DAY 74 (52 Days)

RECON FOR DUG! COSTA RICA PLANNING FOR LAURIE! I spent the day "reconing" (aka: doing reconnaissance of) campgrounds and mt bike trails with my good friend Paul Williamson - Director of Soul Adventures. Soul and GTD are teaming-up for our first ever retreat partnership. The retreat is called The Spring Break-Out Retreat and is geared towards youth 10-15 years old. It takes place during Spring Break March 30 - April 1. Reconing is invaluable. It's the first step at figuring out how to logistically accomplish our mission. It allows us to work through the learning curve, make mistakes, and implement immediate solutions so that the entire group doesn't have to experience the setbacks of doing something for the first time. A lot of times reconing can actually be uneventful and somewhat boring, but today was a blast as we zipped down some exciting mt bike trails at Alafia River State Park.

While I was away from the office "playing" Laurie was at the office working diligently on our upcoming summer mission trips to Costa Rica. She loves to work on mission trips and pieced together the preliminary agendas for 2 private events planned for June and July.

There is a lot of good stuff going on in GTD and we are thrilled about what God is doing and where He is directing.

It's an exciting time to be a part of GTD!
