2013 CFC Retreat


December 5-8 2013


What started as a normal day at the Willowood Ranch in Bells, TX things were changing slowly. The cool cloudy day led way to a cold steady rain. As the day wore on the cold steady rain gave way to a freezing drizzle and by the afternoon of December 5th 3 inches of solid ice was covering the entire landscape of north Texas.  This was not going to stop the nearly 70 people coming to the 11 annual Calling for Christ retreat.  By that evening, and numerous back and forth trips on treacherous roads to the airport, God had guided nearly everyone safely to the ranch.  There were only a few that had to cancel their trip.  The ice storm continued the 5th, 6th and 7th.  Just as the devil tries to get in the way of our worship to our Savior Jesus. We were going to be victorious and Jesus' name was going to be proclaimed!  The Spirt moved though this place and God was felt over the next 3 days.  Umpires lives were changed,  hearts were change and we gained brothers in Christ!  Jesus had made heaven just a little more crowded!  As I looked across the rolling hills of North Texas everything was so still, calm, peaceful and wonderfully covered in pure white snow. It reminded me of the song "Nothing but the Blood of Jesus". 

Who can wash away my sin
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
Who can make me whole again
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
O precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow
No other fount I know
Nothing but the blood of Jesus

God bless you all and hope to see you in 2014!

With love,
CFC
