Maxwell just had week of prayer in which we brought in guest speaker Pastor Keith Gray from Southwestern. Students attended morning and evening worship where Pastor Gray shared great messages with the students. On Friday, the school loaded up the students and we went to the Brackenhurst Retreat Center. For week of prayer, we had communion on Friday night and also round robin activities on Sabbath afternoon. Pastor Gray shared some amazing messages that weekend and I consider his talks the greatest part of the weekend.
Brackenhurst is one of the highlights of my childhood here in Kenya. I used to love rollerblading around the place finding chameleons and playing on the playground. I ended up bringing two chameleons back to Maxwell from Brackenhurst and letting them go on campus. This is also the place where I first attended summer camp. This Baptist summer camp was a blast as a kid and probably the root of my love for summer camp. The camp has improved a lot since I was kid and now they we a really cool cafe and eating area with internet and a TV room. The gift shop, though overpriced, was and still is very neat. Saturday night, the school played the movie Ghost and the Darkness for the students. It was hilarious because some of the faculty would scare the students during the lion scenes and make a whole row of students jump out of their seats. The weekend was a lot of fun and I was so glad to finally return to Brackenhurst.
