    What a great trip. Can’t wait to hear all about it.

    The Tri-Water Adventure Camp has successfully traversed the Manistee River Trail. Now on to their second water adventure the Pine River tomorrow on a raft trip. Thank you all so much for your continued prayers for both the youth and leaders 🙏🏼 Keep checking this post for more pictures as the mobile service is slow tonight and the pics are coming in slowly. ...

    Love this! I bet they are are tired. Hope they have the energy to navigate the river. Continued prayers that all of you "meet" God on this journey and that you all return home safe. Looking forward to your report Jolie.

    What a trip this must be. It is great to be able to experience God’s beauty with peers who are also in search of a journey.
