Bonaire Youth rally

Oops, I hit the enter key prematurely and got some of these pictures out of order. But if you scroll down, you'll get the whole story eventually.

About 90 young people came to the youth rally. They did a great job decorating the building with a watersports theme.

The young people sat on giant driftwood logs, when they weren't standing to sing.

Snacks were available after the rally.

The next morning when I came in to set up the sound system for church, all evidence of the rally was gone. One would never have suspected that the building had been transformed into a windsurfing beach 8 hours earlier. Rumor has it that some of the cleanup crew was there until 4 am. Posted by Hello

What is hanging along the side walls under the windows? It looks like a rope with something attached every 6-8 feet. Flags rolled up, perhaps?

You're exactly right. In connection with the TWR - Bonaire 40th anniversary celebration coming up this week, we've put up the flags of the various countries that we broadcast to from Bonaire.
They must not have fit in with the beach decor of the youth meeting, so they creatively rolled them up and tied them off.
I'll try to remember to get a picture or two of the flags this coming Sunday.
