we saw the snow and boy was it wonderful! these are a few snapshots from the weekend before halloween. i must mention the fact that there’s snow in october in certain places is just shocking to my california coast dwelling self. i don’t know if i could ever live in the snow, but it sure is strikingly beautiful. the temperature was just right for james, who has a deep love for the coldest of temperatures (i say this as i’m bundled in a mess of blankets and humongous sweatshirt with our windows wide open.. he’s in a tank top of course).
we were on a jaunt to visit friends in nevada to begin planning for our 2014 youth camp (woohoo!). i’m hoping we get another chance to travel over these mountains again to see them, it was so refreshing—and not just that cold mountain air 🙂 we love being able to connect with other youth pastors and band together on behalf of our youth groups. it’s powerful to remember that we’re all in this together, serving the students and our churches but apart from all of that, our god. i am grateful for the innumerable blessings we’ve seen while serving in this capacity, it is such a joy! and we have some pretty bomb youth leaders along for the ride, so glad they came with!
