Before coming on this trip, I really did not want to go at all! I thought, "Man this is gonna suck, I'm not gonna meet anyone new, and I'm gonna be super bored." My mom said I should at least go once to give it a try, so I was forced to come regardless.
As the days went on, I was actually having a lot of fun with all the people I met and grew closer with. But on Wednesday of the trip when we were asked to come up to the cross to ask for forgiveness, this is when I truly lost it. This is because it was the first time in my life I had felt forgiven and the first time I had truly found God. It was such an amazing experience and one huge reason why I will be going on mission trips whenever I can!
