As part of the closing session, the YAADs presented financial gifts to each of the co-moderators and to the stated clerk. They took up a collection from all the YAADs and got enough to give $500 to projects dear to the hearts of each person, so that amounted to $1500 from their pockets. It was so touching and brought tears and big hugs.
The GA ended with another worship service, but I had to leave to catch a bus to the airport. So I leave St. Louis and a fantastic and life-changing experience at the General Assembly.
