Quick summary of the weekend

Our Fall Retreat came to a close on Sunday with a whopping 220 students in attendance! By far the largest retreat we've ever had. But it wasn't just about quantity either. As my friend Nick said at the end, "I'd wager this was the best Fall Retreat ever."

I could tell you story after story about how God is at work in students lives preparing them to live a life that is dangerous for for the Kingdom of God. Including one guy who came to the retreat to just check out Christianity and gave his life to Christ. I could also show you pictures from our super-hero dance party (lot's of spandex and capes) and our ridiculous staff hunt water balloon game...but I won't.

One of the highlights was that our big meetings were in the old Union Pacific dining lodge. People used to ride the train in to West Yellowstone, go check out the National park and then come back and eat dinner at this big lodge. It was sweet.
