Our after event consisted of a walk over The Golden Gate Bridge. God blessed us with a breath of wind to blow away the constant San Fran Fog which revealed the towering span of the bridge. A truely beautiful sight of the bay of San Francisco. After this we went to our luxury shower at the Balboa Pool which consisted of several showerheads all turning on at once with a handle that resembles a urinal in the Mens Restroom.
All and all a truley wonderful experience that inspired us and we're exuberated for the next three days.

spending time with the kids
at the Bridge
We were formed into crews (teams) this AM. I am with 9 of our kids and Jackie is with 3 of our girls and 2 girls from another LCMS church from Colorado. My crew went to the boys and girls club in the Tenderloin which was really an eye opener; we realized how blessed we all are. Jackie’s crew went to the food bank and, with other volunteers, processed 45,000 pounds of vegetables. They were super tired.
Our youth are doing great, they are very positive in spite of some hardships, like the showers and lack of sleep, and they are really growing in their faith. Jackie and I are very proud of them.
