    Progress: We have tentatively established August 2-5 as the dates for the 2018 national/summer retreat! This is the big one, and if you can make one retreat this year, try to make this one. You will not regret it. Go ahead and pencil these dates in on your calendar if you don't already have plans you can't get out of. ;)

    Steps ahead: We are working on nailing down a location, and that's why I said "tentatively" on the dates. Our intention is to find a suitable location for that weekend, but there is always a possibility that we will have problems finding a place that really meets our needs on the dates we want. Please pray that God would direct our research to the place he wants us to use.

    Further bulletins as events warrant.

    What state will it be in and what days I can help find a great retreat ground for affordable or cheap price

    Working on that now. Letting @nathan and @julieb know you're volunteering by tagging them here. We are specifically looking farther west than TN or NC, so if you know what's going on on the ground in MO, OK, AR, say, then I'm sure they'd love to hear from you. Write retreats AT biblical families DOT org to contact them directly.

    MO would be nice. Would love to see the Richards again.

    MO would be great (as well as catching up with the Richardses)! But anywhere from SW MO down through eastern OK and northern AR is fair game. And not just James A, but anyone who knows of a cool place in that region please forward that information to the email address above or just post it here. We appreciate all the help we can get! :cool:

    I have some family checking outs some spots in Missouri and Arkansas. The In-laws are checking on that camp ground we use to live by on the Missouri/Arkansas border. Also I have family checking out the Kentucky area.
