Last week I attended Carolina Cross Connection. I attended last year as well and had a great time.
Before leaving this year I was nervous. I was worried about a getting a project that we couldn't complete or one that I didn't have the expertise to do well. I had some reservations about going and not really want to go.
However, I'm so glad I did go. It was a week all about serving others and spending time with fellow Christians in an environment conducive to growing close to God.
It was a much different experience than last year. I remember being stressed last year about building a wheelchair ramp, painting a really high area and cleaning out the basement of a house with awful mold and dead rats. I guess that's why I was nervous before the trip this year.
The projects given to my work team this year were much simpler. We painted two days, did yard work two days and built two small step down ramps in one day.
The staff was passionate, fun, enthusiastic and all about the youth having fun and growing in their faith.
It was a great week of work, worship and fun! I would recommend a CCC trip to anyone!
