Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
from Plano Young Life!
There is something special about getting away to a new, beautiful place and experiencing adventure with your friends. I don't think it was just going skiing or just being at a Young Life Camp that made Ski Trip what it was. It was the community and the gift of doing life together combined with learning more and more of who Jesus is every single day. When Jesus walked with his disciples, he referred to so many things around him to explain the Kingdom of Heaven, our need for a Savior and the Love of God. From birds to coins to sheep to a Prodigal Son, he used parables and analogies to teach us. On Ski Trip, instead of birds and coins, we had a snow capped mountain that gave us many analogies of what it looked like to follow Jesus. We had to learn to trust our instructors, be patient with beginners, not give up when we were only half-way down, be content with our limits, bring darkness to light, and have thankful hearts to be in one of the most beautiful places on earth. Following JesusLike I said, it was awesome!
