POST 1 FOR JANUARY 22
I had a fantastic time at the Behold Retreat last weekend! The snow never panned out at Camp Sumatanga, but it was still very beautiful as usual and coooooooold! I am back, refreshed and ramped more than ever in my spiritual life. God is good--ALL the time. I thank the awesome speakers there: Justin Lookadoo (yes, that's his real name!) who spoke very frankly to us about all kinds of things--SEX, choices, Hell, etc. very avant garde and extremely likeable. Peder Eide shared his awesome praise and worship music, and Jared Hall amazed us with his illusions, otherwise known as magic tricks. I'm still clueless how he did what he did. The 40 youth that our church brought seemed to have a great time. Being that close to 15 of them went down and recommited their lives or made first-time committments to Christ is a testament to the power and awe this retreat had. It moved me many times! I could really go on and on about how wonderful the whole weekend was, but I have much to do today and even a sick one home from school. So, have a fantastic day and know how very loved you are by the One above who totally rocks my world. :)
