On Saturday at 5:30ish in the morning two vehicles carrying 11 people headed up north to meet with another vehicle carrying another 4 people. Once the three vehicles had met up they headed further north to South Bend for an all day festival/concert. We arrived around 9, parked, headed into the gates and then found our spot to set up 3 shade tents. Now there was much focus and determination to work quickly in order to have the tents up before the rain pour reached us. This we achieved. After the crowd prayed for the storms to move out, the rain cleared and the fun and worship was on.
We got to see the Robby Seay Band, Ayeshia Woods, Hawk Nelson, David Crowder Band, and Jeremy Camp. It was a blast. Initially it was supposed to be blistering hot all day but with the rain pour we had, it didn't begin to get hot until around the Hawk Nelson band and from there got hotter.
We headed out to the vehicles for lunch and hydration, then back in for more music.
Here is our group, what a bunch and what a great time!
I really enjoyed being able to take our teen trio as well: Madison from church, Bre and Jessica our niece.
The last act was the main reason Rodney, Bre and I wanted to go.....Jeremy Camp. The poor guy had the hottest time to be on stage. Half way through his time he was struggling to go on and not pass out. With God holding him up, he persevered and finished out his time. It was the best part. I throughly enjoyed the music, the worship and the friends that all went. OUr family as well as Winter and Jesse have decided we are going to make it our yearly tradition for closing out the summer before school starts.
