Last weekend we took a group of 14 students & leaders up to a camp outside of Thunder Bay, Ontario for a joint retreat with a youth group from Thunder Bay. Corban got to stay “on the farm” with some friends of ours who live up there, while Caleb and I retreated with the high school students (he came home praying for the cows and the chickens, he loved them).
The best part of the weekend was seeing how well the students from the two groups connected. It was a breath of fresh air for the Grand Marais students to spend time with other Christian students who are their age. They learned so much just from spending time together and came back refreshed, encouraged, and planning more trips to Canada.
