This past week we had our first men’s retreat. There were 10 of us representing 7 different nationalities. We travelled to an area known as AlataAlgac. There is a small house owned by some friends and lots of room for camping. It was a great spot in the foothills. We spent a great day hiking along one of the ridges that runs up into the Caucasus Mountains. Each morning started with a “Thought for the Day” and each evening ended with an “Epilogue.” Several men took turns talking about their devotional life and what God has been teaching him lately. It was a great bunch of men and everyone really enjoyed themselves. Most of us just enjoyed getting out of the city and into nature where things were green and alive. Our first effort at a retreat was a success so next year we will be looking for more men to join us.
