I think this weekend changed my life forever. I am now determined to walk with Jesus.
This weekend was a blessing to my life. I feel renewed and have a stronger resolve to focus all of my attention on my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! I know I have work to do to grow in the body of Christ. I am looking forward to making the journey! I was living life without knowing my purpose. I now know that my purpose is to prepare myself for my eternal home in Heaven with my Father and His Son who died on Calvary for my sins.
Even as I sat in the background on the men’s team, this retreat really gave me a greater understanding and respect of how SFM helps these women. This is truly an inspiration, and I can’t wait til the next time I am able to serve. Thank you!
I needed this retreat more than I knew I did. It changed my outlook, gave me the truth, took my shame and helped me get past my past. My life has been shattered, but He told me I mattered.
Some retreats are surface events; this retreat goes deep to one’s heart and soul.
God has used you as a tool for me to accept Jesus into my heart and into my life.
I really enjoyed being able to release all my baggage, be myself and be able to grow closer to the Lord.
I really enjoy being a team member. I get blessed probably more than the attendees do. I know I have grown by serving and sitting under such great teaching and being with sold-out women. There is so much love to get and receive, and hopefully the attendees have witnessed Jesus in me. This retreat about perseverance and going through trials has really ministered to me and comforted me as to why we, as believers, go through trials and why God allows us to go through them.
Every time I come for a retreat weekend, God takes me into a deeper level of surrender. He uses this for purification in my life to strip away the areas of ego, self-centeredness and sin. I learn not to judge others and to receive God’s forgiveness in my life. He restores me from bad choices and decisions in the past. I feel nurtured and loved and encouraged when I leave here. Praise God!
This weekend was the most spirit-filled time I have experienced since I chose to accept my Lord and Savior just over a year ago. I am so grateful to everyone who had a hand in this weekend! I was awakened by the Spirit with some strong convictions of some major healing steps to take in my life and I feel God’s hand so strongly on me now. I am blessed to have been here and will return in whatever way God would have me do here. Amen!
This weekend was amazing. God paved my way here SO THAT all I had to do was show up and be open. I accepted Christ as my Lord and Savior and put all my faith in Him.
I have never felt truly loved and accepted but finally feel truly loved and accepted by God and others.
