Please Pray - Praise God for the Family Retreat!

Dear Praying friends and family,

First, please forgive me for getting this email update out a few days later than usual. We’ve had an eventful past week!

Second, thank you so much for praying for our all-church Family Retreat. It was a great success. God provided us with some outstanding teaching (thank you Compass!), beautiful weather, and wonderful fellowship. But most of all he worked to unite families and marriages, showing his design for family.

Last night, in one of our small groups, I listened as a young woman wept with joy at what God was doing with her and husband after they attended the retreat: He was strengthening their marriage, showing them what it meant to be godly parents, and redoubling their resolve as his disciples. This is just one of the many testimonies of God’s work through the retreat that have been shared. I have heard from men, women, youth, and children the ways that God challenged and comforted them through the weekend event.

We’ve put some photos up on the website of the retreat, if you’d like to see some of the event. Please be praying for all who attended, that God would continue to work over the coming weeks and months in each person’s heart, to strengthen our church and our families!

Un abrazo, –Luke
