Day 2 - NYC

7.10.2007 11:24pm - This morning we left the hotel at 7:30am to walk to the Gateway Arch. After a ride up 630 feet to the top of the arch, we walked down to the riverfront to board the Tom Sawyer riverboat. We [Charlie and Cody on the Riverboat] traveled up and down the Mississippi River on a guided tour. After theriverboat cruise, our group walked a few blocks to eat lunch. We met at 1:15pm at the America's Center to unload our food for the feeding of the 5000 and took it to the backstage area of the Edward Jones Dome. After we sorted our food, we received our free backpacks and hung out in the exhibit hall. At 5:00pm we were back at the hotel for a [Kelly feeding the 5000] Papa John's Pizza Party and also got our Trevecca Shirts. At 7:00pm we left the hotel for the first service. We were surprised to find the tobyMac preformed at the beginning instead of the end of the service. After about an hour of tobyMac, Greg Stier - of - spoke on how Jesus is some people's embarrassing friend. Free time was from about 9:30 to 11:30pm mainly in the exhibit hall with bands and booths and games.
