Adventurland Rally!!!

Yesterday was the annual state wide youth rally at the Adventureland theme park in Altoona, Iowa.

What an incredible day! There were over 900 in attendance from all over the state of Iowa and even a few came over from Nebraska! Our speaker for the day was Pastor Pat Odle, campus Pastor/Chaplin at Faith Baptist Bible College. Pastor Odle brought a stirring message from Luke 16 on the Rich Man and Lazarus. Hearts were truly challenged as about 15 teens received God free gift of salvation through the finished work of Jesus Christ. What a blessing it is to see people come in to a new relationship with God through Jesus and know that when their lives are completed, they will be with their heavenly father for all of eternity!

Following the rally the teens and sponsors are able to enjoy the park for the rest of the day. As usual, my day was spent walking around visiting with folks, but I did find time to ride a few of the roller coasters. I'm a huge fan of the roller coasters!

One of my favorite events of the Spring!
