This past weekend the team ran a three day camp for students at Unity College. It was a beautiful and tiring experience with my highlight being adoration. I hadn’t gone into the camp with the expectation of having a prayer experience myself. In the days leading up to the camp I was more concerned with acquiring resources and going over the schedule. It was refreshing to find myself before Jesus in adoration. It was a reminder for me that Jesus is there in the midst of our work, particularly when we get caught up in the business of our own little world, it is important to stop and notice where Christ is working in our lives. God Bless. God bless, Brooklynn and the NET Team.
