Let me share an exciting report about our Student Ministry summer camp. On Sunday, many of our students boarded the bus for a summer beach retreat in Galveston. These teens have seven days for prayer, worship, outings, and lots and lots of time to rest and refresh on the beach.
Last night, I was texting Deacon Creighton Friedrich, who is leading the retreat along with his team. I wanted to know how things were going—especially since two of my girls are participants. I wasn't prepared for such a great answer. He wrote:
"The Lord is present in this place. They've been singing and sharing for an hour. I can only think of Jacob saying, 'Surely the Lord was in this place and I was not aware of it.' "
When he quoted this moment from Genesis 28, I was brought to tears. Our students are having a profound encounter with the Lord! There is nothing better to ask for as a parent, and as their Rector.
Pray for our students and Dcn. Creighton's team. I am delighted to see how the Lord blesses our students not only this week, but into an exciting year ahead.
