Fifteen Youth and seven Leaders from Fair View spent the weekend in Caswell Beach, NC with 750 other students and leaders from the Western North Carolina Conference for the youth retreat.
Our speaker, Jeremy Steele, gave us four engaging messages over the weekend from scripture 2 Timothy 1:7. (you’ll have to look it up 😊). Of the four messages, the most memorable was watching him build a cinder brick wall and then destroy it with a sledgehammer – destroying Popularity , Poverty , Hatred and Race.
The band; The Advice, provided the incredible music to share in the experience of worshipping our God with 700 young adults and students.
We were able to help pack some health kits for Solehope.org during our mission time. Sole Hope is an organization headquartered in Salisbury who provide clinics and education for the people of Uganda to fight against crippling foot parasites called “Jiggers”.
Thanks to Katherine’s broken foot we were able to get reserved seating in the front row of the auditorium, right in front of the seven foot subwoofers. No wonder they packed ear plugs in our leader bags lol. Jaden makes it to the stage one night and wins at Charades, and Alex gets a shout out from the stage for attending the YeTI program in June. Great lodgings, Plenty of food, and Hot sun also contributed to a very memorable weekend. Thank you, Fair View, for your support on making this trip possible for many of us. Looking forward to SpiritUs 2019!
