The last week of camp was a music camp. Each day, the campers joined together in a band to practice marching and playing their instruments. Half way through the week, there practicing was put to the test as they played the National Anthem at a Brewers game. It was amazing to hear them play and to see how talented each person was.
I still cannot believe I was able to see Lecrae perform at a concert in Milwaukee! It's crazy because I was still at camp and I knew I was not able to make it. But I began to think and I realized that it was the last full day of camp and that I could possibly have a chance to go.
To make a long story short, the event called Rock the Lakes started at 4pm; I arrived at around 6pm. As we were driving up to the place, I heard an announcer welcome Lecrae on stage. I screamed with excitement because I thought I had already missed him. It was great to see him perform and made my leaving camp early worth it.
Franklin Grahm preaching the message at Rock the Lakes, it was amazing to see all the people come forward to accept Christ.
I had to stay for the rest of the concert, even though I wanted to leave. However, honestly... I'm so glad that I did. I am not really rock and roll and do not know much about Skillet, for that matter, but they were absolutely amazing. I even cried because of the testimony that they shared. The music was loud and people were screaming everywhere, but it didn't matter.
After that, I must say that I love going to concerts and hearing live music.
