One of the sweetest events every year is time with the JV ladies at our annual retreat. These are some of the most courageous, loving, tenderhearted, hard working, "on fire for the Lord" women that I know, and it's always a joy to spend a week with them!
We were up at Malenovice this year - a treat for me (and I think for them too!) since it's practically in our backyard.
If you've ever been there you know it's a beautiful, peaceful, restful place where the Lord meets us time after time...and He did this time too! Plus, the gift the staff there gave to us by serving so selflessly made our retreat all the better!
I invited my sister-in-law, Joyce, and long time friend, Jerri, to come and speak to the ladies this year. I have known these women for 25 years, and actually started out in ministry with them and Laura Hash in Germany serving in Malachi all those years ago.
What a gift to me to still be connected to them, continuing to grow in our friendship through the years! It was wonderful to have them join me in ministry for a week with the JV ladies. I am so blessed!
