The Beauty Of God
On Tuesday, January 7th, my team took a trip to a volcano. The day started with us waking up earlier than usual, and if you don't know me, than you don't know that I am not a morning person at all. Even though I'm not a morning person, waking up early here doesn't bother me. After breakfast the team left to go to the volcano. One of our team mates wasn't feeling well, but with the help of God, he was well enough to experience the volcano trip with the rest of us. Living in Ohio, sometimes I forget about the beauty of nature. But on this trip I was well reminded, the scenery and everything was just so beautiful. It reminded me of the beauty of God. We were able to walk through unbelievably old forests where the trees were at least 100-300 years old. There were places where two trees had grown together which made for some interesting conversations and photo ops. Our heads were literally in the clouds which blew by us like a mist. It was an experience I will never forget--to look out over a new place that God created for us to enjoy. By the way, the drive up to the volcano was steep and with lots of turns. It reminded some of my teammates of Cedar Point, especially when we came back down the mountain.The best part was to be with my team, and recognize that God was there with us. - Zach Anderson
