Youth Retreat 2006

We had a great time this weekend at retreat with the youth. Justin Franchino (in yellow) spoke on evangelism and methods for understanding what a person is thinking before giving them the gospel. This enables the person doing the evangelism to know what the listener is thinking when they hear words like "God", "grace", and "sin".

The youth worked hard to raise money to go on this trip. Here they are at the end of a carwash. It couldn't have been over 50 degrees this day, so two hours of being water-soaked was enough! All the students that wanted to go were able to go. Praise God for the finances that came in for this trip.

In February, these youth will have the opportunity to go to Dare 2 Share in St. Louis. Please be praying for them to receive the finances to go on this trip also.

Thank you for your prayers for this past weekend. This weekend I will be travelling to Louisiana for Thanksgiving Break and to visit my home church. I look forward to seeing you all--maybe even tomorrow night!

Love Carrie
