The most beautiful place...





Yup - this place is for real! Grenoble, France is the most beautiful place I have ever been.

I spent this past week volunteering as a counselor at a youth ski camp. It was incredible in so many ways! The camp is based at a Torchbearers school and is run by a few families from different missions. This week was an outreach/evangelistic camp so most of the youth who came are not Christians. I had 4 girls in my room from 14-18yrs old. I had the opportunity to speak a couple of times during the evening sessions to share my story and encourage the youth. It was great to be able to have some really great conversations with some of them who are really searching for truth. 
Here was our typical day:
7a - wake up (only the girls... :-)
815a - breakfast
9ish - leave for the ski resort
1230p - meet somewhere beautiful on the side of the mountain to eat lunch together
4p - meet up to go back to camp
545p - Music and the Bible Message (Jonah was the theme of the week)
7p - Dinner
815p - games, time of sharing and discussion groups (awesome time!)
1030p - Tea and hang out time
1130p - kids go to bed (HA) and the leaders meet
1230 - I finally get the lights off in our room... at least I go to sleep if nothing else ;-)

This past week has been an incredible blessing and just good for my being, being in such a beautiful place. It was great to spend time with these youth and be able to pour into their lives, as well as meet some incredible other people who are working with youth (however different it may look ;-)

School starts tomorrow!
