wow please pray

God really works in mysterious ways sometimes.

My first two years of undergrad, I went on and staffed a retreat called Lone Star Awakening. The Awakening program has spread to lots of colleges and diocese around the country, and Lone Star was specifically for the diocese of Austin. However, in 2002/2003 it kind of died. New leadership came in and didn't like the retreat and the retreat just couldn't survive.

They tried a couple times to bring it back, but nothing ever really materialized.

However, last fall the young adult director for the diocese decided it was worth bringing it back. I heard through the grapevine that she was working on it, and I got involved. She decided to schedule the first one for the end of March to give us plenty of time to plan. However, the week before our first meeting she got fired and the retreat got cancelled again.

A couple months go by, and then I get contacted by a colleague of the former young adult director. They want to keep Lone Star going and they want to keep the end of March date. A couple more weeks go by, and they decide to finalize the decision, the retreat is definitely happening. Well, that finalization happen last week. Now, we have 5 weeks to plan a retreat in a program that has been dead for 5 years, and we don't even have enough people to fill the leadership team for the retreat!

Our first meeting is Monday. I know that God is going to pull this off, but I have no idea how exactly that is going to happen. Please, please please pray for us. I'm feeling a little overwhelmed right now. I've been fighting to bring this program back for 5 years, and I can't believe it's finally happening. Now that it is, I'm scared it won't be a success because if it's not, it's probably going right back into that coffin. Plus, I have so much going on already. But I can't not do this. It's too important.

All I can say right now is wow.
