Man Vs Wild 2009: Highlights & Lowlights

Man Vs Wild 2009 039

Highlights

  • The same amout of students that went came home, meaning we didn’t loose anyone. Although, there were some students that I wouldn’t have minded leaving on the hill…just joking.
  • On the teaching aspect, I went on a different track then originally had planned. I used a tomahawk as a object lesson; it looked better in my head. I talked about what the world would be consider a man to be, then read Galatians 5: 22-23 “the fruits of the spirit.” The whole idea was to show that a “real man” possesses these qualities. Real men are gentle, and kind. Yet are adventurous and aggressive. I think the boys got it.
  • I got connect with two dads that demonstrate what real men of God looks like. These guys are awesome; great servants heart, dedicated, kind. I’m blessed to have known David and Nathan.
  • Being able to hang out in God’s creation. This place was beautiful…look at the pictures for confirmation.

Lowlights

  • I became super sick on Friday night. Vomiting and the somethings else bascially kept me up all night. This effected the entire next day.
  • I wasn’t able to summit the peak (see above). I made to the cabin, but wasn’t able to physically do it. Think vomiting with every step.
  • There were some students that were unable to hike with the group the next day due to asthma or something else.
  • Drama for you mama. This almost became a girls retreat…urg!
  • Having to driving students home that live all over creation at the level of exhaustion…not one of my favorite things to do, but comes with the territory.
