After months of anticipation, the Times Square Legacy Retreat is almost here!  Our volunteers have arrived from all across the country, and we all met tonight to make our final preparations.

I feel very blessed to have so many volunteers returning after serving at previous Legacy Retreats.  Eight people volunteering this weekend are experienced pros, and I can't imagine doing these retreats without them.  Their understanding of what to do and how and when to do it is invaluable, and they make everything so much fun.

We also have a couple of newcomers to our volunteer team, and I am excited about the energy they bring.

Our wonderful volunteers not only make the Legacy Retreats possible, they make them truly enjoyable for parents and children alike.  The kids love the attention the volunteers give them, and the parents appreciate the opportunity to rest while someone cares for their kids.  Thanks to all of you!

Thanks also to those of you who have generously supported the volunteers with finances and with prayer.  We couldn't do it without you.  I hope you will check in over the next few days to see how your support is directly benefiting some very special families.
