Thrive Day 3
The final day of Thrive lived up to all expectations, with The Shore band leading worship before Brennan Manning spoke. Then I went to a break out session on the 15 million and growing orphan and vulnerable children in the world, focusing on the AIDS crisis and a new program working to raise money to help kids get the medications they need to live with AIDS called HOPE WALKS. The evening session was also fantastic with Lincoln Brewster leading the crowd in worship and Francis Chan speaking, one of my favorite speakers while at Cal Poly's Campus Crusade for Christ who has a church in Semi Valley. Just as a side note, Franklin Graham from Samaritan's Purse will be speaking at Thrive 2009.
