Spring Break Trip to Black Hills

We just got back from our recent spring break trip to the Black Hills. We spent 5 days at "Storm Mountain Center", a church camp which I spent many years at, both as a camper and many more as a counselor.
It was a fantastic time, a really awesome mix of students, 9 of them total. We spent time in a study called "Battling Unbelief", hiking, prayer, making our own meals each day, going to Mt. Rushmore, going to "Jewel Cave", and spending lots of time talking and getting to know each other.
I was really happy with the turnout, it was a great time of relaxation, and even more importantly, a really great bonding time for the students.

Brandon and Erin were both able to make it, bringing their newest son Jonathan with them, which was awesome.

Thanks for your prayers for this trip, it was a really great time and it was like 1/4 of the cost it was last year!

I will post a couple of follow up videos to give you a taste of the time we had in the following few days.

As you can see in this video, we hiked up Storm Mountain a couple of times, this was at about 6:30am, in which we were able to see the sunrise!
