I got back from Na and am staying at the Efthimue's house now. Na was amazing. So much truth and teaching and fellowship in such a short time. I can't even begin to describe it all, but safe to say it has changed my outlook on a lot of things. I wasn't to sure about going and actually sort of made up my mind not to be affected by it, but I was :), and I had a great time too!

My favorite speakers were (no surprise) C. J. Mahaney and John Piper. CJ did has famous message "The Idol Factory" and I must say, even though I had actually heard it before on CD, as I looked at my own responses to adversity and disappointment, I was probably more convicted by it than any other message I have heard. Johnny P was amazing to hear and preached on the Glory of God and how Gods demanding our worship is actually the best thing he could do for us. I would recommend that you listen to both of those messages, which is going to be pretty easy now as they are all being made available free at

I also had a great time growing in relationships my guy friends, Jesse, PJ, Alex and Josh, Josh in particular as I had never really talked with him much at all before, and we were traveling buddies for most of the trip, which leads to a funny story, because on the way back (it took us forever and we didn't get in until 5:00 AM, we had to get creative to keep each other awake(it's a long drive back from Louisville Kentucky). We talked and application, geography, college, our futures, listened to sermons, country music( Josh's idea completely), drank a double shot espresso, hit each other (hard!), sprayed Josh with car cleaner, and generally had a great time of fellowship.

I got loads of pictures and videos and I want to post them soon (some of them, I have about a gigabyte worth)

So it was really a great, refreshing experience.

God Bless!
