Epic closing program last night with Brandon Heath, Owl City, and TobyMac followed by fireworks. The glow necklaces and bracelets made our group easy to recognize in the growing mosh pit. Due to most-excellent 4am tarp runs, our group had perfect seating every day.
Packing up this morning included brunch of leftovers for sleepy students and adults dragging out of each of our nine tents. We watched as other groups packed up and got in line to depart. When the path cleared, we shared a closing prayer then pulled out onto a new driving route home.
On a personal note…this was an amazing group representing CPC. I recognize that tent life is cramped, the food is different from home, the temperatures fluctuated as much as 40 degrees daily, and squatting in the port-a-potty is the only alone time … but everyone truly took it all in graceful strides. The random fun through cooking/ cleaning together, worshiping together, casual conversation under our shade canopies, and creating body art with markers are absolutely unforgettable!
The Lord cemented our relationships with one another and deepened our connection with Him. All praise and glory go to our Creator!
