Woke up at 7:30 in the morning for devotions, and had breakfast at 8. Breakfast consisted of cinnamon buns and other breakfast foods. This retreat site is a seventh day adventist place, so they don’t serve any meat dishes. Even some of the “scrambled eggs” this morning was a tofu dish. Was super good though.

Had three messages in the day: two in the morning (very close together) and one in the evening. The messages in the morning were split by a short games time led by billy. We played screaming viking and boom-chika-boom.

Lunch consisted of non-meat meatballs in barbeque sauce. Again, extremely good.

Had some single gender organized activity in the afternoon (girls talk while guys played basketball), and then free time. A lot of us went and rode the 1/3-scale train that goes around the leoni meadows campground. It’s a 4-mile-long route that goes into the forest. Was quite neat.

Got dropped off at the nature center at the end of the ride, and looked through the exhibits for a bit. Visitd the “zoo” outside, where they had a couple of week-old lambs.

Had a life walk with michael (first one with caleb was before the train ride), and then played some more bball with the guys after getting back.

Dinner was non-meat burgers. Everyone was commenting on how the “chicken patties” tasted just like mcdonalds chicken sandwich patties even though they weren’t actually chicken.

After the final message, we had a short discussion time, and then hangout time in cabin 43 (the extra cabin we’ve been using for co-ed activites). Played some king kong shower, and then a game of mafia.

Went to bed at around 11 or 12, and this time everyone went to sleep pretty quickly.
