Let me skip ahead to a special activity that we did during the 7th week of Life FOCUS. On Wednesday last week, Director Ritchie planned an outing as a reward for wholeheartedly working through the last six, intense weeks. We traveled to Green Acres canoe livery on the Whitewater River in Harrison, Ohio for an adventurous canoe trip. For the students, it was a very unexpected and well-received surprise.
For five hours straight, we canoed down the river, floated around in the water, and played a huge game of capture the flag. The game was played on several islands in the river so fording waterways and running in rough terrain were a few extra challenges! It was a great time to relax, enjoy God’s creation, and have fun as a team of adventurous, young men.
