The youth had a successful trip to the One Event. Ten youth from Abilene First UMC plus Jenny and Karlene braved the weather and journeyed up to Grand Island, Nebraska. The youth participated in fun activities, attended Christian concerts, witnessed an illusionist, and heard inspirational speakers. They interacted with youth from all over Kansas and Nebraska and got to see some of their friends who attend Emmanuel UMC here in Abilene.
Everyone made it home alive and no worse for wear. (Ten youth went up and ten youth—the same ten youth even—came back.) Next year’s event is already being planned and will be held January 30-31, 2016.
