Youth Retreat 2015

A couple of weekends ago we had our annual youth retreat! The topic for the weekend was spiritual warfare and we had a local pastor there as our speaker. Although we talked about lots of different things within that topic, we also thought about what it practically means to put on the armour of God. It was a great topic to dive into! 

There's actually a really sweet story behind the cottage - one of the older men in my church, years ago, saw that there was nowhere for young people to meet and have these kinds of youth retreats. So he built this place! It was a joy to be there during the weekend.

On Saturday we hiked up the mountain we were staying on - it really wasn't a long hike - and had lunch up there. Sadly the visibility from the top was practically zero, but the food was very good! 

During the weekend it was so fun to spend time with our young people, in small groups and over meals. I'm so thankful for our youth group here and that I get to be a part of it!

Some more photos below.

All good retreats have silly games!

The beautiful view out the window!

2 degrees, the perfect temperature for a hike!

The "view" from the top!

But the food from the top was worth it! Fried cheese and chips!

The way down.

I love old windows.

The room I shared with some of the other girls!
