Wow, what a challenging weekend! We just came back from Black Mountain, NC where over 280 staff and interns gathered who all work in our region (NC, SC, TN, KY and part of WV). The theme was "Surrender" and we were all challenged to go deeper in our willingness to be used by God. One highlight was getting to meet and interact with an older staff couple - the McLeans. It was humbling to sing "Great is Thy Faithfulness" standing next to a couple that literally opened up Cru's international missions in East Asia.
They shared their journey and some of the privileges they have enjoyed in surrendering what they "wanted to do for God." What God lead them to ended up being so much bigger than they ever imagined. -- very inspiring!
