Okaaaaaaay soooo it was an AWESOME TRIP!!! After our drive to Burbank from Phoenix, we managed to get lost in the parkin garage headin to our hotel room...us girls were wonderin around some Civic center with ALL our luggage like ummm where is the Sheraton??? Finally I decided to use my mouth and asked an employee how to get there...LOL after the walk BACK we only had about 35 minutes to get ready for church Thursday night!!!
BUT I think our results for 35 minutes were pretty good!!!
Denae says I can always get ready faster than everyone else...I guess its just TALENT...LOL! Actually, I think its cuz I don't worry about PERFECTION!!!
Sooooooooo THIS is what Burbank looks like...I had always wondered!!!
To think, a CHURCH on Victory Street, Called Victory Tabernacle, Obviousley Bro. White thought the same idea like THIRTY YEARS AGO!!! Bahaha!!! Two years before I was even born...WOW I guess great minds think ALIKE!!! Of course, I woulda known all this ALREADY if I had ACTUALLY read the Youth Alive Flier!!! HAHAHAHA!!!
CLICK on the link below to read and see the rest...there is LOTS more!!! :)))
I'm VERRRRRY excited!!!
Jonathon, Seth, Zack, Travis, Bro. Sam!!!
(Btw- Bro. Sam is in the brown shirt, he is our youth pastor and just for the record, SORRRRY ladies he is MARRRRIED!!!! His wife, my good friend Sis. Janellie Bean couldn't make it cuz she just had an ADORABLE lil baby girl!!! But the rest ARE AVAILABLE!!! SOOOO GET YOUR NETS;)
Liz, Me, Denae, Delora, Sheree, Selena
(We're ALL available too just in case you were wonderin!!! LOL ;))) Btw- isn't my shirt like soooooo CUTE?!?! I LOVE IT!!!
Hollywood house of terror, was THE CRAZIEST, FUNNEST RIDE EVERRRR!!! Although, i'm not to big on like all the weird haunted house stuff, THE ACTUAL ride was soooooooo much funnnn!!! I had NO idea what was going to happen BUT when my chair dropped out from underneath me and I was like literally airborn...OMW...it was sooooo AWESOME!!! I was tellin my sis about it and she was like, I CAN ONLY IMAGINE YOUR SCREAM!!! Thats right...it was LOUD!!! :))) Also, "Soaring over California" is just AMAZIN!!!! Its not scary just sooooo much fun!!! It seems soooooo realistic I promise you if I didn't have that seatbelt on I would soooooooooo have ended up in the middle of the screen durin the ocean waves scene!!!
Bro. Calhoun preached two AMAZIN messages!!!
Bro. White, he didn't preach but he is the pastor and founder of Youth Alive...I THINK!!! LOL But I know he is a really good preacher cuz I have heard him before and I still remember from like YEARS ago this series of lessons he taught at our Bible college about a woman's place and how she shouldn't try and compete with guys or be equal to them cuz she isn't, she is actually BETTER, (Okay maybe the BETTER part is my own words, LOL) But I know Bishop Abbott DOES say that woman are up HIGHER than men like, on a pedastal, and when they try and be EQUAL to men they are actually bringin themselves down...NICE!!! LOL!!! :)))
My BEATIFUL Friend Kendra!!!! I love this girl soooo MUCH!!!
I was sooooooo SURPRISED to see her when she walked in the first night!!! I looked at her and thought to myself OH WOW, that girl is REALLLLY pretty!!!

Not that I mind, its a great church, and I have lots of friends from there, and we all chill together a lot, its just NOT MY CHURCH and everyone kept askin me where the rest of my youth group was and I'm like, this is pretty much it!!! And they are like, WOW, what happened to EVERYONE ELSE??? (I guess 11 from like 100 is a HUGE difference...HAHA!!!)
I'm like well there are a few more at home but thats it and they are like, WOW, but you had a whole BUS FULL last year!!! I'm like BUS??? BUS??? WHAT BUS??? Oh, you must be talkin about the Garrett's church!!!! They are like, Oh your NOT from there???
I'm like NOPE!!! ABBOTT'S!!! ABBOTT'S!!! ABBOTT'S!!! I'm an ABBOTT GIRL ALL THE WAY!!! They have to take full credit and responsibitly for my cRaZy, AWESOME self!!! (Its an HONOR I'm SURE!!!;)♥Mary Frances :)
P.S. If anyone cares to know my opinion, which i'm sure you are all just DYIN for, I think it would be REALLLLLLY cool if Victory Tabernacle made a day service on Friday next year!!!!!!!
