The first time I took my son Will to a JH Outback weekend, I confess I didn’t really want to go.

I didn’t know anyone there.

I had no clue what were we going to do for an entire weekend out in the middle of nowhere.

How could this possibly be fun?

I couldn’t have been more surprised with the way the weekend turned out.

Immediately, we were welcomed and put with a team of mothers and sons who were about Will’s age. The weekend was awesome: “glamping” (glamor or luxury camping) in a beautiful place, fun activities, and spending precious time worshipping with my son.

It’s the only time just the two of us have ever gotten away and had our own adventure.

Outback America was really fun, and yet, it was more than just a good time—it was meaningful.

I was reminded of what’s most important in life—my relationship with God and with my son. I discovered some things about myself that I hadn’t realized before and came away with some practical tips for enhancing these relationships in the future.

The weekend turned out to be more than just an outing—it was a blessing, both emotionally and spiritually.

Since then I’ve volunteered at Outback weekends, just hoping to pass the blessing on to other parents and teens or husbands and wives (there is also a marriage program). Each camper pair is prayed over from the day they sign up. The weekend program is carefully planned for both groups–focusing on relationship building and learning by doing.

Over the years, I’ve seen people forgive each other, broken relationships mended, and saving faith in Jesus Christ born. Some couples have torn up their pending divorce papers; several teens and adults have been baptized in the river.

Outback is just 48 hours, but the experience can last a lifetime.

The Huntsville Outback is the last weekend of April, 4/26-28. It offers campers a once in a lifetime experience in the beautiful Paint Rock Valley, near Huntsville, AL. There’s not another weekend quite like it.

In fact, I’m so sure the weekend will bless you, I’m offering a FREE Outback weekend to ANY of my subscribers who want to come with their teenager or spouse.

This offer (a $395.00 value) is for the Huntsville Outback only and will END Friday, 4/5/19 .
