“Fighting For Delight in God's Word by John Cleary was inspiring and comforting. It reminded me that God's work doesn't have to be a chore and it’s really something to we can delight in,” said Hannah Martino, from Michigan. This was one of the breakout sessions that she enjoyed the most.
About 3,600 people attended the Summer Institute, of which hundreds were guests. We had nearly the same number of guests as last year.
The most heavily attended plenary session was the Thursday evening teaching by D. A. Carson, Understanding for the Simple, out of Psalm 119. The breakout sessions were also very popular with no major overcrowding in the classrooms. Hannah’s brother, Brett, attended his first XSI and said, “It was an amazing answer to prayer! God spoke and it wasn't a whisper!”
