On Saturday afternoon, we all had a picnic together and then on Saturday night all alumni were invited to a banquet at the stadium. It was so incredible to be surrounded by people whose lives were changed just like mine. It was exciting to see how Crusade has grown and all it's done. Thirty five years of alumni packed into a room, listening to stories about sinners, changed by grace and exalting God to the fullest. Amen to that!
It was a wonderful weekend. My heart was so full of joy, of love, remembering where I came from just a few years ago. There is something to be said for a group of people that not only shared life together, but really sought to help others find life in Jesus together. We cried together, laughed together, prayed together and sang together. We sought the Lord together, we held each other accountable and we walked roads not many people walk together. I look forward to the eternal gathering that we all get to enjoy together.
