Cornerstone retreat!

This week the STM team from Grace Church arrived and we went on our Cornerstone Retreat! 6 countries were represented at our retreat....Australia, South Africa, America, Canada, New Zealand, and ...(honorary...China!)
Group photo of all 31 of us!

"Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity!" Psalm 133

Jesse Johnson was our special retreat was so cold one morning we listened outside to his sermon! (hense the beanie photo~notice the awesome pulpit?!?) My favorite sermon of his was "To live is ___" Can you honestly put Christ in that blank? If not than the phrase "to die is gain" is meaningless because anything else in that blank would make it "to die is loss"

Baby Noah's first Cornerstone retreat...he was a great little camper!
Group shots before the sessions of the team and Cornerstone:

Learning how to kayak....legend has it that there is a croc in this lake, but we never saw it, but it did keep our toes out of the water!

Kayaking on the lake was so amazingly beautiful....we had great fun racing and splashing each other....

Two Archers playing Archery (see baby Noah in the baby bjorn? :) Clint got a bullseye...and than missed every other time! (nuts!)

Hanging out by the lake
The sunsets were amazing!

All the girls
And the guys!

Thank you to all of you who sent amazing gifts from America (chocolate chips being my favorite!) It was like Christmas!
