I definitely felt like an oldie because it was physically exhausting. LOTS of walking and very little sleep. I. am. a. wimp. It was so worth it though. Incredible worship and gifted speakers pouring in to us for 4 days, filling us up, sending us out.
End It Movement. Here is a quote from their website:
Slavery still exists. We want every man, woman and child to know that there are 27 million men, women and children, just like them, living in the shadows. In brothels. In factories. In Quarries. Working as slaves. In 161 countries. Including our own.
They told stories of people in slavery being rescued and stories of those still in captivity.
They educated us on organizations that are working to End It.
They encouraged us that it is easy to feel helpless in this but even if you aren't the one physically rescuing someone bringing awareness to the issue IS doing something.
and they have even received attention from the White House.
You might have heard that Louie Giglio the founder of Passion was asked to pray at the Presidents inauguration and then was promptly un-asked... I encourage you to read more about that here and here. Very thought provoking and frightening in our current cultural climate.
Here is the only picture that we took on our anniversary. And a terrible one at that!
I'm so thankful and so blessed that I married my best friend 4 years ago and that the shows me sacrificial love every single day. He loves me so well and I am grateful. I love you babe!
He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
