The Day We Left The D.C. (Dream Center)

Posted by:Andrew Hanssen

Hey all you peoples!
Hope everyone had a great DAY!

We left the Dream Center today after our "Brutal" workout with the Disciples.. That was fun for the guys! The s went to a womens outreach. Sadly we had to leave and say bye so we had to drive for a while before stopping at an ALIEN restaurant. That was odd! We ate then went to Sadona and went hiking again. Some of us didnt really get far... Well, Nick got about 100 feet from the car and laid down and waited for everyone else to come back. Benji and I went up for a while, looking for some shade to chill in, but got distracted by rocks. "Odd" you may say, "NO", actually very entertaining! We rolled them down the rivers but they got about 4 feet and didnt even brake, so we gave that up. Then we went up and started throwing rocks at absoulutly nothing until we found a cool plant and butterfly to throw them at! DONT WORRY.. we didnt hit the butterfly! Meanwhile, the others went to the EXTREME and climbed up to the higher part of the mountain. Jamie fell.. but again, dont worry, he's fine, it wasnt far! Only a couple of scratches. They got as high as possible.

After our adventure in the wilderness mountains we headed for our new hotel. We got situated and ordered pizza. Some of us went to an obeservatory to look at the sky! We saw Saturn and some double star, which was cool! The guy said that we have stuff in common with the sun, because we all have sundust in us and are related to the sun, somehow.. We didnt really feel like questioning him and causing a riot, because I think we had confused him enough by just wearing volleyball and soccer sweatshirts. It was cold there so we didnt stay for too long!

Otherwise not much has happened here.. oh yeh, Nick threw up but we didnt get a picture! But yeh, keep praying because some of us are still sick and the rest of us dont want to get sick...
God is with us! He's really cool! You should come up here and check out the view of the stars from these mountains! It's beautiful.. or you could go to a mountain in Flori... Oh wait.. there arent any...

God Bless you!
Thank you for your prayers!

Can everyone stop being sick please? The last time I was in Sedona, two ladies in front of me said that the reason the Anasazi Indian civilization disappeared was because they were taken by aliens and returned to their home planet. So, yea, Sedona is a little weird. So thankful the butterfly is OK and His creation is amazing. How did He think of it all? Lol, Mrs. Harrison

Well done on the whole blog, Andrew and Thomas! I know it's difficult to write and upload pictures after a tiring day, but your posts have really helped us to pray for you juniors better -- especially about the, um, intestinal difficulties.

If you're not too exhausted Wednesday night or Thursday morning, please make a quick post when you get back home to let us know you arrived safely.

Have a safe trip home. Looking forward to chapel!
