Just over 100 pastors’ wives and women in ministry came together at Muskoka Bible Centre from May 4 to 7 for a time of rest and spiritual renewal. And they were blessed!
The speaker was Jenny Boot, wife of pastor and apologist, Joe Boot. Jenny shared her testimony – her conversion, dance and drama training and career, marriage and family as well as her battle with cancer. She reminded women to seek godly wisdom now and not to wait until it is needed. She spoke from Proverbs 2:1-9. Remaining in Christ and His Word is the key to finding wisdom. Jenny cautioned that it is essential to be aware of the worldly wisdom that creeps into our minds and hearts.
Angela Rudd and her worship team from Calvary Baptist Church in Ottawa were very effective in leading the women in worship. Activities after the evening sessions, workshops and mealtime were all highlights that provided time for the women to connect and encourage one another.
The Committee for the retreat had planned well and the attendees were grateful for all the time and consideration that went into the weekend - in spite of the rain and snow!
This ministry is possible because of the contributions of many of our churches. Thank you!
