This is what God did last week...

The box above gave you the "fast facts" of last week's retreat, "Gather," where I partnered in ministry with Thrive. These are just facts...but each fact represents one woman who joined in on an amazing week designed to refresh, renew, refocus, and re-energize women serving Jesus in a BIG VARIETY of ways. Besides a few teaching sessions, 14 of those one-on-one appointments were mine...50-minutes of digging deep, processing what is going on in hearts, and establishing some next steps. My 14 came from: India, New Zealand, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Cambodia, Thailand, SE Asia, Guatemala, Colombia, Jordan, Puerto Rico, Spain, Kuwait, and North Africa. By the end of the week, I was definitely tired, but good-tired. During the closing session on Friday, I jotted down some of the testimonies of the 428 women who attended. I'll sign off with these:

"The Lord gave me the clearest direction I've felt in 3 years in one short week!"

"I came into this retreat in deep grief, feeling dead spiritually, but today I feel alive again & connected with women all over the world."

"This was virtual - how can one feel the Holy Spirit through a computer monitor so clearly!"

"I didn't realize how thirsty my soul was, how hungry my heart, or how much I needed fellowship with like-minded women. THIS WEEK WAS A MIRACLE!"

"I am NOT alone. I gained a new perspective."

"I was living in the Sahara Desert (literally and spiritually) and the Lord rehydrated my mind and soul."

THANK YOU ONE AND ALL FOR YOUR PRAYERS THIS PAST WEEK!

As each woman registered, she had to submit a photo. These photos became icons for each speaker to see a list of how many would be in her session. This is a partial from a screen shot I took showing me what to "expect"...
