Fall Retreat 2018
What a sweet time together at Big Sandy! Despite the chilly outdoors, it was warm inside with love for Jesus and each other. Our keynote speaker was Dr. Karen Gustafson - affectionately know as "Dr. G." - a distinguished teacher with an extraordinary heart for God and people. She served 18 years as an international worker in Argentina before her current position as professor of psychology and counseling at Crown College.
Our IW (international worker) speaker was Nicki from a Creative Access Country. She had us laughing and crying as she shared story after touching story of the multi-ethnic people in their ministry center overseas, Nicki's caring heart and transparent spirit were evident as she encouraged us to continue to pray specifically for the people and needs of her country.
We enjoyed time away, relaxed to the sounds of whispering pines and lapping waters, and were renewed and refreshed in body and soul. The annual Fall Retreat provided a weekend with new and old friends sharing times of fellowship, reflection, and laughter. Fabulous food, a variety of activities, break-out sessions, inspiring worship, as well as solid Biblical teaching all combined for a great weekend away.
