Encounter 2014

Thank you to everyone for your prayers this weekend as we went on a youth retreat with the High Schoolers. We were supposed to go out to Goroka, but because of road blocks we stayed at the Training Center which is a great facility on our Center. It was such an awesome time getting to hang out with the youth of Ukarumpa. We played games, had dance parties and most of all worshipped God in a real way. It was great to see the kids really getting vulnerable with God and letting him transform their lives. One of my favorite parts of the retreat was seeing one of the girls in my community group get baptized. We were blessed with great speakers that came all the way from the US to speak truth into these kids lives. It was a great trip with not much sleep, but plenty of fun. Please pray for Evan’s knee as he injured it while playing Rugby with the guys. We are hoping that it isn’t anything too serious! Here are some of my favorite pictures from the week…
