Passion 2012!

I just got back from Passion 2012 in Atlanta with 45,000 of my closest friends. It was awesome, to say the least. We got to hear from Louie Giglio, Beth Moore, Francis Chan, and John Piper. The theme for Passion this year was human slavery, because there are 27 million slaves in the world today, both labor and sex slaves - this number is so significant because today, in 2012, there are more slaves in the world than at any other point in history! Crazy. We, a bunch of college students, raised over $3 million dollars in a matter of days to support multiple organizations to prevent, rescue, and rehabilitate slaves. Even crazier.

I haven't even really begun to process some of the things I learned, but my goal is to blog about them in the next week as classes start :( So stay tuned!
It was awesome to worship with believers from all over the world, catch up with friends, soak up the Word, and get pumped for being unashamed this semester!
