English Teachers' Retreat

One of my main responsibilities here in Brno is director of the English program at Majak. We've got a great team of teachers this semester: Sabrina Hadsell, Marian Graham, Alicia Robertson, Kristy Baysinger, and me. Before we started the semester we took a little retreat to get away and plan for our English semester. Our planning was not only for logistical issues, but a lot of it was spiritual preparation and praying for our students, many of whom we hadn't even met yet. It was a great...and very important...time for our team. It just always amazes me to see how God can take a group of otherwise strangers and bring them together to work for His glory.

And, yes, we had just a little bit of fun too. Our retreat location was the little town of Telc, a couple hours from Brno. We stayed right in the center of town and it happened to be right during the time of a Medieval Festival. Let me tell you, a medieval festival IN Europe is amazing. Enjoy the pictures!
