Today thankfully started slower than some of our others this week. We met and rounded up all of our people to get on the bus for Holiday World in Santa Claus, Indiana. It was an hour an a half trip but took us only thirty minutes to get there. We unfortunately felt the other side of time zone shifts on our way home.
Because of the change in time zone and wanting to be back in time to rest or shower, we only had about three hours at the park. We had a good lunch and were able to ride at least a few rides before we had to leave. Some of our group even had their picture made with Santa Claus.
After we got back, some of our group went to the KICC for a drawing for board games. A few of them even won. We took our group picture right before we went to dinner.
During the service, we collected an offering for 12:7 Serve (www.127serve.org). Like every night, we had worship with Starfield. Mark Matlock spoke on Missions tonight. After the close of the service, the 8 USA Colleges and Universities each gave away $40,000 scholarships. Unfortunately, no one from our district got a scholarship, but a new friend from Hawaii-Pacific got the Trevecca scholarship.
Of course, the highlight of the evening for many was the David Crowder*Band concert. You can check out a video of a real Kentucky hoedown here. Afterward, we had our last District Meeting in the Fields Room of the Galt House.
Tomorrow, we will have our last service and head home.
