Youth Retreat – March 4th – 9th
I posted some pictures and comments at this link. I may post some more as time permits.
Update – 03/08/2011
It is the end of the last day of the 2011 Youth Retreat. It was a wonderful day. A great ending to a terrific youth retreat. What else can I say but Praise the Lord! And thank you all for your support and prayers.
I’m leaving the green suitcase.
We’re getting ready for the 2011 Haiti Youth Retreat. This year’s theme will be “War & Peace.” If that sounds a lot like last year’s theme, that’s because it IS last year’s theme. I had made plans to go last year, but the earthquake hit and my flight was cancelled. So I’m trying again this year!
If you want to help provide some of the supplies needed, the list is below. Some of the items could easily be purchased by multiple people. i.e. buy 1 bible, 5 pairs sunglasses, etc. and someone else could also buy a bible, sunglasses, etc. If you can’t help by providing materials, you can ALL help by praying. Also, if you would be interested in going with me (this time or some other time), let me know.
2,000 Q-tips – Got em. Thanks Tammy!
200 straws (regular size, straight, not bendable kind, i.e. able to shoot a Q-Tip )

If you have purchased some of the items above, you may post a comment below just so others will know and not get the same thing. I will try to keep the listed updated.
Thanks so much for your help and support!
