Many things happened during this retreat.....I will only mention 3 of them so I wont bore you.....
1. I had some great bonding time wit my gurls Teresa and Betsy, which I would not trade for da world ( i luv those gurls). Those memories will never fade my ladies, they will forever remain in my heart.
2. I realized the spiritual state of these international students, C-onfused with a capital C! They dnt know which god to believe in. For example, on guy I sat and chatted with told me he doesnt believe in any god. His dad believes in 24 gods from the Jain religion, his mom believes in some god he doesnt even know, and then they sent him to a christian school. So he threw up his arms and said enough I just wont believe in anything, and I can't blame him. Please be pray'n for these kids that the scales will be lifted from their eyes and they would be able to see the One True God. I also will be getting more involved with them on a weekly basis at youth group on Friday's, also pray that I will be a mere reflection of Christ so that I only lead them to the cross.
3. And lastly, the other thing that came of this trip. But first I must tell you where I am at. I am at a unique place in my life, where I thought I was in Africa to help Africa but inreturn I think Africa is helping me. Helping me discover who I am and who God is. And because life is at such a slower pace I am able to sit down and meditate more than I ever did in America. And one thing that has been on my mind is wut do I love doing and wish I did everyday of my life. And I realized it last week..... CAMPS! I dnt know what that means or what will become of it I am just throw'n it out there is cyper space.
