Fall Retreat

Tomorrow Hans and I head to Big Bay, MI, for the UP InterVarsity fall conference (called Cross Training). It will be a time of Bible study, teaching, and recharging; of community, encouragement, and renewal for students from Michigan Tech, Northern Michigan, and Lake Superior State.

Last year Hans went by himself, but this year we are taking advantage of newly retired grandparents who are willing to drive 5+ hours to spend the weekend with their grandson to enable me to help at the retreat as well. I’m excited to spend the weekend getting to know students better and to challenge them to follow God fully.

Please join us in praying for the weekend:

  • That students will gain a greater understanding of what God is doing on campus and see how their lives fit into His work in college
  • That non-Christians attending will understand who Jesus is and desire a relationship with Him
  • That students will be recharged spiritually, physically, and emotionally by a weekend away from campus
  • That Caleb and my (Lindsay’s) parents will have a weekend of fun and bonding, with little (or no) stress from mama and papa being away

Here are a few photos from last year’s Cross Training:



Yep, that’s Lake Superior, the first weekend in October!
