We had a great attendance, almost 12,000 in both sessions. We stayed at a lodge in Gatlinburg so we all could be together. This enabled us to have devotions & singing in the evening. I would like to thank all the Ladies that provided snacks for the trip. We were all well fed & had plenty of sugar to keep the energy at a high level. I would like to thank our congregation on their donations that enabled those that could not attend otherwise. It is greatly appreciated by the youth & me. The seeds that are planted here at such a large event are everlasting in these young lives. It is heartwarming to see 12,000 youth come together for a weekend of learning & fellowship. You would have been very pleased with our youth’s attitude & behavior. We did not have any concerns on this trip. One of our youth caught a Frisbee & a very young girl was behind him & crying because she didn’t get one, so our teen turned around & handed it to her. The Dad said “Whatever you guys are doing at White Bluff please keep doing it”.
CYC was a great learning experience. The sermons and singing were great, & the skits were hilarious. While the Christian environment was great for learning, it was also really fun. This was a quote from one of our youth, “Thank you for driving & taking me, the speakers made me start thinking about some things in my life”. Another youth comment, “I would like to thank the adults for cooking & serving our youth this weekend. It takes a special talent to supervise youth & do it with a smile. Thanks again for your service to the Lord.”

If you get a chance, ask them how they liked the event or what they learned, & to encourage them to continue in their walk with the Lord.
