GFA Staff Retreat

Two weekends ago was GFA's staff retreat and the GFA families retreated to a Christian campground/retreat center near Huntsville, TX for three days of rest, laughter, and fellowship. We had a "bonfire" (in quotes because of the small size of the said fire) on Saturday night with an open time of sharing of things the Lord has been teaching us or things we are grateful for. It was such a blessing to me to hear from others and to also have an opportunity to share how much the GFA family had meant to me and to encourage the newer staff and students/interns to deliberately plug themselves into the fellowship as well. I'm convinced that the enemy will do almost anything to bring feelings of disunity or disconnectedness or loneliness. If he can divide us as Christians, he can slow the furtherance of the Gospel.

Here's a fun snapshot I found from the Saturday night bonfire...
