“Walking in the Light”—Big Sandy 2016
The messages from all our speakers were well received. One new speaker, Don Savell, an evangelist of nearly 50 years, shared a series entitled, “Watching the Weather.” This series turned out to be very appropriate not only with our theme but also with the weather we experienced during the first part of the week. Also speaking for the first time this year was Pastor Darren Myers. Pastor Myers helped the audience walk through the founding documents of our country and understand the freedom we have as well as how to maintain that freedom.“The Masterwork of God”—which focused on God’s amazing design through His creation. A team of 55 student teachers and staff came together to pour into the lives of the little ones who surrounded them that week.
“Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 19:14).
Focused on practical steps young ladies can take to "walk in the Light." These steps include being open and honest with parents, using time wisely, and making the choice to forgive.
Personal testimonies from the speakers about how forgiveness is lived out were some of the favorite sessions. During craft time each young lady made and decorated a paper lantern as a reminder to walk in the light. The young ladies who attended COMMIT had a wonderful time with their team leaders and new friends!
Overall, the conference was a huge blessing to attendees and staff alike. We are looking forward to the remaining three conferences. The next conference, at Toccoa, Georgia, begins next Tuesday, the 17th. Online registration closes at midnight tonight, the 10th.
