This is one of my favorite weeks of the year.
It’s Soul Quest week at York College, and since we live here in the town of York, we are blessed to enjoy the evening worship times. What is Soul Quest, you ask? It is a church camp held on the York College campus that brings in 500+ campers, including our two oldest boys. It is a week of intense spiritual encouragement, classes, and worship for the campers and staff.
I took this picture tonight during worship while standing on a chair in the back of the auditorium.
(Way to break the rules and stand on a chair during worship, Laura. Yeah, I know.)
Our family has taken part in Soul Quest for as many years as we’ve lived here in York. Sometimes we attend the morning chapel session too, but typically we stay home all day getting our work done, then head to the big assembly each night for amazing singing and prayer time with a room packed with teens and adults. It’s loud and crowded, but you talk about a room full of people on fire for the Lord. This is where it’s at.
We are so thankful our older boys are able to get the full Soul Quest experience (which, of course, includes staying up way too late at night in the dorms). The friendships they build and the mentoring they receive is priceless. It’s a fun perk that they are away at camp, but we can still catch a glimpse of them each evening. ;)
