As I continue to think about MK Retreat coming July 26-31 in Orlando, Florida, I get so excited. Especially as many of you share your testimonies with me of how this event was the one challenging, life-changing event! I wanted to share another testimony from Patrick Warren Groves, MK to Kenya about how it MK Retreat revolutionized his life! We would love to hear yours!

MK RETREAT 2012
My MK Retreat Experience
While at MK Retreat I overheard two MKs talking about their plans to
start some kind of youth program in the country of their calling. My
siblings and I had been talking about the lack of youth ministry in
Kenya for a long time. However we never really did anything about it. If
it were not for this moment, and many others, I doubt there would be
Faith 'N' Love Youth Outreach Ministry today, or that I would've been a
part of its birth.
There was a lot that MK Retreat helped me get
over. That moment helped me get over the question, "can I start a youth
ministry at the age of eighteen?" I don't have to tell you that at this
age, we youths face a lot. Temptation is all around us, and sometimes we
make mistakes. So how could I possibly be one of the leaders in a youth
group! God is a merciful God. MK Retreat helped me remember that.
believe God used MK Retreat to empower and uplift me. Usually as a
young person, or perhaps even as just a person, you feel so much
pressure around you to conform to this world. You feel if you're not
listening or watching that, or you're not wearing that you're not
normal. At MK Retreat if you're not crying at the altar or speaking in
some strange language or trying to live for God, you're not normal. It
counteracts the pressures of this world, and makes you feel freedom as a
Christian. And, when you leave, you remember all those young people who
you've spent that amazing weekend with, and think to yourself, I'm not
alone, and that freedom you felt at MK Retreat goes with you wherever
I don't know what else to say, but thank you God for giving
me MK Retreat and my MK family! I can look back to that weekend and be
reminded of the love and support that is with me. I will cherish until
the day I leave this earth. I love you guys!!!
