Passion is a gritty kind of love, tough and

optimistic enthusiasm that overcomes negativity and inconvenience to make it

through to the end. (10,000 Reasons Overflow)

Kings Island

So we leave for Kings Island, 46 kids, 17 chaperones, 1 bus driver, 3 cars, a trailer, and a truck. And a whole lot of prayer following behind us.
So we stop at Wal-mart. "there's something leaking from the bus". Great... a minor detour to Wal-mart to get some stuff to fix it...
Temporarily, very temporary. The next stop... WalMart parking lot to hold "games" for Fuel on location in Findley, OH.

So... we needed a place to stay. lo & behold St. Michael's Archangel church... Call information "can we stay at your church, we're stranded"... they found us a KofC hall. Set up for a funeral the next day... but it was dry, no bugs, and the perfect place. They blessed us in amazing ways. We held Fuel on location, a little tuned down, but we were blessed by the whole experience.

We held communion... Fuel Style. Grape juice in styrofoam cups and the tray was the top the drink cooler. And hearts open to all that God has done for us.

So we made it!! Tuesday morning we hopped in the bus, and arrived safe and sound!

In the park... I took lots of pics...
