coming up here to sleep...  Anyway, I need to get to bed, because I'm on breakfast prep at 7 in the morning, then we rush off to the It Is Written Partnership meeting.  So goodnight! :)
