I am back from Camp Berea in Hebron, NH! Another amazing weekend that I will not soon forget. I have to admit I was a little nervous going into these two past weekends because these women have had the amazing privilege of having Priscilla Evans Shirer speak at their retreat last year and another one before that.
She is such an anointed and gifted Bible teacher! Sharing the stage she taught from was an honor. But I’m human. I’m a woman. And you know we women tend to compare. But I also new God wanted me there. I was completely expectant and dependent on Him to show up BIG TIME!!! And He did not disappoint. He exceeded all expectations and hopes. At least 10 women made first time commitments to Jesus as Savior and close to 100 re-committed their lives to following Him with all of their hearts! I am so thankful I got to be part of it!!!! When we step out in faith and obedience, He can’t help but bless!
Thank you so much Berea retreat team: Kristen, Sue, Lisa, Cissy, Deb, Donna, Nate, Matt, Anoli and so many others!! You are the best. I was so thankful I got to serve with such an amazing team and what a way to kick off my fall speaking season. To you and my new Camp Berea friends, I miss you already. Oh how I wish we could have “remained” together just a little longer – talking, laughing, encouraging, sharing stories, praying. I keep hearing the words of our theme song, “Love is Near” in my head. He sure was near, wasn’t He!? I feel so blessed to have drawn near to Him with each of you!
