Ski Retreat

We just got back from taking the students of Refuge off on an adventure to Winterplace, WV. A great time was had by all. The students enjoyed learning to ski or snowboard and I don’t think many of them had seen that much snow. The trip there and back went well thanks to the masterful skill of Johnny Hutto driving the bus. Each night we had Refuge LateNite in which the students learned “How Not To Be a Fool” with a focus in Proverbs. Did you know there are over a hundred different verses in Proverbs alone that talk about being a fool? The students do. Jared Knight from Union, SC. came up with us and led our students in worship, God really spoke through the message and music, so much so that we had one student make a decision for Christ. I had one student say to me “Ya know what I got for Christmas?… A broken arm!” (We only had one of those). Thank you to all who helped support the trip financially and through prayer and thank you to those adults that went with us, you did an excellent job!
