Three Eden Mennonite Church youths write about their 'desert experiences' during a retreat this summer to Osoyoos, B.C., which was combined with worship-leading and service work at Kelowna First Mennonite Church.A group of Eden Mennonite Church youths from Chilliwack, B.C., spent time in the desert around Osoyoos this summer, learning to practise the spiritual disciplines, including prayer and service.Sitting in the desert alone and hungry for three hours at first seemed long and pointless, but it was one of the best experiences of my life. It's very rare that anyone can find time like that in their busy lives to talk to God or even acknowledge him in any way. As I was sitting there I started to notice every little bug, cactus and living thing around me, and I remembered that God made everything there. It's amazing how perfect his creations are.
