This past weekend (March 21-23) was the National Youth Assembly. The weekend started by caravanning large busses overnight Friday to Yopal. We woke up Saturday morning in Yopal and started the retreat. For many of the youth, this was like a huge family reunion. By the time we left, it felt like leaving a family reunion for everyone. Like a youth retreat in the states, this retreat had dynamic worships, workshops, games (a pool), lots of laughing, and of course not enough sleep. I was asked to lead a session on youth empowerment. What an honor to be a part of this group and meet so many of the Lutheran youth from all over Colombia!
