I just got back yesterday afternoon from Malindi, on Kenya’s Indian Ocean coast, after a relaxing weekend retreat with men from AIM IS and Samaritan’s Purse. I had a great time at Turtle Bay, snorkeling, journaling, praying, worshiping, learning, and getting drowned and wrestled and punched and clawed in the annual AIM/SP water polo match.
My friend John and I led worship during the retreat, and Kirk Nowery, the COO of Samaritan’s Purse spoke and encouraged us on leadership principles from God’s word and his personal stories from his time at SP and working for John Maxwell.
Great times… but I lost my wedding ring during one of the snorkeling excursions! I’ve been snorkeling several times with it on (it doesn’t come off easily) but somehow a rogue wave slipped it off my finger without me noticing.
