So, last weekend we enjoyed spending time together remembering Christ's suffering and the victory he gave us through his resurrection. We had a really good time together.
There were 70 people that were part of the weekend. There were families from 6 different house churches that participated. Around 10 of those that participated were either visitors and/or people who aren't yet Christians. God really blessed our time together.
We enjoyed our times of fellowship together........
.....as well as studying and learning biblical truths together.
We encouraged each other (this is one of my favorite pictures because it is one Christian and two not yet Christian men praying together on our first night).................and of course we had fun (these are the teenage boys allowing Anderson to get in the soccer circle with them).Garrett and one of his best buddies Kjeld (pronounced Kel-jee). On Sunday we praised God together at sunrise. We wanted to worship together around the pool but it was raining so we stuffed almost 70 people in this little gazebo. Everyone enjoyed our time together as we celebrated the resurrection of Jesus.We had a great weekend. I think the highlight is that one young man gave his life to Christ and wants to be baptized in the near future. We will blog about him soon. He is an amazing guy.
Too many good things happened during this retreat. We could never do them justice by trying to write about and show each photo. So, we've made this slide show from photos taken last weekend.
It was a good, but tiring weekend.
