Every year my church's Sr. High heads up to Morris, PA for a two night, three day retreat. As a high-schooler growing up, it was one of the most important trips for me every year. It was always a chance to get away, strengthen my faith, and me encouraged by leaders and other believer's my age. Now that I'm done school, I have the opportunity to be a youth leader and was able to go on this retreat with our Sr. High this year. I can't even begin to describe what a blessing these teens are to my life. I'm really starting to grasp all the things that I've been through and how God was just preparing me to be able to be an encouragement to younger girls. I couldn't have asked for a better weekend.
To all the girls in my small group: You are more of a blessing to my lives, as your leader, than you will ever know. It's been so awesome seeing so many of you grow in your faith over the past few years; can't wait to see where God takes you through these next years of life; I couldn't be happier to have been a part of it.
...& our whole group
...'til next year!
