2 Crosses

WOW!!!!!!! What a morning.  Most of us hiked up the mountain to pray at 2 of the 3 crosses outside of San Jose.  Just to give you an idea of what it was like…. The teen house that we are staying at is about 3,500 feet above sea level.  The 2nd cross is around 7,000 feet above sea level. So if you can just picture 9 Jacksonville people, who are used to being at sea level, trying  to climb at that altitude… We were all breathing like we were some of the most out of shape people.  It felt like we had been climbing for hours when we reached the 1st cross, when in reality it had been about 30 min maybe a little more.  The site of the cross was indescribable.  We spent several minutes taking pictures and just taking in all the AMAZING things God has created.  Then off to the 2nd cross, we reached it just in time for some great photos then the clouds started to roll in. What an awesome site to be sitting at the foot of a cross and not able to view anything around you because of the surrounding clouds.  None of us will ever be able to explain what it was like up there.  All I can say is PRAISE GOD.  The way back down was a little tricky in spots, and I believe half of the group fell.  (Don’t worry no one was hurt) We all truly enjoyed the morning, though I believe I saw an ibuprofen bottle being passed around when we got back..

I am truly at a loss for words and if you know me that doesn’t happen much.  I just want to thank God for allowing me to go on this trip with such a wonderful team.
