Comments from our youth after their awesome trip to Kansas City (Taken from the church news letter)

I like the feeling of closeness and friendship that is formed, and how we all get so close to each other, especially those we wouldn’t normally interact with through our common love for Jesus.
– This trip was really important to me in strengthening, not only my love in God, but also my love in myself. It taught me that loving others is the only way to love myself, and I really hope to start incorporating that in my life.
– I liked that you were closer to God, and he helped us all get here because it was difficult. He helped us all get here to make new friends. It was a great experience, and I encourage all people to go.
– During our trip I’ve learned that we mainly focused on loving. Loving yourself and knowing your talents. I found my talent while I was here. I made new friends during those days of worship and fun stations.
– Youth 2019 was a great experience, and I am thankful for the church giving me the opportunity to go on the trip. Watching people in the group grow closer to God and learn more about the love God has for them was my favorite part of the trip.
– This trip was fun, and I learned so many things. I learned how to love myself more than what I already do. I learned you have to love God and yourself before you can love anyone. Our new friends, our workshops, and DIG group were so much fun. Thank you for letting us on the trip.
– Youth 2019 was really a great experience. It was a time of worship and just really connecting with God and those around you. This trip wasn’t just great as an individual experience, but also as a group. It brought us
closer together and taught us to Love Well. The most important thing I learned on this trip is that God’s Love is infinite for everyone. No matter what, God’s Love is inside of us and it is our duty to love him back first, then love your neighbors, and, finally by doing these two things, love yourself.
– This trip has been very inspiring and life-changing experience. This trip has not only taught me the importance of loving others and God, but also myself. Another thing that I learned during our workshops was that God loved and made us for a purpose even before we were thought of. Not only did I learn a lot, but I also made some amazing friendships. This experience has truly been inspiring, and I know I will be changed FOREVER.
– My favorite parts about the trip were the bands and being able to explore the city with my friends.
The music and worship services were lots of fun and bonded the whole group.
– I could say so many things about this trip because it touched my heart, but let me start with thank you. If it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t be able to get so much closer to these people and make memories like doing the Macarena to songs, doing improv, or just talking. I will never regret this trip, even the bad moments, like when my flip flops broke and I lost my phone.
– I felt like going on this trip, I not only grew closer to God and my friends, but I also grew as a person and became more comfortable with who I am.

As you can see, Youth 2019 in Kansas City, MO, was an awesome experience for our students. “Thank you” to everyone who prayed for us and who donated so generously.
