And, ONE OF THE BEST BLESSINGS of our trip!!! Kris and Heidi!!!

Kris and Paul got along so well….they were definitely a blessing to each other when it came to organization, planning, asking questions, leadership, etc. Even though they did not think “exactly alike” they certainly complimented each other in their leadership styles!!

Heidi and I met the 1st day (before ever getting on the bus) but because they went in their own car, I never really saw them on the “trip up.” We got to know each other probably the 1st and 2nd day, after arriving. And, we immediately clicked. She and I are different (in some ways as night and dad) but I think we really think the same way and honor the same values when it comes to things that are important to us and to the girls in our youth group!! We certainly became “BFF’s” on this trip!! Thank you, Heidi, for who you are and for helping me along the way!!
