An R&R Weekend!

R&R Weekend: A weekend that we as a college put away homework and studies and go somewhere to rest, relax, and have fun and fellowship.

This semester, we went to Leoni Meadows--it was an awesome weekend!!!!

We hopped on the bus Friday morning and headed to the camp

Friday afternoon, we had the opportunity to do a little rock climbing.  It was my first time doing it, but God taught me a huge lesson on faith.  The first time I went, I got stuck with nowhere to go.  I was holding on for dear life--I was almost halfway up, and my arms and legs were shaking terribly.  I knew I couldn't just stay there, but it was a long ways down!  And I would have to just let go....I would need to put my trust completely in the rope.  I struggled for awhile, trying to decide what to do, but finally I knew I needed to get down because my muscles were giving out.  

It was very hard to just let go, but as soon as I did, the rope let me down gently and slowly to the ground.  I have always known what faith is, but I am so thankful for this reminder that God gave me--it was such a clear demonstration of faith, I will never forget it!  I want to put my complete trust in Christ!

Getting ready to go!

We also got to go on a train ride!  It was fun!

One of our stops along the way--the weather station :)

After the train ride, several of us went on a 6 mile hike, and to be able to make it back in time for supper, we had to run most of the way.  It was awesome!--and, we made it back right on time! :)

Sabbath night, after worship, we went go karting!  It was probably my favorite activity the whole weekend!  I drove once, and I was a passenger once.  I never drove so fast in my life!

You can't pass us! :)

I am so thankful for weekends like this where we can spend time together as friends, and also spend more time with God.  I think the biggest thing I took away from this weekend was the lesson on faith.  I was also able to study it a little more on Sabbath--it was truly a blessing!  

And now--back to studying!
