Breakn in Wheaton IL and Branson MO

Well, Mike and I have been planning this trip for sometime now. We both arrived in Chicago, my favorite city, and had an event that evening in the Wheaton area. The event was at a large car garage, which was owned by the people we were staying with, and it was awesome. Randy, who is a close friend of mike, is a leader of a Christian organization called K Life and he invited many of the Christian high school students he leads to come to the event. So there was a great turn out, about 40 or so students came. Mike and I taught them the top rock, knee drop, 6 step, and a freeze. It was awesome to see how well it connected with the high schoolers. We were given an opportunity to speak and I spoke on being creative in evangelism. While Mike shared about identity and how it needs to be found in Chirst alone. At the end of the night, the students showed off their moves that they learned. It was great!

Then, we headed off to Branson, Missouri. I must admit Branson is an interesting town. Dolly parton's hotel, Dick Clarks theatre, and countless impersonators made me laugh. There was a K life conference going down at the Dick Clark theatre and hundreds of college age and older people were there. Mike and I set up a both and were able to promote Breakfree ministry. The first night of the conference we were able to go up on stage to share about breakfree and bust some moves. So we had the booth for a few days. Then the last day,Sunday, we were able to go to a church in Branson and do a couple Children's services. I spoke about being a fisher for men. Then we gave an announcement to the church about the event we were doing that night called Kollision, which was for jr. high/ high schoolers, encouraging them to invite people. We were told that typically on 30-40 people come, about 110 people showed up ! Bishop (mike) and I did some bboy demonstrations and then Mike shared his powerful testimony. The gospel was preached and because of this, I was pumped! Thank God for another great week of opportunities!

Which one of the Branson hotels did you stay in? I'm trying to find a good place to stay while there with family and friends.
