First Love Retreat....


We love because he first loved us. 1John 4:19
It was a wonderful time of preaching,teaching and fellowship with so many like minded Christian woman. We heard a very moving testimony from a young woman,on how the love of God carried her through a very difficult time in her life...she is now leading praise and worship services and reaching many for Christ. God did some awesome things in this retreat...its really hard to put into words just what it did for me.


Can you believe they had rides set up for us...something I did not expect at all at a retreat.
My daughter really needed this...she had been burdened by many things. She was so touched by one of the work shops she attended on marriage. She came away being renewed in her spirit. Thank you Jesus.


One of my favorite rides as a young girl....


I actually got on this thing :) Believe it or not!


Having a little to much fun Ladies :)


Our small group.....next year we hope that all our ladies will attend and be blessed as we were.


Blessings on your week,Shelley
