Way Back Wednesday: 2-24-10 Edition

So back in the day (meaning: 2006-2007, so not THAT far back), I was a student leader in a college ministry called Wesley Foundation.  I handled communications, which basically meant I made signs, designed brochures, and took pictures.

For three years, Wesley Foundation made my college life awesome and I loved it.  Best of all, it’s still doing that for college students today.

While all of the communications work I did lives on in a professional writing portfolio that I can’t locate, the memories live on forever in my heart.

In February of 2007, three years ago, a bunch of us FMU Wesley peeps went to a retreat at White Oak Convention Center, and we took some pictures.

We also ate food that sub-par to the FMU Dining Hall all weekend.

I won’t even lie; my friends and I were college ministry rebels and skipped out on the sessions to go randomly wandering around the woods.

So glad this trail was marked...

The retreat was interesting, and I met some cool people who I added on here and occasionally wish a happy birthday.  As that’s how these retreats are- you bond with amazing people, but it’s just like summer camp- you don’t keep in touch.

The only people I can name in this picture are the ones who actually went to FMU with me. The sad thing is that I can't even name all of them...

Not to mention, we had a talent show where a bunch of us performed a parody of Beyonce’s “Irreplaceable”, with the words changed to reflect how God is irreplaceable.  Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a picture of this, and since this was so long ago, I doubt there’s a video on YouTube somewhere.

You must not know ’bout God, You must not know ’bout God.   He’ll come into your heart in a minute, so don’t you ever for a second get to thinking that He’s replaceable.

    Awww, these are really nice pics.

    Hehe, at least you were honest about skipping the meetings. That trail does look pretty cool though. I want to walk through the woods again! That sounds really fun right now, despite the cold weather we’re experiencing.

    That’s cool about changing the lyrics of Beyonce’s lyrics to talking about God. I used to do that a lot with Britney Spears songs, Christina Aguilera, etc. Ahh, the middle school days where I thought glitter nail polish was the coolest thing. 🙂

    Thanks for another great Way Back Wednesday entry. Keep them coming!! 😀
