Mentoring Retreat

On the weekend of October 23, my mentor group and I traveled to Blairesville, Georgia and stayed in my mentor's lakehouse for the weekend. It was such a wonderful time of personal and spiritual connection for our group. We had quite time Saturday morning...without ANY interruptions! The setting was absolutely beautiful since the leaves had really started turning. We each were assigned a meal to prepare for the group and everyone made yummy, delicious meals so the food was fantastic. As a group we discussed our session assignments and our testimonies. It was fascinating to hear everyone's stories and wonderful to encourage and affirm one another. On Saturday afternoon we went to a nearby State Park and hiked for what was supposed to be 5 miles but I think it ended up being more like 7 (ish) because we decided to go a different way than originally planned. The hike was absolutely georgous and the top of the mountain was breathtakingly beautiful. We sang "How Great Thou Art" at the top of the mountain looking down into a valley of bright red and orange color. It was like a vision from a daydream vision...amazingly beautiful. Praise God!
