Area Retreat Update #2

7 Oct

Hello Friends and Family – Well….It has been a crazy wonderful few days. We arrived in Mexico on Saturday and have spent the past few days getting orientated to the weather and hotel where the retreat is. All 25 of our youth team have arrived safe and sound and have jumped right in to working hard.

Tonight we had out first event; an open house the students and parents to come and meet the youth team, get to know their small group leader and hang out. It was SO much fun and so cool to see students and their parents again after 4 years.

Please be praying for our team as we enter into a BUSY BUSY week.

Please also pray for safety amongst us – we’ve had a few close calls but the Lord has continued to protect us. We start our full program tomorrow morning then we will be go go go all week long! I can’t wait! Internet is a bit sketchy right now but I hope to have more time to update again soon. I also hope to post the videos we are making on you tube for you to see.

Thank you so much for your prayers! I’m so thankful for all of you and for my job – I LOVE IT!!!!!!!

In Him, Ruthanne

**Note about the picture…We are a chaco loving team here. Almost all of us have a version of these awesome sandals and we thought it would be fun to take a pic. This picture also reminds me of all the different walks of life people are coming from to be here and that we all have beautiful feet that are carrying the word of God!**
