Thankfully, my teacher’s meeting ended in time for me to say bye to Olivia and her friends as they left for the BETA Convention!! beta trip 004_resizeThis refrigerator box is going to be open and used as a replica of Olivia’s school locker during the skit!   See the Scripture on the front!! 🙂beta trip 007_resize

One of Olivia’s teachers was even telling me that the students decided that Joshua 1:9 had to be on the locker too…..see the heart in the corner?!? 

That was Nick’s favorite verse!

beta trip 001_resizeDuring the skit, they turn the locker around and there is a huge switch on the other side.  See Olivia’s initials..O.N.  

The slogan for Olivia’s campaign is

“Turn it O.N. for Olivia Nischan!”

One of the boys came up with that idea when they were talking about her being a “light” at school.  beta trip 009_resize beta trip 012_resize

Here’s Olivia with one of her favorite teachers! beta trip 013_resize beta trip 014_resize beta trip 015_resize  beta trip 017_resize beta trip 022_resize

I snapped a few photos of some of Olivia’s friends as they were heading to the bus.  Evan brought his Bible to read on the way.  I love this boy so much! 🙂beta trip 031_resize 

Here’s my last view of Olivia and her friend Sarah as they were pulling out…….

I’ll be driving to Louisville tomorrow right after school to watch their performance.  I’ll videotape her speech and the skit and share them with you this weekend!! 

Thanks for keeping all of these kids in your prayers as they step out to SHINE FOR JESUS at the Kentucky BETA Convention!!!
