What did we do all week?

We did a lot of spiritually related things at the Encuentro as well as sports, competitions and various “camp” activities.
Here is our group photo from the Encuentro in Colombia.

I taught a “New Hymns” class:

I also taught a Chorus class, where Colombian Christians sang in 4-part harmony for the first time.  [Explanation: Many of us in the U.S. grew up with 4-part harmony, but it is not a style to which Colombians are equally accustomed.  There are also aspects of their musical culture we would find unfamiliar.]

The kids also competed in my PowerPoint version of Who Wants to be a Bible Scholar:
