Spanish Women's Retreat, First Ever Held in Washington Conference, a Success
Washington Conference recently held it’s first women’s retreat for the rapidly growing Spanish membership. The retreat, held May 14 at the Holiday Inn in Renton, Wash., was planned to accommodate 140 women. However, more than 175 women registered and attended the event.
The theme of the event was “Sweet Fragrance.” Miriam Gonzales, White Memorial Church pastor for evangelism and visitiation from Los Angeles, Calif., shared how each woman is a wonderful fragrance for the Lord. She also described how each one could continue to be that sweet savor to God and to those around her.
The event was organized by Wilma Bing, Washington Conference women’s ministry director, along with the Spanish pastors' spouses and representatives from each of the Washington Conference districts. Plans are already being laid for a 2006 Spanish women's retreat.
