Reunited, and it feels so good!

During a snowy March weekend, we had about 30 young adults attend our leader’s retreat at Eagle’s Wings.  Our leaders had a wonderful opportunity to meet in person again, reuniting with old friends. We were delighted to have the majority of those who serve in the camps and youth ministry with us for the weekend.  After the long pandemic with its various restrictions, it was a real privilege to be present in each other’s lives, to share and dream about the future. Fellowship was enjoyed not only in worship and meetings but also in preparing meals together and helping each other with daily chores, laughing, and encouraging one another along the way.  

On Saturday, leadership coach Aleksis Daume taught on strategic planning and gave the young people the opportunity to think freely about goals and ideas they have for Eagle’s Wings. After a productive day brainstorming and sharing ideas, everyone had the opportunity to spend time together talking in the sauna and looking at the little lambs on the farm.

Our time together was spent outside of everyday worries, in which we could think again and fellowship in our favorite place – Eagle’s Wings.
