Oh the drive . . . it’s still a long one. We left right on time with a great group of students and headed south. The trip was pretty uneventful, which we consider a good thing! We stopped a couple of times for gas and bathroom breaks and then landed in McAllen at about 6:00pm. We split up for dinner at Chick-fil-a, Wendy’s, Wingstop, and a few other places. After dinner, we drove fifteen minutes to Melody Lane Retreat Center and unloaded our bags, made our beds, and moved into our dorms. We had an hour of down time to do that and then we met for our Share Time. After Share Time, we broke up into our small groups and discussed Matthew 22:37-40. We have a prayer request. We’ve sent Lance Rushing, one of our adults, to the hospital tonight. He’s been having back pain for the past week and this morning it moved to his stomach as well. It’s been pretty unbearable. As I’m typing this, he’s at the hospital and they are running tests. Pray for his healing and recovery. Also, please pray for lives to be eternally changed this week.
