At the beginning of September, our student ministry team had the opportunity to use the condo in Estes park that my family had stayed at earlier in the week. We had a great time brainstorming new ideas for programming, ministry, and other stuff. We also had a productive time planning out the rest of our 2008-2009 calendar. However, one of the most important things we did was to build team unity - since all of us have only been working together as a whole unit for a couple of months (Trevor and Amanda have been here the longest at one and a half years; I've been here for only six months, and Jay has only been a part of out team for about two months).
We got to see a really beautiful spot called Bear Lake and we also saw some Elk walk through downtown Estes park and walk across the main intersection in Estes.
