*Me, waiting for the other choir members to get on board*
Yesterday and last night was just wonderful! The choir and I went to see Morris Ceurrlo and other special guest from different countries and cities speak live at his conference in Rosemont. Let’s just say that I couldn’t wait to go to Rosemont again! I haven’t been there in a few years! I also can’t wait to go there next year with my babe and brothers!
So I went to the church with my childhood friend (We were actually early, cause we got there at bout 4:30-4:45. The bus didn’t come until bout 5:15-ish. Once it came, we all got on board. The bus was just amazing! These are the seats, by the way. So luxurious!
They have tables and seat belts! 😀
Miss Sheryl actually wanted all of us to check out the menu from Giordano’s after we leave the conference. I never had it before, but it was kinda expensive.
Crystal and I. We’ve been friends since grade school. 🙂
Anyway, as soon as everyone got on board, we were off. Destination: Rosemont is a GO! 😀
While we were on the road, we decided to warm up and prepare for the conference by singing a few songs (Yea, we were singing there. It was unbelievable.. almost EVERYONE there stood up when we sang Lord You’re Holy and What A Beautiful Name. A few were on their knees, praising Jesus and just crying. It was wonderful).
Lol funny board ad.
You know you are close to the airport when you see the airplanes flying a short while after they took off. This was near O’Hare Airport, by the way.
If you’re traveling to Illinois, I recommend going to Rosemont.. it’s a nice place, and there’s TONS of hotels and restaurants here.
DoubleTree and Crowne Plaza hotel
We made it to our destination: The Hyatt Regency O’Hare hotel. I actually stayed in there before for ACEN (Anime Convention) a few years ago. It is a very nice hotel.
Conference schedule and special guest speakers. Our pastor, Steve Munsey, was one of the guest speakers.
Before the choir got on stage to sing, we decided to look around and check out some stuff.
After our performance, we took a peek at some stuff, from Israel, and other countries.
“Jesus, you are great. You do miracles. So great”.
We actually had a chance to hear Morris Ceurrlo and one of the speakers, John Francis, speak. It was a wonderful experience.
After we left, we went to Giordano’s.
We sat on the balcony, but it was chilly. Sadly, we didn’t stay long, and decided to head someplace else to eat.
We stopped at a ton of restaurants. Some went to Culver’s, others went to Steak and Shake. Raquel, Ebony, Shani, Crystal, and I decided to try this pizza place called Little Angelo’s. The food was great! I highly recommend trying their food out, especially the pizza! A few of the youth praisers went there as well, so it was indeed fun!
After we ate , we went to Cold Stone Creamery. Being my very first time here, their ice cream is yummy, but kinda expensive.
I had this: Confetti Cupcake ice cream. It was too yummy!
Last picture: Me and the girls before we went back to the bus to head home. I had a blast with them!
After we had our fill with food and ice cream, the choir and I went back home. We didn’t leave Rosemont until close to 11:15-11:30-ish. Everyone was tuckered out. Most of them went to sleep on the way back. I gotta admit, the ride back home was soothing. I almost dozed off a few times. Raquel, Ebony, Shani, Crystal, and I didn’t get back home until close to 12:30-12:45. All in all, I had a blast. The conference was wonderful, and the trip was amazing!
What an amazing day to start off September.
