Jonathan Little gave me the details on an opportunity yesterday that I thought I’d share on the blog. Some of you may know a young person who would benefit from it. It’s a 40-day discipleship journey into one of the most beautiful parts of the country.

Something happens to you when you’re out in nature for an extended time. The poisons that have built up living in this world that seems stuck on fast forward get purged. The noise that fills our brains begins to fade.
 
And if you stay away from civilization long enough, you can begin to hear God speak about some of the questions that you’ve asked but never answered.
 
Questions like: “What is my purpose in this world?” and “What is God’s will for my life?”
 
God inhabits creation and speaks to us through it. He has the answers, different and individual for everyone. Our heavenly Father so desires to know us, and be known by us. He want’s to be pursued as he pursues us.
 
Knowing this, three leaders at Adventures decided to organize a 40 day wilderness expedition with a focus on discipleship this summer. It’s for a small group of young people age 19-25. So far eight (half guys and half girls) are signed up. Three more spaces are available for two guys and one girl.
 
They’re calling it “Journey into the Deep.”  The hike is in the canyon lands of Utah, costs $1600 and leaves June 24.
 
Reflection Pool EscalanteHere is how they describe it: “A study of Jesus’ life will show that he often withdrew to a lonely place to hear from the Father. Journey into the deep is an opportunity for you to find your “lonely” place and learn how to hear from the Father. We will be hiking the  by day, and sleeping under the stars at night.
 
Cut off from the world’s distractions, you will be challenged to focus on eternal things. The leaders will help create a safe environment will be created that will allow you to find what intimacy with the Father looks like for you.

The hike will be physically as well as spiritually challenging. The team will be living off of the bare minimum of rations and gear. There will be opportunities to learn primitive arts such as: building friction fires, lean-to shelters, and how to live off the land.”
