My Wonderful YW

In case you couldn't tell, the Young Women of our church congregation play a big role in my life. I've been serving and working with them for almost five years now and they definitely hold a special place in my heart.   Here's a few snapshots of what we've been up to recently:  

Our basketball team has been undefeated for several years now, yet they are still down-to-earth, show good sportsmanship, and are welcoming of all players, regardless of skill level.     I love attending their games and cheering them on! 

We also recently did a YW retreat, which consisted of doing service at a nursing home...

Including performing some scenes from the Wizard of Oz.   

We also helped decorate for Easter and visited with individual patients...

It turned out to be a great experience.

After the nursing home we went to Sandy Springs Adventure Park in Maryland, where the girls spent about 4 hours at the ropes' course.  

It was so cool to see their confidence grow as they did progressively harder and harder courses...

and I loved seeing the friendships that were formed and/or strengthened.  

The girls seemed to have a great time and could have kept going all night I think.  

I enjoyed the challenge and being out there with the girls, but, man, I was exhausted and bruised up by the end!

After the ropes' course, we went and had some more activities and a campout in our camp director's backyard.   

It took a lot of planning to make it happen, but I think it was worth every second of it. 

Last, but not least, we had a personal progress activity where we asked people to dress up in rainbow costumes.   Some of the girls got really into it.  :) 

I love the privilege it is for me to spend time with these beautiful young women each week. 
They have blessed my lives in more ways than they will ever know
