292 Delegates, 42 Christian Schools, 18 Countries...

I, Tammy, was privileged to serve as the nurse at the 10th annual Student Leadership Conference sponsored by the Association of Christian Schools International. It was 3 days of an amazing mix of cultures as the students broke into discussion groups, attended workshops, participated in worship - all to formulate ideas and action plans on how to be Godly leaders at the their schools. They were encouraged to "Be Strong and Courageous!" (Joshua 1:9).

The conference was held at a former Communist youth camp in the hilly area of Budapest. Though the camp is definitely showing its age, the area is beautiful with walking trails and woods. We were prepared for out breaks of H1N1 flu but only dealt with sore throats, headaches, and the occasional bee sting. The last evening a young lady had an asthmatic attack that required an ambulance. I was very impressed with their professionalism and quick response as they treated her on the spot without a trip to the hospital. Thank you for praying for the conference. No major injuries, lots of new friendships, and much inspiration for the students to go back to their schools with plans to share their passion for Jesus. And I learned all the different places a teenager can display a name tag! :)
