It was a hike that you will remember for the rest of your life.
You were only 19 at the time, but that very first time that you reached the summit of Eagle Mountain you knew that this was a day you would remember.
As a camp counselor in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, you were in some ways pretty similar to the rest of the staff. You had just finished your freshman year in college and you had spent most of your life participating in various Lutheran church youth group activities. You had attended vacation Bible school weeks in previous summers, so you were familiar with many of the parables and stories that you would be teaching. You had lead prayers in your youth group back home, so you were comfortable standing in front of the campfire and leading large groups in both music and worship.<
