Thank you so much for your prayer covering over our ski trip! We had a wonderful weekend, packed with activities, truth from the Word of God and great fellowship.
We left on Friday, January 17 around 9:00 AM and arrived at Lake Junaluska around 4:00 PM. Lake Junaluska is a Methodist retreat center with many hotels and bed and breakfast hotels to rent. We stayed at their Lambuth hotel, and they also provided our meals each day. We had our first session in the Word on Friday night, with Chaplain Michael Klein. We drove up to the Cataloochee ski slope on Saturday and Sunday morning and stayed there until around 4:00- 4:30 each day, then returned, had dinner and had our evening sessions each night. There were a few minor injuries, but no hospital visits!
Our theme for the weekend was ¨Come to the Light¨. I am so thankful to the Lord and to Chaplain Klein for allowing the Lord to work through him to bring us the Word of God each night.
I had been praying and asking others to pray for a move of the Lord while we were there, and on Sunday morning as I prayed for a mighty move of God, the Lord spoke to me and said, ¨I already am¨. In my mind, a mighty move of the Lord should involve lots of emotion, tears, etc, but that is not always how He moves. So I changed my prayer to, ¨Lord, let us have permanent changes in our lives from this weekend.¨ And I believe that there were permanent changes in many lives this weekend.
Romans 12:2b says, ¨...let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know
God´s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.¨
It is so exciting to see that transforming power of God at work in the lives of these students!
Thank you all so much for your prayer and financial support!
