We were thankful to the Lord this past week for providing for our team a 3 day retreat. We had a beautiful facility, lovely company and a wonderful speaker.
Here is most of the team, minus two couples and a few children...
These kids had a blast together. The retreat facility had a lot of space to roam and make noise. Too fun!
Reverend Chris Folkerts was able to come and speak words of comfort and encouragement to us. He pastors a very small church, but the members of the church were very supportive of his coming here and even donated all the funds to get him here. Small churches, working under the power of God can do great things! His trip here has truly been used in a great way to build God's kingdom and we are so thankful to the Lord for that!
On our last day we also prayed for our missionaries that are leaving the field after many years of faithful service. We sent them, as it were, back to the field in America to continue their service. May God be glorified to bless their new ministries and work.
