The youth group here had a girls retreat this weekend and I was so happy with the outcome. I was worried like a nut that it wouldn't work out. I mean Obama had the roads shut down and we had to caravan and what if there were too many girls or we left one. A million things and it was prefect. Everyone showed up and made it back in one piece. Some highlights of this weekend:
-a set of parents that live in Costa Del Este made it safe even though the corredor sur was shut down (this is a big deal and they just moved here like 2 months ago)
-it was beautiful and sunny
-I got to do the first session, we talked about moving on and did some solo time
-we swam A LOT
-we had break out session for the girls about comparison, guilt, the Father's heart, transparency, courage, and giving God your best yes
-sweet mixed small group times
-dancing and singing to Taylor Swift at the top of our lungs
-night session was great, listened to Lisaaaaaa, had great worhsip time, great prayer time and all in the dark because the lights went out
-NIGHT SWIM with awesome pool lights and did the cupid shuffle in the pool (this was one of my happiest moments)
((((Maybe this link will help you visulaize... or not =))))
-morning work outs
-didn't hit any traffic on the way home!!!

SO good so much Jesus. I was just praying for freedom and peace and restoration. I was happy to see it.
