the human experience

Iowa 2000 is over now. I was in charge of the first aid station this year which was fun. I had to get nurses to come in to volunteer but it was not very hard. Mostly nauseated retreatants from the heat in the gym.

After the retreat was over, we watched a film called The Human Experience. Oh my gosh! How incredible and convicting! This movie is about the journey of young men searching the world to discover the purpose of human existence. It is a very uplifting film that really convicts the audience to rejoice in our common humanity and to find joy in our lives, homes, and families as well as in the world around us.

Iowa 2000 and KWKY radio sponsored two prescreenings and two of the actors from the film, Jeffrey Azize and Michael Campo, came to speak about it and answer questions. After the prescreening, we invited Jeff and Mike over to hang out with our group of friends. It was so wonderful to hear their stories and to meet these awesome men! We had so much fun just talking and laughing and sharing each others experiences. I am so grateful to have had this time to see the film and meet two of the actors. It has definitely affected my outlook on life in a positive way.

I am totally going on another mission trip.

Jesus, thank you for this movie. Thank you for creating us and loving us. Be with us as we live out our humanity. Help us to live life to the fullest possibilities You have planned for us.
