The fateful spring break retreat where Jason and I became friends...
I have been a Christian for almost ten years. My husband has been a Christian for nearly nine years. We spent the day at an alumni event for the college ministry we attended. It was a pretty fun day getting to hang out with people and hear about their lives, and talk about ours. There were a few events over the course of the weekend, but the evening one was a dinner, some worship and just fellowship.
After we got home and put our very sleepy baby to bed we had a conversation about what we were thinking. It was amazing that during the worship aspect we were thinking nearly the same thing.
We are so thankful to this ministry because it is the place that both of us really formed a relationship with God. We learned so much while we were there. Even though we now go somewhere else, we did not leave because we were upset or bitter. And looking back nearly ten years later we both wondered what life would be like for us now if it had not been for that group of people.
It's fun to look back and reflect on where you were and where God has brought you too. Jason became a Christian at this church, this is the place that taught me how to go beyond the words to an actual relationship with Christ, we met at this church, and are now married with a wonderful baby girl.
It's amazing to look back over the years and see that even though we are in the midst of what feels like chaos right now we serve and amazing and powerful God who has done mighty things in our life, and who will continue to do mighty things in our lives. Amen.
