Worthy means commendable, admirable, valuable, and precious. As women, we are all of these in God’s eyes.
Almost a hundred women had a wonderful time today of praise, worship, fellowship, food and mission education… a time of spiritual renewal.
This is Angela Neese’s display from her mission visits to Tajikistan which is just across the Russian border.
Jeanelle also won a door prize and that picture has disappeared! Mysteriously.
All of the lovely models are volunteer workers at CHI, except for Betsy, in the bridal gown, who is the Director of CHI. After the style show, Betsy told us all about the work of CHI orphanage located in Reynosa.
Linda Paydon, chaplain and wife of chaplain Jim Paydon, was the afternoon speaker. Her topic was “Finishing Well.” Linda stated that no matter what mistakes or regrets we have in our life prior to today, we can still Finish Well.
Linda did a fabulous job and then it was time for the prayer chain to be brought into the room. Each link of the chain had a favorite verse and name of a person who had been praying for this retreat since the summer. It was amazing to see how many people were praying for us. The chain was long enough to go around the room at least twice!
The 2011 God’s Worthy Women Retreat was a wonderful success! Thanks to everyone who attended and everyone who worked to make it a success.
