Happy New Year! 

Man my vacation was great. Much needed. Courtney and I got to go to Breckenridge, CO on the CCBC High School ski trip this year as leaders which was awesome. I had some great guys in my room and we had some awesome discussions about God, different beliefs, etc. On the second day we were there, while I was going up the lift to Peak 9, the winds were gusting up to 60 mph and there was tons of snow, so much that I couldn't even see the lift chair in front of me. It was unbelievable. I've never seen that much snow in my life. Skiing through that was insane but tons of fun. I only had one major spill where I kind of hit my head on the ice, but I was okay, though I had a bit of a headache for a while. It was all worth it though. Jon Dansby and David Phillips gave talks on hell, heaven, the point of even believing in an after-life, and the necessity of understanding hell in order to understand what Jesus actually took upon Himself on the cross. It is unfathomable and we can only get a taste of what He experienced, but it is so highly necessary to understand how serious hell is and that there will in fact be eternal torment there for those without Christ, that there are people there right now even who died without Christ, and that if you don't believe in Christ, hell awaits, the deserved, eternal wrath of God. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Thank God for Jesus Christ who by His blood ransomed men for His own possession! Anyway, I'm about to go out of town again down to San Antonio to be in a wedding for my friend Josh Sutton. Also, Courtney and I will be staying with Jason and Marla Smith, two former leaders with the high school group at CCBC, so that will be a ton of fun. Well, later ...
