Speaking at a marriage retreat

November 14, 2017

About a year ago, Kent and I were at a retreat center near Yosemite with our mobilization team. While there we met the program director and a few months later she approached us about speaking for a marriage retreat at the conference center.

We were in the process of taking this assisgnment when I was diagnosed with cancer, so we asked to put off saying yes or no until after my surgery and prognosis. And since that turned out good, we decided to say Yes.

So for months we have been reading books, talking about what is important and how to incorporate our missions life and ministry in a marriage retreat.. so two weeks ago we did this marriage retreat at Silver Spur Christian Camp and Retreat Center. Wow, I was blown away by the fact that 50 couples came. They were wonderful and Kent and I felt God used us during the weekend. It was many hours of  preparations for Kent and I. It actually helped us to sort out things in our own marriage. That and the retreat were a big blessing for us too!

There was all kinds of fun things to do as well as the meetings. There were other couples that shared their lives as well. God used all of us!
