* On the bus heading out

October 18, 2018

Sitting in the back of a big coach bus with 40 some youth and 3 young adults. On our way to a Young Life camp near Pelican Rapids (about 3 hrs NW of St Paul) for a long weekend youth retreat. Our high school youth director was able to get 40 some very busy high schoolers to do this.

And here sit I all almost 61 yrs of me. Why you may ask? Why indeed. There are several reasons: One – to be helpful to/supportive of our Youth Directors. On these trips they work at least 7am to midnight assuming their kids sleep from midnight to 7am (which they don’t always do.) B. – Because it’s an absolutely fascinating world to dip my toes into. High school for me was a long time ago in a far away land. Literally. As in the ‘deep south’ of Madagascar as those in Tana, the capitol city, described it. Where you could fit the entire HS of my school into this bus with room to spare–at 10 students my class was large. 3. – The program is always amazing and the folks who lead it all are wonderful.

Things at work have been tough lately. It will be good to get out of town for a few days.

And we’re off!
