A couple of my pictures were used as well and my daughter was quoted.  She was referring to the Women’s pull they had where these young ladies pulled the cart up this incredibly steep hill without the help of any of the boys or men.

They hiked 20 miles total over 3 days in the heat, humidity, thunderstorms, hail and even crossed the river twice.

I have a great respect for these 250 youth who put aside their electronics and worldly things to participate in this incredible spiritual experience.
