Wow! It's been a while! Things have been CRAZY busy as we've gotten ready for Spring. But GOD HAS BEEN GOOD! We've hosted several volunteer groups already, including The Rock Ministries all the way from New Hampshire, two sessions of MMAPers (Mobile Missionary Assistance Program) in RVs from all over the country, Hill Country Christian School of Austin, and one incredible couple from Colorado who stayed and worked with us from Christmas till the beginning of March. We've been working HARD to build new facilities and update/repair/clean our current ones, knowing that as soon as Spring Retreats begin, it's a mad rush straight through Summer Camp and back into Fall Retreats... whew!!!
Last weekend was our first weekend retreat! We hosted a Father/Daughter Campout for Windwood Presbyterian Church of Cypress, TX. This entire group is a blast, and it was really neat when I realized this was the first group that Claire and I volunteered for before we were on staff at CWR. My favorite moment of the weekend was bringing Claire up to the top of the climbing wall to begin training her on how to facilitate the High Ropes course.
Here's a few photos from the weekend... click here for the entire gallery.
More volunteers arrive today from Grace Covenant Church in Austin and Saint Matthews UMC in San Antonio to help facilitate CWR Spring Break Day Camps, an outreach to our neighbors in the Smithville/Bastrop community.
Please keep us in your prayers! We definitely need it! To join our Prayer Newsletter mailing list, click here.
Also, please consider coming out to visit us on Saturday March 16th. We're having a dedication of new facilities and prayer walks around campus. You'll be able to see where we live, what we've been up to, and how God is working! Also, CWR will provide a free brisket lunch.

Okay, that's all for now!
