MPact Recap Weekend

Mpact weekend has come to a close and what a fantastic weekend it was! Everyone's a little tired, had a little too much junk food and most importantly is full of Jesus! Our theme this year was "Roots" and it concentrated on getting back to the basics. We took the weekend to work on the foundation of our faith, which is something everyone needs to revisit from time to time. It was rewarding and fun and exciting and lots of other positive adjective words.

Here's a pictorial recap of the weekend:

Orange Team

Blue Team

Purple Team

... and the guys.

Jordan came up with some pretty ... interesting games this year. What youth event would be complete without gross out games and busted lips?

The few days of wintry weather here in the Coastal Bend was enough to throw a kink into just about everything. Including MPact weekend. The Harbor bridge was closed for about 36 hours which made it nearly impossible to receive mail, including the event t-shirts. I anticipate they'll arrive first thing tomorrow.

Of course, the bad weather wasnt exclusive to south Texas, as a great deal of the state got blanketed with snow and ice. Unfortunately, the James Curlin Band was booked to perform both Friday night and Saturday night and was never able to get out of Waco due to the snow and ice. But some of our student leaders had connections and were able to get a band in at the absolute last minute to play at the Saturday night service.

We hope everyone involved had a wonderful time. Jordan and I want to say a huge huge thank you to all our host homes, who were so great to our students. Big thanks to the college students (and some alumni!) who came in and poured into our kiddos all weekend. Thank you to our volunteers and drivers and bakers and prayers. We couldnt have done all this without you!
