Breakaway Update

Breakaway is going great!  I wish I had more time to post more updates but there is no way that the Breakaway experience can translate into words.

Sunday was our first full day at Breakaway and an awesome day it was.  Our students experienced an awesome day of worship, food, mild weather, and fun.  Bill Stanley is really communicating to our students!  At Sunday’s “Late Night”, we shared an awesome worship experience together as we served each other the Lord’s Supper.

Monday was an even better day.  The students were challenged to read the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5, 6, and 7) during their morning quiet time.  Some students shared that they had never read that much Scripture in one sitting.  Fourteen teams participated in the volleyball tournament.  It was a great day to be on the beach.  We had a candlelight service during Monday night’s “Late Night”.  Students were challenged to take a lit candle and take it to someone in the room and either encourage them or mend a relationship.  It was a beautiful experience to witness.

Have I mentioned that the food team is taking great care of us?  Jeff Dance and his crew should win an award!

I miss my girls back home.  Jaime is keeping me updated with Avery pictures.

I’m having an awesome time at Breakaway but I can’t wait to get home and hug my girls!

Continue to pray for us.
