Open Our Eyes

A couple weekends ago, Christian Challenge went to Fall Conference! We go every year, and to be honest, the past couple of years, I kind of am hesitant to go. Something inside of me just doesn't want to go because I think that every year, it is going to be the same routine, and I won't really learn anything. But, EVERY year, God shows me that I am wrong and this year, I learned so much. Our speaker, Paul Sabino, was up there on the list of favorites. Max Barnett will always be the first, he is just unbeatable, but this year, Paul was so easy to relate to, funny, real and just a great speaker all around. Every session held everyone's attention so well and it was awesome! Also, the worship team that led us was Anthem. They led us two years ago, and I just love to worship with them! They write the majority of the songs they perform, so it is fun to learn new songs and hear the lyrics and how powerful some of them are. Another awesome thing was that there were about 175 people from K-State alone that went! So great! Kind of (really) overwhelming, but awesome none the less. It is so great to see all of the freshmen that are getting involved with Challenge! So, once again, I was definitely wrong about what kind of weekend it would be, and I felt really good after that weekend, and I am still thinking about some of the things that Paul said. Here are some pictures from the weekend!
