The Experience team left directly from Deep Camp to begin "Wander Week" which took us all over the country, with a lot of God encounters on the way. The week was specifically designed to be a mystery, so though we can't share many details here, the students were engaged in a number of unique experiences that allowed them to witness God's creativity in people and in creation.
After a full week of traveling and camping, everyone was pretty excited to get back to Denver. The last week of the Experience was spent exploring some of the unique ways that God created each of the students, and dreaming and casting vision for what the future years may hold. Toward the end of the week, the students spent some time re-visiting the objectives they had listed at the beginning of the program, for what they hoped to see happen during the summer - and the night ended in a spontaneous time of intense praise and worship as we all got to marvel at the work that God did, meeting everyone in what He had placed on their hearts from the beginning. A repeating comment throughout that evening was - "the Lord knows us so well!"
The summer experience ended in a joyful graduation ceremony on Saturday, July 16th. People from all over the country came in to celebrate and join in launching the Experience graduates.
Praise God for a summer that was so full of brokenness, healing, vision, and movement!
Praise God for the 19 lives that are now being sent out all over the country!
Praise God that this is only the beginning.....
