Saturday, March 5

Last weekend we had an Able Church winter retreat. It was the first function of its kind that we've had on the Camp Daniel grounds. There were about 20 retreat attendees, plus all of the Camp Daniel staff. They slept in the dorms, and ate in the Hartley House. Jen and Marceaux set up the one unfinished dorm room as a chapel/meeting area.
There were times for indoor small groups and lots of outdoor activities as well. We had a fire down by the lake while everyone split up into teams and played monkey ball. (it's soccer with your hands, on ice) Everyone had a lot of fun with great fellowship.

Thinking toward summer: Deacon Jim, from the Illinois youth group that volunteers here each summer, came up to decide on which projects they'll be tackling this July. On Friday, Tony Sr, Tony and Karol sat down with the salesman that we buy Camp Daniel clothing from. We ordered t-shirts, sweatshirts, and jackets for camp this summer. Tim Kelly had a great idea last year that we implemented; t-shirts for the red team and blue team.
