Last month, I had the opportunity to take 9 of our men to the Peak Challenge retreat in Colorado.  Our men were challenged and pushed to try to get to the top of Mount Elbert, just outside of Leadville Colorado.  Mount Elbert is the tallest mountain in Colorado.  None of our men made it to the summit of the mountain, but they all made it farther up the mountain than what they thought they would.  This is an example of how God gives us strength to do the things that we see as impossible.  All of our men know that God gave them the strength to overcome what seemed impossible.  I now sit back and watch these same men overcome things in everyday life that they once thought impossible.  I enjoy watching the fear in their eyes dissipating as they understand that God gives us strength; we do not have to rely on our own strength to do what seems impossible.
