Freshmen Spring Retreat 2018
Written by a freshman at Koinonia.
On the weekend before spring break, the thought of rest and recreation was greatly appreciated. The freshmen got to gather at Longhorn Lodge to experience a weekend of devotion, friends, and lots of fun!
It was so refreshing to escape the stresses of campus and watch the view of the lake from the huge deck, star gaze away from the bright lights of downtown, and play some hardcore sports!
The freshmen got to experience God together both in bible study and in hiking through the nature He created. The main event was kayaking in the lake! What was originally supposed to be “peaceful kayaking” turned out to be everyone “accidentally” splashing each other and some even ended up tipping over and swimming… not naming names. Honestly, it was so much fun!
It was inspiring to hear testimonies, discuss scriptures together, and play some intense games!
Everything ended with some (old but gold) campfire songs… indoors! The rain outside didn’t stop us from making some really good s’mores, lasagna style! Yum!!!
~Oh! Almost forgot about the amazing dance chorography we all came up with!
