Students With Kaleo Project Work in Costa Rica » A group of students from all across Rocky Mountain Conference are in Limon, Costa Rica this week working together on three major projects. Much of the group is helping to build a church, many are preaching an evangelism seminar (there are 16 meeting simultaneously every night), and some are conducting a week of prayer at a nearby school.
"It's cool to see students from Mile High, Campion and other schools working together at the building site," said Christian Carr, a freshman at Campion Academy.
While this may not be their first mission trip, for many, it is their first time preaching every night for eight days straight.For three of the students, this is their fourth evangelistic trip since the Kaleo Project began and they love the opportunity of sharing the gospel.

New and Changed Edition of Winterfest Expected for Next Winter Season » After 20 years of its ministry for hundreds, even thousands of people, Winterfest is set to undergo a re-formatting. A new edition of what has been a tradition with families, colleges, and academies in the Rocky Mountain Conference will be unrolled in the next winter season, according to Steve Hamilton, RMC youth director.
Through the years, Winterfest has gone from being a great recruiting tool for colleges and universities to a family, fun-filled day for those on the Front Range. Former attendees will recall many happy memories, including Christian concerts, basketball tournaments, ski races with measles to be won. Now the turnout and commitment to is has long since disappeared. With only 40 people turning out during its latest edition, February 27, it became obvious that change was needed.
As Winterfest has seen its last Sabbath, February 27, "we are eager to see what God is going to put in its place for the future," said Heidi Littell, RMC assistant youth director. "We have been truly blessed by what Winterfest brought to the Rocky Mountain Conference. Now, we're looking forward to what the future holds." [Heidi Littell]
