Well, the organizational stuff continues apace for Happening 50. Its the youth retreat that I talked about before. We’ve got the youth staff pretty well set. One musician is set, one is up in the air. Its time to look at roles and talk assignments; gophers and group leaders. Both are so important. The group leaders get to stay with the small groups and lead their discussions, but the gophers are the glue that holds the weekend together. Without the gophers and their work, nothing would happen.
Now I’m the Big Sis for the weekend. What that means is that the buck stops here. I’m the responsible adult(!?!) with a church full off teenagers. Of course half of those teens are the ones who are doing the work of the weekend, so it isn’t as nuts as it could be. The first staff face to faces meeting is this Saturday afternoon. We’ll get the talks assigned to the kids and get some of the paperwork out of the way.
So please keep us all in your prayers for Saturday, and through the first weekend of March. Its going to be fun!
