youth retreat

we had a blast at our youth retreat. The k ids wee such a blessing we played games we had great studies and shared testimonies, the kids loved playing with these gigantic boxing gloves they were a huge hit. My hubby made all of our yummy meals he wanted the kids to have nice meals he had ribs, potatoes bread and a delicious salad my sister made. For breakfast we had pan cakes sausage and bacon and cereal than for lunch we had sandwiches chips and salad

Their studies were on purity worshipping and faith, The most amazing thing for me to see was how much there attitudes changed, they were begging us for more worship they were clapping there hands and praising Him . They begged us for another retreat friendships were made that were not there before. It made my heart happy and I personally had a blast hanging gout with them even though they made me stay up until 2:00 a.m. playing cut throat Mafia and hide n seek.

Sounds like everyone had a wonderful time! I love it when young people 'see the light' about purity and worshipping and serving the Lord of their own accord. Good stuff!

I keep hearing about that Mafia hide-and-seek, or maybe it was tag and will have to look it up for our church youth group. It sounds like fun.

Haha! The kids MADE you stay up until 2 or you made them stay up until 2! Aren't you the go-to-sleep-at-sunrise retreat gal? ;)

I hope these friendships blossom over the school year. Some of these kids need some new friends or some "real" friends and the school year seems to put a stress on everyone.

I stay away from anything that keeps me up that late now a days. It takes me too many days to recouperate. I did stay up until almost 2:30 with my son the other night. It was a great time of talking but dear me, I was soooo tired the next day.

Can't imagine doing this while pregnant though. EEEEEE
