I will start off by saying thank you to everyone who supported me on T.E.C weekend.
It was a really good and new experience for me.
On that weekend it showed me how much people love God and that they were willing to wake up early in the morning to go to church and worship even though it was like 20 below outside.
This trip helped me to connect with other youth on a spiritual level and also on a family level. We had snow ball fights; we ate together and just enjoyed each other’s company. What made me feel like I was far away from home was when I witnessed a group of deer running by our cabins. The cabins were comfortable especially the bed; as soon as you hit the mattress after a long day of worship it was an instant comatose.
All of the ‘wheat’ that I received made me feel like I was away for months, but that just shows how much love and support I have from my church family.
On this retreat I learned that no matter what happens you should stay strong with your beliefs, and never let anyone or anything make you turn your back on God.
Thank you St. Joseph's for selecting me to be a candidate to find myself on that cold, cold camp but it brought me closer to God so I appreciate it. The whole purpose of that trip to me was to "Let Go and Let God." And it is at St. Joseph's Episcopal Church where you and God make it happen. My God, our God, is in charge!
Since we could not bring electronics on the trip, when I arrived home I almost forgot that I had a phone and computer. If there is another retreat at Camp De Wolfe I would love to go.
