So for those of you who don't know, for the last couple of years I've been on the planning committee for the (deep breath) Lutheran Church-Canada Alberta British Columbia District tri-annual Youth Gathering. :)
After much planning and many meetings we (the committee) are on-site at the University of BC in Kelowna. Right now my youth group, and youth groups all over the district, are setting out to come here - check in starts at 3 pm.
This year we have just over 170 youth, leaders and other volunteers coming to participate in one of my most favourite things ever, and what is definitely my favourite thing about LCC - the Youth Gathering. Seriously, I think this is what heaven is going to be like, but without the two years of planning and work, and the registration fees! We get together, we visit with old friends, meet new people, play games, make music, listen to great speakers and presenters, don't get enough sleep...it's SO MUCH FUN!
Anyway, I've got about another hour before I really have to get up, so I'm going back to bed! (Which, being a dorm bed, is hard as the floor, and the pillow is so flat that even with a sweatshirt and a beach towel for added padding, my neck is still cricked at an unhappy angle. Urgh...)

There's a team in Israel right now, digging in my square...well, it's still pretty early in the AM there, so they're probably sleeping at this moment...anyway, I've been following this blogs, and this post made me pretty 'homesick'!
