This morning we woke up at 9:30 and left the church at 10 to travel to Minneapolis. We took the light rail to downtown Minneapolis where we had a delicious lunch. After our meal, we took another light rail all the way to the famous Mall of America. Our first adventure was at Sea Life where we learned all different types of facts about all marine life. After sea life, we went up to the Minnesota shops and bought our youth leader a shirt to show our appreciation towards her. When we were done on the very top floor, we went down to get delicious frozen yogurt. While two of the youth and one of the leaders wanted to continue shopping, the rest of us kids and Kelsey went down to ride a roller coaster in the Nickelodeon Universe. After the thrill of the ride, we left the mall and went to Pizza Lucé for a very filling dinner where we talked about our day. We saw God in all different, but very unique ways. Some of our sightings consisted of when many people were asking and talking about our thrivent shirts or when people were holding the door open for us with welcoming smiles. I was personally changed today by seeing how thankful i should i cherish my life or to cherish special moments and seeing how beautiful the world is when you put down your cellular device.
