    We concluded another incredible season of Spring Outdoor Education in April, and it was once again amazing to see the Lord’s hand at work.  Every week we saw God’s Kingdom grow, as students surrendered their lives to Him.  One of my favorite things is to listen to the stories the counselors share about the conversations […]
