We have been very busy with our 2 college retreats. On Saturday, we spent the day with 1st and 2nd year college students from La Concha at the sports complex called El Solero in Managua. We repeated the same program Sunday with college students who had been from TAV & Rey Solomon. Activities consisted of Ice Breakers games, a game of Nuke ‘Em on the volleyball court, worship teaching, soccer, small group discussions, sports, a water balloon fight, crafts, and art. The goals for the retreats were to build relationships with sponsored college students, encourage them to finish college well, and continue to deepen their relationship with the Lord.
The college students seemed very excited since the programs were all led by our young adults near their own ages. They responded well when they realized that many of the issues they deal with at college are similar our team’s experience, even though they are from very different places. We spent the whole day laughing, learning, sharing, and playing together. It was a day of mutual encouragement. It was so much fun for all!
