Live from the GYC  
Hey, guys! I'm currently at the GYC 2010 Conference in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. The conference is from December 29 until January 2. So far it is amazing! I am having a blast, and periodically throughout the day, I try to tweet something of interest. Follow me on Twitter.

I am also trying to blog about each day over at my Christian blog In Focus. I am one day behind on the blogging due to technological problems. Hopefully, I can catch up tomorrow. (It is already 1:20am and I need to get up by 6am if I want to make the 7am morning devotional... AH!) You can read about Wednesday night and the keynote address. http://www.realtimebelievers.com/blogs/2010/12/29/gyc-2010-wednesday-night/

Just briefly: Here at the GYC, I am attending the 6-part seminar presented by Mark Finley. It is officially titled "Rock-Climbing 101: Strengthening the Foundations of Our Adventist Faith", but when Pastor Mark began the very first session this morning, he said gave the series a different name or the subtitle: "How To Have a Rock-Solid Faith" and explained that each session would touch on a pillar of our faith that is under attack: certainty of the Bible, Jesus Divinity, Creation, The Sanctuary/Judgment, Three Angels Messages, and lastly the Spirit of Prophecy. We finished the first four sessions today, and the message was absolutely profound. The last two sessions will be tomorrow morning, and I plan on be just as early as today so I can snag our front-row seats once more! If anyone is interested in my notes from this seminar, just Note me. I might not be able to reply until Monday when I return home, but I will answer you!

In addition to being a bright-eyed and bushy-tailed participant here at the GYC, I am also volunteering as an usher so I literally have little to no free time during the day. However, ushering has provided me with some amazing experiences today alone. The Lord is truly blessing me through this experience and the people I am meeting. I look forward to tomorrow!

Your sister in Christ,

I also attended the GYC 2010 Conference (my first one) and I went to the last two sessions presented by Mark Finley on Friday, December 31st. I was really blessed by those seminars and motivated me to study more on the pillars of our faith. I'm not really sure on how to "Note" you, but I am interested in your notes on the seminars. Also, I'd like to ask if you'd be interested in reading my entry on GYC 2010: http://manny535.livejournal.com/8243.html. May you have every blessing!
Your Brother in Christ,

Hi, Manny! Sorry for the delay. The "note" feature is from DeviantArt, where I originally posted this entry. I must have forgotten to edit the entry before re-posting here.

It is good to meet another first-time GYC attendee. That was an amazing conference! You probably saw me in Mark Finley's seminar... weird blonde lady in the front row with a Macbook on her lap. =) I will be attending the 2011 GYC in Houston, TX, as well.

Anyway, I will send you a link to the notes from the Rock-Climbing 101 seminar later this week!
