chosen gathering

NYG

I'm at the youth gathering in Florida. It's pretty full. The sheer enormity of it is kind of blowing my mind. I mean, if it costs $1 a person to rent this huge convention center each day, they would be paying $25,000 a day to rent the center for the conference. If it costs $4 per backpack and $1 per Bible, it costs them $125,000 to give one to every participant. How crazy huge is that? It's also really tiring.

My girls are great, I really love them. They're pretty excited about the different sessions and things. I'm so tired, they were up late last night doing voluntary Bible study. Anyway, I'm going to try to find some food soon, I am spending way too much money. Oh, I discovered that me and Jordan and what has seemed like our measly $40,000 yearly salary puts us in the top 3% of the world's richest people. Makes me think twice about complaining because my unnecessary cell phone bill is large. It's been really neat. But I'm going to go cause I'm exhausted. Talk to you all soon, I hope.
