all our buses arrived up at our retreat centre, camp medeba, safely and our first experience was going over the rules and then off into our cabins and back to the main room for session one. played some group games, one was a lemon eating contest, sweet! we then did karaoke worship, something I haven’t done in a while with youth, but we wanted to focus on being together and not a band or a speaker. this weekend is about the experience of being a family together.
jen ludlow, one of our youth workers, was our first session speaker and she nailed it. i have never heard the gospel explained so plainly and completely before. thanks jen.
everyone got small amounts of sleep but they are all hyped for the day. our second session started with everyone eating a two-foot long fruit roll-up. nothin like sugar in the morning. we will be breaking up into gender groupings for our morning session.
thanks for loving us and praying for us.
