We finished strong today as we closed out the retreat. God did some incredible things this past four days. Lots of hearts were ministered to, my own included! A couple of really sweet things to note....
Several women from this conference have already given financially to pay it forward to the women that will be attending the next Pure Joy International Retreat in the fall. This group enjoyed the beautiful bracelets made by women that attended our Dominican Republic retreat last year and paid it forward to give the Belize group gifts! Also, one of our precious missionary women that attended the retreat this past week mistakenly sent out information to women in leadership in Belize inviting them to the retreat. When she realized it was for missionary women only, she sent out a letter to correct the information. Out of that process many women in leadership were invited to a luncheon today at noon at our hotel here in Belize to hear a speaker the local ladies brought in and to enjoy a free lunch and fellowship. God works all things for good!
Tonight the team is attending a Belizean Praise and Worship service being held here in the hotel. We are so excited to get to be a part of the worship taking place in this country.
We will then head out in the morning to the airport and will step foot back in the U.S. between 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. At that time we will all board separate planes to our respective states and homes. Pray for no problems at the airport leaving the country and for safe travel.
Thank you to all of you that have given, prayed and those that have allowed your love ones to go. The women were so appreciative.
Love you All,
