From contest judge Kirsten Nelson: “Meeting and talking with my fellow judges as we reached our decisions gave me a sense of encouragement. We are healthy. We are strong. The participants showed us that there is a passion to share what God can do through us with others. It is not grandstanding or false modesty. It is humbly giving, and for that I thank all the participants for sharing their gifts.”
