Daybreak Women's Retreat
Thank you for your pastoral covering over me this past weekend - I cannot begin to describe what happened at the Daybreak Women's Retreat! I felt that a piece of us, our depth of worship and experience of the transformational power of the Spirit, and that I wore it on my shoulders, (a mantle of sorts upon me), to carry to these women.
I was shocked at how many were so hungry for the Spirit. A few were resistant in the beginning, (looking at me like I was a nutcase) but at the end of the weekend they confessed that they realized, "I wished that I was as broken as Cindy's Rainbow Girls so I could be as filled up with Jesus." They got it!
This openness is so beautifully ushered in by using the large silk banners representing God's humble yet powerful character. By the end of the retreat when we took the flags off the ledges where they were hanging all weekend, the women were racing to grab them. (As Meghan put it, they were fighting over them!) It was not the flags themselves, but the promises that that they represented that they raced for I was so thrilled that God used me to stir up a hunger in their hearts for more of Him!
Thank you for your prayers. This project was WAY bigger than me, and I could not have done it without the prayer support. There were times where I felt the warfare pressing in upon me, and within moments, those prayers on eagle's wings came to my rescue and calmed and centered my spirit.
I am excited to see how God will creatively use us to bring an oasis of His presence to other churches. "Seeker" churches! Wow, is this a new bloom growing in our garden?!
Blessings to you and all you do to equip and encourage God's people.
