transformation possible!!

Transformation Possible!!  This was the name of the youth camp our church put on this weekend for over 100 youth, it was awesome!  Where else will you find youth from a slum neighborhood, a remote mountain community and the best bilingual schools in the city coming together to play, worship God, learn and have fun?  I think it is only through God that this kind of unity is possible.  More stories of transformation to come, but for now I am one sore, tired, energized, excited leader.
