Retreat Recap

The weekend retreat went really well. Saturday night was the most powerful session. I shared how Jesus comes and dies and brings us to the Father in his own righteousness despite our sin (not exactly in those words, but you get the point).

Then I challenged the students to respond in some form to Jesus. Sunday morning I asked how many kids prayed to receive Jesus or renew a commitment to him and nearly 2/3 of the 26 students there raised their hands. God moved despite the technical difficulties we had and I think he was probably behind them in the first place teaching me to rely on his power and not my own.

I had a blast hanging out with the kids and seeing my friend Kyle. He is doing a great job and maturing more and more as a leader. It felt good to do ministry with a friend again. The role of speaker is something I have never had before and I enjoyed it a lot. My prayer is that God would continue to give me opportunities to teach and share from his word.
