    Favorite church memory: How is it possible to ask me to give just one all time favorite memory when I have been a part of this church for 18 years! I could start by saying the time when we convinced pastor Lisa to let us have one more lock in one random Wednesday in the summer, or the time where we went to church camp and I won a pizza party for the cabin and didn't have to suffer through the dinner we had that night. But if I had to pick just one, I would definitely choose the time I went to Toronto and somehow Drew Middendorf, Zach Copeland, and I convinced our favorite bearded man that It was a good idea to let us have our own room together.. ( i think it was the 26 hour bus ride exhaustion and he got tired of us whining to him about it). The memories I made during that trip I will remember for the rest of my life. One memory that sticks out in particular is when I went to my site and met a wonderful girl named Ruth who decided the tall blonde guy was her personal jungle gym for the next couple days. The time I spent at my site and in Toronto will not only be my favorite memory in the church but one for the rest of my life.
