I just had a great weekend. The Stand UP youth conference was here in Indy, and I volunteered. It is really amazing to see the ministry that has changed my life so much impacting other young people in the same way; and to be able to help out in whatever fashion is quite a blessing.
The event brought back good memories, while reminding me how much I love youth and youth ministry. I had not thought about it much lately, but I was reminded how I wanted to join the ATF ministry team before. I applied and was waitlisted for it the year after my internship, but a spot never opened. It is still a possibility, just not one I had seriously been considering lately. We'll see.. my options are broad after I graduate in December.
I knew my friend Casey would be there, and we got together earlier in the week. I was pleasantly surprised to run into one of my best friends, Josh Oberheide, at the event on Friday night. He is on staff at TM, but I had no idea he was going to be there. We got together for breakfast this morning and had some time to catch up. It was a good time, and we determined that Denny's breakfast is not as good as IHOP (which unfortunately is still closed for renovation!)
