Rainy Lake International Falls, MN
One week trip to Rainy Lake, on the Minnesota/ Canadian Border is great way to get away from it all. Relaxing, getting close to God’s creation, watching beautiful sunsets, crystal clear water, friends, time for reflection, stories of faith, Bible study, singing, laughing, eating delicious food are some of the things experienced on a week long Houseboat trip. No phones, computers, jobs, curling irons, blow dryers, make-up, television, boom boxes, headsets, household chores, or other distractions. This is truly a week to get away and be renewed!
Quotes from the trip:
“This was the best week!”
“This was a trip where I could really be myself.”
“I became friends with people I didn’t expect.”
“God was present everywhere”
“I feel relaxed and refreshed.”
“I loved the campfires and all the singing.”
“I found time to think and pray and grow closer to God.”
These are just a few of the comments we have heard. Our lives are so busy. This trip offers a chance to clear your mind from the everyday demands. It is a time to grow deeper in your faith and deeper in your relationships with others.
A Typical houseboat week . . .
Each day we begin with breakfast on our own boat. Morning worship is led by a different small group each day. Our Bible Study and discussion follows until lunchtime. After lunch we enjoy a quiet time to read, rest, and enjoy nature. The rest of the afternoon is spent enjoying hiking, swimming, boating, fishing, playing, doing crafts, engaging in conversations and just being together!!
After supper, we prepare for the evening campfire worship which is led by a small group. It’s a favorite time of day.
