Report from Triennium 2019
Celebrate Presbytery of Wyoming! July 15-20, 27 youth and 4 adults participated in the Presbyterian Youth Triennium. It was amazing and extremely hot and humid time. What a week of transformation and community! Co-Moderator of the General Assembly Vilmarie Cintron-Olivieri sent the following text to General Presbyter Steve Shive:
Hey Steve! Vilmarie here. I served un Triennium as a small group leader and one of your Wyoming youth was in one of my small groups: ....What a great person! I also had a chance to meet some of the other young people from the delegation. They are amazing young people! I hope they continue to nurture their faith. Just wanted you to knowing. Blessings, my brother.
