A few weeks ago we took a group of teens on an overnight retreat to a conference center called Maranatha. This place is state of the art, every building and all their equipment; it was wonderful. When we got there and the girls saw where we would be staying some girls were literally brought to tears because of how nice our lodge was. It was incredible to see them be so thankful. The weekend was designed to help them break down walls that stand between them and God. We had a speaker who did a fantastic job of reaching them right where they are at. Every single teen and leader were challenged to go deeper in their faith. We had a lot of fun too. We did 2 "team building"
games that I knew from working at Camp Kearney. At first these games were challenging for them, and not everyone would participate, but by the end everyone was taking part and they were beginning to gel together as a team; it was great to see! God definitely worked in each heart, and now that we've been home a few weeks everyone is challenged just simply by being back in their normal environment. So please pray for these teens, they need the strength to put God first in their lives.
