Senior Retreat 2014

By Kristi

This Spring Break, the Seniors traveled up to Sierra Lodge for their Senior Retreat to fellowship, reflect on God's word, enjoy His creation, and consider His vision for our lives. We traveled nine hours  to reach Alameda, where we got to visit Mike and Joanna for dinner. The next day we joined everyone at HB for Sunday Service where we heard Pastor Ed give a message on the woman who broke the Alabaster Jar for Jesus. Afterwards we were invited to Pastor Ed and Kelly's house for brunch where we enjoyably breakfasted and heard many stories about Pastor Daniel and Sarah in their college years. Once at Sierra Lodge, Pastor Daniel gave us a presentation on the Lodge's creation and history. After hearing about all the great stories of mishaps and triumphs in making the Lodge, we were all excited with the prospect of building something similar for our Southern California church plants. The rest of the first day was a series of messages and testimonies concerning fears that we might have now that we are coming towards the end of our college careers. With so much to decide in the next few months, it was truly a blessing to be able to discuss difficult issues about our futures. One of the messages was on the parable of the Rich Fool, and we were given the challenge of living a life that is rich towards God in the time that we have. The next day we set out for Lake Tahoe and were shocked at how clear and blue the water was. It was too freezing to go in and too cruel too dunk each other, but some of us did accomplish some decent rock climbing. Lake Tahoe was colder than most of us San Dieagans could endure, but it was surely the most beautiful body of water most of us have seen. For  two of us, going to Lake Tahoe was their first time being "out of state" (into Nevada territory). Afterwards we came back and listened to Pastor Daniel give a Christian commentary on all three Lord of the Rings movies. Being able to see how fear has different effects on all the characters, but to see how some respond with hope and perseverance while others respond with despair, it was a valuable educating experience. And although it was late, no retreat is complete without a nice bonfire where we can sing hymns and share our experiences about what this time together has taught us. To make the trip even more memorable, it snowed on the last day as we were preparing to leave. We stayed a couple more hours to play in the snow, though some of us got carried away. Suddenly the entire lodge looked like a frosted gingerbread house and snowballs where flying into people's faces. Do you want to build a snowman? Already did. The retreat was truly a blessed time. Thank you for all your prayers so that we may really receive God's wisdom during a somewhat chaotic time for soon-to-be graduates. We hope that these memories can glow strong in our hearts and minds, thankful for what God has done in our lives these past four years and excited for what is to come.
