Retreat!

Retreat! Sometimes we just need to get away from everything to remember who we are. That is what it was like for Brenna. On the third night at 71Five’s Middle School Camp this last week, she reflected, “I have not felt this able to be myself in a long time. I feel good.” We can see the value in drawing back from the world in the life of Jesus. He retreats to the wilderness time and time again to reconnect with God and disconnect from the world’s distractions. Each time he returned, he was filled with the Spirit, ready to take on the world (literally) being grounded in the trusting relationship He has with His Father. What an encouraging thought: that Jesus gave us access to the Father in that same way. 
 
71Five offer kids like Brenna, who has been attending for about a year, trusting relationships that lead to a life of hope – a life walking in tandem with Jesus. Thank you for your continued prayer and partnership with 71Five Campus in Phoenix and Talent. God is moving through your efforts!
