I was happy to help and one afternoon we sat down to practice. It did not go well. Robert could barely carry a tune and he wanted to sing the song, Friends by Michael W. Smith.

Posted by Liz Perraud at

By Kelly Kaufman Each summer high school youth, young adults, and adult leaders gather together for a week to grow in their faith, in their commitment to Christ, and in community with each other.
