What God did in Rochester, MN, last weekend at the Mayo Civic Center

As you read through this post, please just bask in the goodness of the AWESOME God we love and serve... and give him thanks, praise, and glory... for THAT is why Im posting this.
My guilt is gone, and I know without a shadow of a doubt that God has forgiven me. Yes, the scars remain, but now instead of marks of shame and guilt, they stand as a symbol of God’s amazing power, for he found me from the depths and rescued me. I know that God will use me and my story to help others in the future, and he will turn what was bad into something that will help further his kingdom.

Bill,
I wanted to thank you for the work you did in Rochester this past weekend. We had 21 kids from our church there, as well as 7 leaders. Three of our kids accepted Christ on Saturday night. Praise the Lord! It was a fantastic weekend. We watched our kids grow in Christ, we watched them grow closer to each other and we watched them worship with such enthusiasm. Thank you for the part you played in Gods mission at the conference.
God Bless you.

God did do some Amazing stuff. My friend came to Christ that night, and I know a lot of others did too. I know it was all God's work and nothing you did. But i want to thank you for the ministry that you do, keep up the good work for God's Kingdom.
God Bless,
Jeremy

Is that a 'Camper of the Week' shirt you're wearing? No Way! I totally want one.

On a more spiritual note... thanks for updating us on the ministry. It's awesome to read about.
