But these are written that you may BELIEVE that JESUS is the CHRIST, THE SON OF GOD. And that by believing you may have LIFE IN HIS NAME
                                                                                                                    -John 20:31

    Well, we made it! We arrived in Belleview, Florida tonight at 9:00pm all in one piece. While we were close to having a fender bender, we were being watched over so we praise God that His angels were watching over us and there were no damages and no dents!   
    We cannot believe that the amazing experience of the LCMS National Youth Gathering is over...however it really isn't over, it has only begun. Why? Because now were are to share our everlasting joy over what WE BELIEVE with everyone! We are the church of today, as Mrs.Kieischnick (the wife of the synodical president) said, not just tomorrow. We are not to stop as we LOOK, LISTEN, and LIVE for Jesus because the gathering is over; we are to continue to LOOK, LISTEN, and LIVE for our Savior, Jesus Christ everyday because WE BELIEVE!
    We did that this morning by starting our day with the other 25,000 youth in the Mass Event at 9:00am. It was a service of celebration and praise, and by it, equipped us to be sent out into our mission fields. I mean how can you say the worship service wasn't great when every teen and adult in the super dome was praising God and singing Hallelujah with their hands and boom-whackers in the air!
     We would like to thank you again for your prayers, thoughts, and continued support on this journey of spiritual growth in New Orleans. We would appreciate your continued prayers as we head out to St. Louis with Lois Schaefer, Barbara Montoya, Rachel Rockey, Jessica Rockey, and Elizabeth Rockey to LIVE out what WE BELIEVE on a servant event with Acts 1:8 Missions! If you know someone who would like to receive email updates from the blog, or if you would like them stopped please email Rachel at rachelr@rockeyfamily.org. Thank you again for all your prayers on our blessed journey!

God's Peace, Love, and Joy,
Rachel Rockey
Elizabeth Rockey

Just to clear things up...we didn't have an accident but it came pretty close. Indeed we came back in one piece with no damages. That's is why we were saying Halleuia! Thanks again!
God's Peace, Love, and Joy!
