  1. It was such a neat day to spend with all of you and the 90 some junior high students! I pray that your journey continues to be safe; and that this time at the Eucharistic Congress renews each of you from within and without!
    Many blessings!

    I had such a fun day at steppin’ right despite the rain. it was so much fun meeting other kids my age that were on fire for the Lord. I cannot wait to go back there next year!

  3. Blog reports from Canada read that the CYE troop continues to experience some rain, but is mostly on FIRE with all the good news they are hearing and sharing with each other. Anna, I am grateful that we met you at Steppin’ Right. May you experience many opportunities that bring you closer to God.
