Day-end Report June 28 Youth Gathering - WE BELONG!

What an incredible day the Lord has provided! My heart is overflowing as I watch our youth experiencing God in new, powerful, and profound ways! We can all be proud of Kailyn, Luke, Jesse, Evan, Matthew, and Quinn who have found the courage to open their hearts and minds to experience God in such wonderful ways.

After my last update we had another speaker who shared with us that not only did God love us before we were born but indeed God's love for each one of us began before creation itself and will continue to eternity! Powerful stuff! Our final musical offering for the night was the "Guardian Drum and Bugle Corps!" Talk about blowing the roof off the center! They were great!

Every night before we go to bed the eight of us gather in the hallway to review our day. Tonight we talked about how God often comes to us through the people around. As we were talking an adult leader from another community of faith stopped to listen to our stories. He shared some of his experiences with us from the day. I believe he truly felt welcomed and like he belonged with us! That, my friends, was the theme of this day at the assembly. "We BELONG!" The truth is his presence among us was exactly what WE needed! Oh... and talk about ironies that God shares... this man is a very close friend of the UPG'S very own Kenny Young!

Now we rest! Tomorrow we will hit the streets of Houston to share more of God's love! Feeling and sharing God's love truly does change everything! Good night my sisters and brothers... rest well knowing you are loved...and you belong!
