Young guys

hey guys, I have been interested in the MKP for a few years now and even began pursuing my dream of attending a weekend. After many emails back and forth as well as a few phone calls with an influential guy there (who was very nice) I was politely told that the weekend is more for older guys and while there are annual meetings in my area, in which guys get together at a local church and further share and bond, because of the nature of these meetings (they discuss feelings and their deepest…See More
