The youth group participated in a servant project on Wednesday. For our servant project we worked at a community garden; weeding, weed whacking, mulching and creating a mulch path. On Thursday evening the youth group supported Zach Preheim and his cousin as they participated in the trash fashion show put on by Eastern Mennonite University.
It is hard to summarize the experience at convention on behalf of the youth group, we all had different experiences. For myself convention was meaningful as a time to see many friends from all over the US, to be inspired and learn from other leaders in the Mennonite church and an exciting time to bond with my wonderful sponsors and youth and see the many ways in which we are all challenged to make our faith more authentic.
