Retreats and Classes

I went on a student-led retreat this past weekend. I think the pictures will speak for themselves, but the Lord definitely moved among some of the group in a powerful way. Retreats, for me, are some of the most difficult weekends, but they are worth every minute of work. Because our ministry is geared towards students, we have to take advantage of long weekends as they are generally very occupied during the school year, hence the many retreats we go on. I, however, am not a student. I am a worker. Retreats, from my end, include organizing, leading, cleaning, cooking, and discipling. But no matter the climate or conditions, God always moves in a mighty way.

9 guys slept on the floor in one room:

I should also write a small blurb on my class that I'm taking. Below, you can see the building, from various shots, that I study in. It is very modern and new. My class is going well. For classmates, I have a German, English gal, two Chinese ladies, and 3 Frenchmen. Its quite the class! I'm learning a lot of new things that I know will help me with my professionalism. Also, you can see my Colombian Student ID. FUN!

QUOTE: I could not say I believe. I know! I have had the experience of being gripped by something that is stronger than myself, something (someone) that people call God.
