alive 2007 Thanks to the Marcie Arnold Scholarship Fund, we were blessed to take 10 childrento the Metro Maryland Youth for Christ Alive 2007 Conference in November. Our children enjoyed praise and Travon Avent, left, and Chrisworship bands like Pocket Full topher Liggins enjoy some time on the beach during the of Rocks and Big Daddy Weave Alive Conference. and Jeff Deyo who sang with Sonic Flood. They enjoyed Dave the Horn Guy, who entertained the kids with 25 or more horns attached to his body. There were several motivational speakers like Joel Sonnenberg, Cynthia Tobias, and Darryl Scott, a parent of Columbine that really drew our children to tears and challenged them in life. All of the kids were moved by the testimony and the story about his daughter Rachel's life and dedication to taking a bold stand for God even if it meant death. Johnathan Hewitt, one of our kids, said, "whenever it was time for praise and worship and I hear Jeff Deyo sing 'Surrender', it makes me think deeply and appreciate life more." Travon Avent said "after going to the Alive conference, I am learning to be calm and try to pray before always getting upset or fighting."
