PostSubject: CIY Challenge Card   Fri Aug 06, 2010 4:13 pm

So this week at CIY I felt that God was telling me to do something more for Active Water. Unfortunately I never had a chance to talk to anybody so I just kinda dropped it. Then on Thursday night we received our Challenge Cards. I struggled with opening mine after hearing others cards like run a marathon and raise $2,000 to send 10 friends to CIY next year. I was sitting there listening to other people read theirs and I lost my focus. The next thing I new my card was open. I unconsiously opened my card! I believe that in my moment of weakness, God held my hand and helped me open the card so that I can do His work. I just glanced at the card and saw $5,000 on it. I closed my eyes and prayed that He would help me with whatever it was and I felt confident that I can handle whatever the card said. So, it turns out that the card has instructed me to raise $5,000 for Active Water to build a well in Africa! I have so many ideas running through my mind that I am getting really excited about this challenge. I, a 17 year old about to be a senior in high school, will have $5,000 to give to this awesome organization, just you wait and see!
