We were incredibly blessed by our time at SEARCH. There is so much involved to putting on a conference. This one was even more complex, since they run an enormous used book sale. The SEARCH staff ran a well-oiled machine.
Since we had been to CHAP last year (another amazing, extremely well-done conference), we saw quite a few familiar faces. We enjoyed fellowshipping with old friends and meeting new brothers and sisters in Christ.
On Friday, Dad and Mom’s first session started at 11 a.m., and the guys had a session as well. The day passed quickly with more sessions. Hearts were tender and receptive to what was shared. Since there are eight of us, and we all have different roles (speaking, book tables, etc), we interact with many people. Come Saturday night, as we’re in the bus driving, we love to talk about memorable conversations we had. Through the feedback shared, it was obvious hearts had been encouraged and strengthened in the Lord Jesus. It was also a joy for us Maxwell children to be able to speak to the young people. One highlight for Dad was sharing a new session called, Where Are You Headed After High School? We hope to offer it as an audio resource sometime later this year.
We see clearly why the Lord brought us to the conference: to be used of Him to meet specific needs. May fruit be brought forth!
Enjoy the pictures, which will give you a taste of our time there.
