Our students, interns, and wilderness staff will be leaving this morning for their annual 15-day wilderness trip in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Please be in prayer for them - for safety, for learning and growing experiences as part of a team, and for them to hear Jesus as He speaks to them away from the "distractions" of everyday Ranch life. This year the group will be having group and solo devotional times learning who they are in Christ. They will focus on "In Christ, I am. . .", "In Christ, I can . . .", and "In Christ, I will . . .". They will conclude their trip with the celebratory Agape Feast on September 7.
