“When I first started YOKE at the beginning of this year I was not sure it was for me. It was fun, but I just wasn’t into it. It started to grow on me throughout the year, but fall camp was a turning point. The YOKE Folk got a lot closer and I got to know our kids so much more. I was so happy I stuck with it and got to see God do some awesome things that weekend through our kids.
It was at the annual leadership retreat that I truly got close to some of the YOKE Folk. Now I can’t imagine life without YOKE. To me #YOKEis a fun, loving, crazy, and sarcastic group of people I never knew I needed in life that I now call family. I do YOKE because it’s a time I get to hang out with some amazing people and I get to hang out with some awesome middle school students. I get to help students come closer to God and show them that, though college kids don’t have it all together either, as long as we have God in our lives, we will always be one step ahead.
To me #YOKEis strangers who became a close family that I love dearly. (Also the last club when Tyler got water poured down his pants was one fantastic memory no one will ever forget!)”
