Man Trip to Nebraska

Maddox and I took at man trip to Nebraska this past week.

I was the theme speaker at SoulQuest, a Church of Christ youth camp at York College in York, NE. The theme for the week was "Unmasked." Andy Spell led a packed house of 600 teens in worship. It was a powerful week of transformation and fun. SoulQuest is the highlight of the summer for most of our teens from Littleton.

Several students made the decision to commit their lives to God through baptism. Many others recommitted their lives and made a decision to live life without their "masks" on.
After my chapel talk, Maddox and I took daily adventures throughout Nebraska.

On Monday, we played golf at York Country Club. It was the most fun I've ever had on the golf course. I imagine there will be many more days of golf between the two of us. In the words of Maddox,  "I beat you because I got more points than you did!"
 On Tuesday, we went to Omaha's zoo. Make sure and go there if you're ever near Omaha. After several hours at the zoo, Maddox and I went to Rosenblatt Stadium (former site of the College World Series) and T.D. Ameritrade Park (new home of the College World Series).

On Wednesday, we went to Lincoln to tour Memorial Stadium at the University of Nebraska. We decided to leave our burnt orange in our suitcases. We saw 5 National Championship trophies and 3 Heisman trophies. And Maddox was cute enough to get a lady to take us on the field.
We also sneaked in a couple of rounds of miniature golf while we were in Lincoln. Maddox "beat" me again.
On Thursday, we stayed in York and swam at the hotel pool. And Friday we made the drive back home. We were so ready to see mommy and Addison!

It was a great week! God did great things among the teens.

Man Trip #1 is in the books.
