International Youth Conference
We just got back from the "IYC" at Jimmy Swaggart Ministries in Baton Rouge, LA. We watch Jimmy Swaggart at "SonLife Broadcasting Network" on the internet.
The four of us worked hard to prepare for our week long trip. We mowed grass, cleaned house, cleaned & did prevented maintenance on our van.
|Teaching our children how to maintain our vehicle by checking all of the fluid levels.|
|Getting ready for our IYC week!|
|Our children before church with their IYC choir shirts on.|
|There was at least 1,200 youth here from all over the USA & beyond.|
|They even let us "recycled teenagers" come!|
|The annointed singing was great & the altars were full each night!|
|Sarah's waiting on us slowpokes while walking from the workshops.|
|The IYC Youth Choir ready to make a joyful noise.|
|No that's not red ants up in the choir loft. This place is huge. The balcony is just as big.|
|Youth praying for one another. Several groups of young people were all around the altars. There were several still praying when we left.|
This was a special trip for us being it is our anniversary this week! We met so many people there & some were homeschoolers. Morning service, two workshops and an evening service were very hectic and tiresome because you didn't have much time to go to the hotel or town and eat between the workshops and the services.
Jimmy Swaggart Ministries did a fantastic job and have a great burden for youth and the lost. Also there is a great Bible College here. Can't wait till next yeat for IYC 2013!
That's it for our week, Traci.
