Men’s Retreat

Intentionally Cultivating Life with God

One of the priorities GEM has for its missionaries concerns keeping their spiritual health and vitality in view. I love facilitating these retreats and this time, due to it being a wilderness retreat, I led every segment.  I did have help with the mountains. We had experienced people from GEM’s Camp of the Peaks with us.  

I encountered a good surprise — I enjoyed camping in the mountains outdoors as the environment for this retreat.  We camped in the French Alps and had beautiful vistas to take in and wonder at the greatness of God.  

Mornings and evenings around the campfire provided the context to sharing topics concerning the spiritual life and how God interacts. As we debriefed at the end, it was encouraging to hear how God had met everyone who had participated. Thanks for praying
