Through the help of brother Kwon and brother Richardson who came up to the campsite to serve our youth group, we unloaded the truck full of supplies including the tents and 50 gallons of water. While the students were engaged in ice breaking activities, our two brothers including the teachers set up the tents in quick order. They also grilled the meat marinated by samonim and Esther 집사님 the day before. We enjoyed a hearty meal that became one of the highlights of the retreat. The teachers served faithfully in the background through leading small groups, making sure that the food was ready and that the students learned to recycle.
We thank God for the fellowship, worship, great food, and the bonds that were formed during this camping trip. We thank Pastor Sung for speaking to us an important message on “Thirst,” for teacher Josh leading all the activities, for all the teachers who served faithfully, and a special thank you to our two brothers who we couldn’t do without. We thank our church and mokasnim and samonim for their support and prayer.
We look forward to our next retreat!
