I am raising money to get to Passion 2013 with Flatirons Community Church
About this time last year, I started getting more involved with the church and learning more about God and what it looked like to have faith. Along this journey, I crossed paths with many young adults who inspired me in immeasurable ways. Last November there was a buzz amongst all of these people because they were so excited to go to Passion. Being "the new guy" and not really knowing which end was up at that point I had never heard of Passion, what it was, or what it entailed. As the weeks passed, I started to hear and learn more about it. I started to get this feeling inside of me that made me feel like this was something I should be at. Considering there were only a few weeks left to get the money in, I brushed it off because I couldn't imagine how I would make that happen. A few weeks later, while everyone was at Passion, I remembered that I could watch it online. So I pulled it up on my computer and as I was sitting there, alone in my cold basement, I felt this sense of warmth, something I hadn't really felt before. Something that for the first time in my life, felt real. I realized that life isn't all about me, it is about God and the only thing that really matters is the reality of who we are before God. Throughout the next couple of days, I didn't miss a session and I felt and saw my faith grow exponentially. All I could think to myself was that if this is happening to me, all alone, in my room, what would happen in a dome with 60,000 other college students all starving for the same thing. In that moment, I told myself that no matter what, I would find a way to be at Passion in 2013. So I'm asking for your help, whether that is monetarily, prayerfully, or however you see fit to help me realize a dream of mine. Thank you and God Bless!
