The Great Outdoors

Have you ever seen snow on the fourth of July?  Well, a group of our kids and adults took a week to pause and get away from the business and noise of everyday life.  While traipsing through nature, they got to see amazing sights like snow in July.  They went backpacking in the mountains of Colorado while carrying everything they needed on their backs.  They had a wonderful time and bonded with God and each other in fantastic ways.
