First Women's Retreat

We are excited to announce that we have had our very first lady's retreat!! This has been a desire of Hannah's for quite sometime. She struggled to find the right place for the right price. We called several different retreat centers but they required large groups and had big price tags. We made it a matter of prayer and God came through once again. One of our church ladies is a cook for a wealthy family. She was talking to them about our desire to find a retreat center and they were so kind to offer us their farm. It was the perfect place and better yet, it was free!!!
The farm had a nice big yard, swings, and a guest house that had several bedrooms and bathrooms.
Teams of ladies took turns cooking the meals.
All four churches were represented. Many of the ladies did not know some of the women who came from San Pedro Sula. Hannah did a great job programming activities and ice-breakers. In this particular game the ladies held up a blanket and put a person on either side. They would then drop the blanket and the two ladies would have to say the other person's name first. It was a lot of fun.
The women enjoyed eating breakfast out on the veranda.
They had some very special services. Hannah along with several of the leaders of each church shared testimonies, and messages. God really blessed.
Yolanda shared her testimony how God has changed her life and did miracles. It was very touching.
Mirta shared the story about her son Nahum who was almost killed in a motorcycle accident. He was in a coma for months and the doctors had to remove part of his brain. They said that if he lived he would be a vegetable. God miraculously touched him and he began to recover. Today he is serving in the church, walking and talking on his own. God still heals and can do the impossible!!
 God's presence was real in the services!!
The ladies worshiped the Lord with all of their hearts!
Some delicious grilled meat!!
 Water relay game!
 Bible pictionary! 
 Playing group games.
Drop the clothespin in the jar game.
Making tortillas.

The retreat was a wonderful time for the ladies to get to know each other and to draw closer to God. They hope to make this an annual event. We want to say a big thank you to the Hispanic ladies society in the states who gave money to help us cover the cost for this event as well as the Hobe Sound, Spanish church that also sent an offering to help make this possible. May God bless you for your kindness and your willingness to invest in souls!!
