A couple of weekends ago, about 20 of us headed to Doublehead Resort for our "first ever" class retreat. We really had a great time getting away together! We spent time just visiting and laughing, playing some games, having devotional time together, and just enjoying the quietness that is there. There's something special about retreating away together and getting away from all of the distractions and the busyness in our lives. It was refreshing to spend quality time with our "sisters and brothers" and to have some time to refocus. Everybody really had a great time and said that they would LOVE to do this every year! Hopefully, those of you that didn't get to come this year will be able to next time around. A special THANK YOU to those who put all of the hard work into making this retreat happen...we appreciate you! Here's some pictures from our night away...

As you all know, some of the families in our class are part of a very worthy cause. They are helping to support the work of Mission Lazarus in Honduras. They give of their means every month to sponsor two of the children there. Jon and Stacy thought that our blog would be a great place to share this info about our class's sponsored kids and their pictures for you all to see. Thank you to those of you that are supporting such a great cause!

Our class just recently got back from a mission trip to the Baja in Mexico. They had a great weekend serving the people in San Quintin and surrounding areas. As always, I think our team was blessed just as much as the people in the Baja. Here are a handful of pictures from their trip. I will try to add some more later.
