Idaho Conference Christian Women's Retreat
The threat of rain didn't dampen the spirits of the 110 women in attendance at the Idaho Conference Christian Women’s Retreat, held at beautiful Camp Ida-Haven, Sept. 9–11.
Jennifer Jill Schwirzer—a gifted musician, song writer and author—brought a wonderful mix of music and message throughout the weekend, that perfectly complemented the theme, A Most Precious Message. Schwirzer shared her personal journey, what she calls a “radical” conversion from New Age philosophy and practice to Christianity, and then to Adventist Christianity.
Our mission emphasis this year was building churches in India. Susan Winchester from Caldwell, Idaho, and Joan Green from Meridian, Idaho, teamed up to share an inspiring report from their short-term mission trips to Andhra Pradesh, India, earlier this year.
The weekend included inspiring worship services, a Sabbath evening Pacific Press book and music give-away, and the annual talent show.
As always, the food and fellowship were fabulous.
