We made it!
After waiting for four months to see if we could raise enough money to make it happen, and waiting for four hours on the tarmac to see if the airline could remove enough ice to make it happen, we made it to the National Youth Workers Convention (NYWC) in St. Louis! We set up our booth in the Exhibit Hall and spent the next 96 hours meeting people, giving away t-shirts, and hearing stories of what God is doing in youth ministries around the country. Nearly 5000 people were there. “These are our people.”
I don’t think we’ve ever had more fun!
While we were chatting with folks and hawking the podcast, we also set up our “studio” and asked people to join us for a few minutes. We recorded nearly 30 responses to questions we made up. The results are interesting, encouraging, and funny. Here they are for your listening pleasure.
We’re already excited for NYWC 2019 in Tampa. Can anyone say, “SHERPA HOUSE??!!”
