Anna Gilgenbach served as a rally youth leader for the teens at St. Peter, Fond du Lac, Wis., a group which included her daughter Natalie. “I attended the WELS International Youth Rally when I was younger, and I wanted Natalie to experience this as well,” she says. “There are no words to describe the feeling you get listening to over two thousand teens sing their praises to Jesus.”
