The Live Offensively Fearless Summer Tour has crisscrossed the US for four consecutive summers now. Every summer we tour between 10 and 15 Christian Rock Music Festivals coast to coast. Every single week we minister in a different state outfitting tens of thousands of students with a message. We have had the opportunity to be a part of what God is doing: raising up a generation of world changers. In between festivals, we will be rock climbing among other things. I have started this blog for friends, family, and pretty much anyone interested to follow my journey and hear about how God is moving during the summer.
So almost exactly a year ago, I was at a christian music festival called Cornerstone when I came in contact with a group called live offensively. My current boyfriend (a complete stranger to me at the time of Cornerstone) started telling me all about the things that Live Offensively stands for, and what they do. As he was telling me these things, it felt as if many prayers had been answered. I was hoping for an opportunity to travel the country, ministering to teens, allowing God to stretch me, and here it was! Throughout the year I prayed for God’s confirmation, and His provision, to allow me to go on tour with Live Offensively if it was in His will, and thankfully it was! I will be leaving in one short week and after a year of praying and preparing for this adventure spiritually, I am excited to see what God has in store. Please pray for my team and I as we are traveling.
Currently I am lying in my bed at home sick. Since I am not doing much of anything, I figured I would update you as to where I am in my trip planning, and what is to come the next few days.
First of all, today is my graduation party/bon voyage! I am excited to spend the night with my friends and family, reminiscing, laughing, probably crying, singing, and worshiping God around a bonfire. I am excited to eat a lot of fruit, and the salad that has been calling my name from the fridge since yesterday. Ohhh, and giant marshmallows. I hate marshmallows and most other sweet things, but these things are ginormous so I must have one!
Tomorrow, I will spend the day writing thank you cards, packing and going to alive (my churches youth group) to say goodbye to some of my sweet friends.
Monday morning, I have to go get money from a school in ann arbor, and then I have to go pay my enrollment fee. Afterwards, I will (God-willingly) be headed to mineral city, Ohio to meet up with my team at Alive Fest. There is a chance that I will not be going until early tuesday morning, but we will see.
