(Still getting caught up from the weekend) I attended Youth Advance, my church’s annual youth conference, as part of the Work Crew who work in the kitchen serving breakfast, lunch and dinner on Saturday, and breakfast on Sunday. We work hard, hardly get any sleep, (I think I got about 10 hours total the entire weekend) and have a great time doing it! People are really appreciative of the work we do, and are constantly telling you “Thank you for serving.”
I work in the dinning hall serving the tables, family style. The trays are heavy, and cleaning up the tables can be gross at times, but we always have a great crew, and we get the tables set, served, and cleared quickly and efficiently. CJ heads up this part of the crew, and she does a great job keeping us on track, and talking with the camp staff so we know what to do.
We wouldn’t have anything to serve without the cooks. They get up really early to make the food, dish it up and give it to us to take out. I don’t think we thank them enough for what they do each year, and no one really gets to see what they do until afterwards.
The third part of the crew are the dishwashers, who make sure we have the dishes so we can serve the food. This year on Sunday morning, the dishwashing machine broke and they had to wash all the dishes by hand! They stayed working on it until they ran out of hot water, when I’m sure they would’ve liked to have been done long before! Roe heads up this part of the crew, as well as the entire Work Crew, and always does an amazing job! I seriously don’t know what we would do without her!
Day 69: Thank you Lord for the Youth Advance Work Crew and all the hard work they put in over the weekend, so the attendees can enjoy their weekend, and giving us an opportunity to participate in the weekend and have a great time doing it!
What are you thankful for today? Leave a Comment and let me know, I’d love to read it!
