We had 13 entries into our 3rd Annual Chili Cook-off! I was caught in a 3-way tie for second place… we had our friend, Dougy, break the tie by tasting the 3 chilis… but there wasn’t any of my “Silly Chili” left :( But good memories nonetheless
Emily and I lead worship for the very first time ever. That was a new experience and, thanks to the counsel of a couple good friends, I think it went pretty well
Watching a new romance blossom between two of my friends
The last night was very memorable. I remember being prayed over by friends and family who love me. They sympathized with my struggles and encouraged me in following God’s Will. It’s amazing to think that I have so many people who love and care about me- and I love and care about them
Mikvah-ing in the freezing, cold lake. I loved watching everyone’s hilarious faces as the came up out of the water :D… of course it was touching to hear testimonies of God’s amazing grace in people’s lives. We did the baptisms after a study on that very topic
Late night talks with good friends
Getting to know the kids. It was fun to play with the kids and hear their stories. We had a blast making up stories and telling each other “Tall Tales”. A tall tale is a true story with exaggerated details to make it more interesting :)
As is the tradition, we had a night devoted to the Variety Show. One of my favorite parts of Sukkot is watching everyone perform- some acts are serious and some funny… mostly funny but always enjoyable
The birth of the blood moon, haha. If you want to know why this is funny then you should have been at Sukkot with us
Please share some of your favorite memories with me. I’d love to hear some of your stories. What did you learn this year? How were you blessed? What are you doing next year? The correct answer to that last question is that you will come spend Sukkot with the Hub in Indiana ;) Don’t forget, we will have a cabin for single men and a cabin for singles women.. so, singles, we have room for you!

P.s. Enjoy this little video that Emily put together!
