It is almost humanly impossible to share everything in my heart from this retreat filled with women who love Jesus and were more than ready to be together again. God has filled my cup to overflowing with blessings in every shape and size. The Methodist Camp Allegheny women's retreat was far beyond anything I ever imagined and I have made so many new acquaintances who have become friends, my cup cannot contain the joy! Women from all surrounding areas plus women who drove from Wisconsin, West Virginia, Virginia, Colorado and probably additional places known by God and forgotten by me attended, but I treasure each one of these special women. Some were able to share their stories, while others shared short conversations during our meals. New songs were learned and a new hand clap of appreciation! I taught four sessions and enjoyed a "fire side chat" with approximately nine ladies. We were able to share our stories on a more intimate level, but there was no fire in the fireplace. On a very, very warm weekend in the mountains, we sat close to a fireplace with our fans going!! Gary assisted me with technology when Satan lifted his head for only moments. With the help of Brittany (a camp worker) and the tech team of Sheila and Carla...well, the presentations continued! And I cannot forget the Committee that worked so hard and diligently to provide numerous extra activities and provided us with a communion service and a time to reflect on the Cross of Christ with every women forming a part of the Cross with a candle. My heart is full. Thank you again to the Committee, the women who attended and most of all to our Lord Jesus Christ who makes all things possible. As soon as they are available, there are many more pictures coming. The retreat had their own sweet photographer and many of my new friends are sending photos of groupings. 'Til next time, God bless!
Please let us know if there is any way we can be of service to you. We count it a privilege and honor to pray for our friends and loved ones. In Him, Cookie & Gary White
