God & Country

Yesterday, our church had our annual God & Country Extravaganza. It was great! G&C is a big community event we do every year with food, games, fireworks, music, etc... This year we really went big with everything. Probably the best fireworks I've ever seen, a military presence that included the landing and later departure of a Huey helicopter, bigger inflatables, and a lot more. Last year was my first year to see G&C (our church has done it 4 years now) and I thought it was incredible then. Last year we drew about 500 people. This year with more advertising and better organization, we had a crowd of between 2,500 and 3,000!! It was amazing. In fact, I think "miraculous" is a better word. Our church only averages about 150 in Sunday morning attendance. For us to pull off an event of that size and caliber is a total God-thing. One 14-yr-old boy came to Jesus last night, too, which is another miracle all by itself!
