“Come ye yourselves apart…and rest awhile.” Mark 6:31
Once the meetings were completed, our team went on a retreat for a few days to the island of Modessa. (Formerly known as Coco Loco.) It was such a blessing to have some time to just relax and remember all the amazing ways in which God had blessed us over the past few weeks.
I don’t really know what I could say about our retreat that would interest the average person (I could say a whole lot of things that would interest anyone who was there!), but I shall share a few of the pictures that I took…In hopes that they will be more interesting than words. 🙂
So that’s a brief pictorial version of a couple days of R&R. 🙂 God blessed us in so many ways during our time in the Philippines. The largest way, for me, being my experience with complete reliance–and perfect resting–upon God. Remember when I wrote about visitations? I couldn’t stop marveling at how God used me to do something I frankly wasn’t even willing to do. But I did it because I had to and God blessed. He gave me a desire to grow…a desire to share. And for that I am eternally grateful!
As we left Modessa there was quite a lot of wishing going on. Wishing that it didn’t have to end. Wishing that we could hang out and evangelize with each other for ever and ever…But we had a few more hours for memory making….
All too soon it was all over and I had to leave the group in Los Angeles, CA airport on my flight to Medford, OR. It was a super sad goodbye, only slightly helped by the fact that one day we shall all meet again…If not here on earth, then in the courts above.
May we all remain faithful!
