This past weekend was … well, it was just the BEST, too! It’s such a blessing to hear from the guides how they share the Lord’s goodness with their young hunters. And also how the Lord speaks to the guides themselves through the weekend. We’ll be posting more testimonies from them along the way.
This was our fantastic and somewhat crazy group:
Here are some photos during meal time along with Mitchell and Kasey’s (maybe just a little bit exaggerated) story about Bill going out to conquer a skunk crossing the back porch in the early hours of Saturday morning.
“…for the rest of my life.”
After an inch of rain, the weather cleared up Saturday and it became a beautiful day. It gave time, before going back out to the blinds that late afternoon, to take our guests out for a ride around the ranch and to the breeding pens to meet our tame does. As one of the boys was hand feeding a doe, he made the comment, “I’ll never forget this weekend for the rest of my life”. And THAT is the experience we pray for each of our guest while here at Crossroads.
There is a very special ceremony the last night around the fire pit. It’s a very purposeful time. It’s the culmination of weekend experiences and conversations. It’s when barriers are broken and gratitude arises. It’s when the Lord is raised up and glorified. The foundation and purpose of this time around the fire is built on the scripture from Proverbs 27:17. “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.”
