Youth Retreat

The past weekend I was able to attend a youth retreat with my church.  It seems like it is normal for each youth retreat to happen at a beach.  It was great to have a car full of people driving to the retreat at the beach at Imbe, Rio Grande do Sul.

The housing at the youth retreat was very cool and many people slept in tents outside the main rental house.

Hanging out with People

Youth retreats can be very tiring and many people including me took a naps whenever we were able to.

I was thankful for all of the conversations in English and Portuguese which I was able to have with the people on the retreat.  I think that the picture below really shows how much fun we had.

Fun Times

We had a party the last night at the beach and I think that many people had lots of fun.

The drive home from the retreat was great and we had some great conversations and even had one fall sleep during the trip.

One thought on “Youth Retreat

  1. Dear Benjamin: Youth retreats are vital to the spiritual, emotional + fellowship growth of young people. No matter where they are on their relational journey with Christ, their attendance at each retreat adds positive steps to that. It can also be a time of growth and reflection for the leaders as they seek ways to better minister to the youth + their needs. While personal life experience will be used by the Lord as you minister, there are nuances (+ sometimes glaring differences) in the needs of current youth that need addressing. God bless you + other leaders as you learn, reflect and reach out to young people with the help of the Holy Spirit. Love + prayer, Auntie Carolyn
