P4O # 4

This year was our 4th Passion for Orphans retreat.
I wasn't sure what to expect.
I was excited about our new location ...
Beaver Creek.
The Charter.
Peak weekend for fall colors.

I knew I wanted Jody Landers and Lisa Qualls to come back.
As it turned out, Rebecca Vahle also spoke.
And we had 3 ladies star their story.  Short and sweet, but personal.

I also knew I wanted Megan to lead worship.

I was thankful to have 4 girls on the planning team ...
Bethel. Erin. Celina. Amanda

And Jaynee came again this year.

We only had 42 ladies there.
That was discouraging.
BUT it was perfect.  Absolutely perfect.

With 3 main session speakers, 3 ladies sharing their story, Amanda teaching on attachment ...
and the removal of breakout sessions, which were replaced with discussion groups
and extra free time ...
it was an incredible weekend.
It was the best retreat yet.

So, next year, it will be at the same place, the same weekend, same schedule ...
with different speakers and story tellers.
I'm so very thrilled that God worked through all of our ideas and brought it all together.
It was a special weekend.
