Metanoia 2011

Metanoia means "mudança de mente" which means " movement or transformation of the mind", that was the name of the youth retreat. We helped organize and lead small groups during that extended weekend. Yes, our Portuguese was stretched and we can't stop praising God enough for His faithfulness in continuing to give us strength to keep learning, daily! Scott and I had the blessing of sharing a word with the teens, Scott spoke about temptation and I spoke about idolatry. To say that the weekend was a blessing, doesn't help truly capture how God moved and taught us all during that time. The youth retreat was held at the river community, a 4-5 hour boat trip up the Black River. It was tons of fun and I really enjoyed spending more time with the teens... learning from them and God move in their lives!

Here are some pictures of the retreat, there are more on Facebook on the 'Amazonia' albums, check it out!

Thank you so much for your encouraging words and prayer support during these last seven months! Bendiciones :)
