Encounters of the Lubbock kind

Friends at Encounter

On the campus of Lubbock Christian University, over a thousand teens from hundreds from West Texas Churches of Christ gathered for a youth experience.  Encounter LE is a three-day event in November filled with Christian entertainment, times of worship, in-depth Bible classes and Christian fellowship.  This year three of our young men—Zayne, Mark and Sam—were able to attend this awesome youth event.

Starting on Friday night, our young men got a taste of college life, interacted with some of the students of LCU, took a tour of campus, and ate at the cafeteria.  They were treated to a wonderful Illusionist and a great time of worship.  Saturday was a day filled with in depth classes that covered subjects ranging from dealing with emotions to the wonders of God’s creations through science.

Throughout the weekend some of the best experiences happened during our interactions with the other kids.  Hot chocolate and S’mores set the stage for some conversations about life, God, and sports.  Friendships were rekindled with those who our boys see at summer camps as well as new people, all gathered to praise God together.  The boys were worn out on the way home, which we understand to mean that they had a wonderful time.
