Area Retreat Update #1

30 Sep


Hello sweet friends and family –

4 Years Later….
The picture above was taken 4 years ago at my first Area Retreat in Panama. It was at that retreat that this whole journey of joining the Global Youth & Family Ministry team began for me. Many of these students will be returning to this year’s area retreat. I am so excited to get to reconnect and continue the relationship that I started 4 years ago with these students.

On Saturday I head off to Mexico for the 2010 Latin America Area Retreat. I, along with the GYFM Team will be leading a team of 25 Youth Workers from all over the U.S. We have been planning a week-long retreat for all of missionary kids (4th grade – College) whose families serve in Latin America with Mission to the World.  Over the past 6 months hundreds of emails have been exchanged, talks have been written, games have been planned, and videos have been created.  All in the hopes that these missionary kids who attend this retreat will experience the love of their Heavenly Father in a new and exciting way.

Please keep us in your prayers as we “put feet” to all of this planning. We are all really excited about this trip and pray that this retreat will be a watershed time for these students and their relationship with the Lord.

Please also be praying for our health and safety as we travel.

I hope to send out several updates during the retreat to keep you up to date on all that the Lord is doing and let you know how you can be praying specifically. I’ll feature a different picture every update so you can really see what is going on.

I’m so thankful for each and every one of you.

In Him,
Ruthanne
