3rd Annual ACF Fall Retreat

We just got back from an AMAZING weekend in the Poconos!

Friday afternoon 35 students packed up and left for what they thought was going to be a fun weekend with friends. While it was fun, it was also so much more!

Friday night our speaker, Gibson Largent started the weekend with this video:

Then he asked this question..."Our lives could be 99% over, we do not know when we are going to die. The question you have to ask yourself is: Will your life have mattered?"

And so began a weekend of asking big questions.

The Lord was in and around conversations that happened all weekend. Whether it was listening to Gibson, hiking up a mountain, sitting on the porch enjoying the view, or sitting around the fire at night, the Lord was so close.

Gibson's final talk was Saturday night. At the end he gave students the opportunity to make Christ first in their lives if they had never done so.
3 students prayed to accept Christ that night!


I wish you all could have been there. We welcomed our 3 new sisters with joyful tears and lots of hugs!

Here are a few pic from the weekend thanks to our very own Rose Huber! And yes, those are stilts that a few students tried out! Also check out the gorgeous views, we had the perfect weather all weekend!
